Jared Cook #89 TE
Tennessee Titans | Official Team Site
Height: 6-5 Weight: 248 Age: 25
Born: 4/7/1987 Birmingham , AL
College: South Carolina
Experience: 4th season
High School: North Gwinnett HS

I am not seeing the attraction. I don't see an up grade over Watson or Cameron.

Help me out here what am I missing?

I think he is easily a top 10 TE in the nfl right now.


Easily?

He's put up Benjamin Watson like numbers over the last two seasons, will need a contract extension and is barking to get off a bad team.

He's a young talent so I would take a flier on him, but I'm not going to sell the house to get him.

Would you consider dealing Cameron in the deal? I think they are the same type of player anyways. More receiving than blocking.


No. Cameron has a lot of potential and Cook is set to become a free agent. It would suck if the Browns weren't able to resign him and they lost both him and Cameron.

Anyway, I think Cook is very talented but he hasn't lived up to his potential. I'm not sure how much I'd give up for him since he's set to become a free agent. If the asking price was a 5th-round pick or less, then I would pull the trigger. If it's more, then I say no thanks. If the Browns really want him, then try to sign him in the offseason.

No thanks. Too inconsistant.

We can find better players in the draft.

I'll pass.

And usually, mid season trades net higher draft picks for players b/c a draft pick is less valuable at this time of year ala Edwards and Roy Williams trades.

Not interested. I actually like Alex Smith a lot, he is becoming a decent all around TE. Smith isnt a playmaker like Graham, Gronk or VD, but he does his job. Cameron is coming around. And Ben Watson is fine too.

Seems like a luxury move at this point. Now if we could land a safety to spell Usama Young, I'd be interested.

No, Smith is not. He's a above average blocker. average receiver. Very smart football player. Oh, and knows the WCO inside and out.

Cook is extremely overrated. And is one dimensional.

I'd give a 6th, maybe a 5th, but that's about it. Good receiving threat, but we already have that type of player in Cameron

if he was all those things than why the hell isnt he our starting TE because Watson is a below avg blocker, an ok receiver and doesnt know the offense as well as smith.

smith is garbage, 21 career games, he only has 1 TD. if he is such a stud in the WCO like you say than he would of been relied upon more. IMO he is garbage!!!

I'd pass, Cook won't do anything but take minutes from Cameron and cost us a draft pick. He's Ben Watson with a larger price tag.

Bulldog, we agree on most things, but Alex Smith is trash.

He's a semi-decent FB, but he is not a good TE.

If Alex Smith is holding us back from trading for a legit TE, then we have a problem.

For a third string TE, Alex Smith is not garbage

You guys are taking what I'm saying out of context.

Candy nailed what I'm trying to say.

I also never said he was a stud..... c'mon Buno. I'm just saying as far as where to be and what to do, he's knows the WCO.

He's not physically gifted. But he's a good blocker and OK receiver. Which I think would be good attributes to have as a third TE. He's quality depth, but would be very subpar as a starter.

Its the top end of the depth chart that needs upgraded at TE. Thats not what Cook would do. He's a more experienced Jordan Cameron.

Agreed

I just don't see why he is relevant when bringing up acquiring another TE.

Right now we have an old man one hit from retirement, Alex Smith and a kid who is in his 2nd year of a new sport.

Not saying Cameron can't be good, but for a fair price, i'd love to have cook.
