I cannot link the article from PFT because I am on my phone but Titans young TE Jared Cook has requested a trade.

If I am the Bears I make the call and see what the price is.

Cook has the size 6'5" 260lbs and athletic ability that we apparently covet as well as better hands and athletic ability than anyone on the Bears. His stats don't show it right now but this guy could be the next big TE.

2014 pick or players.

I really hope Emery is looking into this. Its a weak point in this offense that needs to be fixed.

Only if he does it pro wrestling style. On Sunday, he lines up for Tennessee, turns around, hits Chris Johnson with a folding chair, then rips off his Titans jersey to reveal a Bears jersey underneath.

This is the type of player you trade for someone who's best football is in front of them.

I know we are tight on picks for this year but this would be a nice pick up.

I wonder what it would take. I'd assume he'd be worth something similar to Olsen. Marshall and Jeffery are our only consistent recieving threats, Jared Cook would give us an entirely new element for teams to gameplan around. I really hope Emery is considering it, He is far from hitting his ceiling IMO whereas Kellen Davis has reached his ceiling, and he sucks.

Emery always says he's always looking to upgrade the roster at every position that needs work, hopefully we do this.

After reading into this a bit more, I REALLY want this to happen.

Remember how Brandon Marshall acted in Denver when he wanted to leave? Jared Cook doesn't have the baggage that Marshall had and would require less to get him. I'd offer Tennessee our fourth if in Emery's position.

Brandon Marshall was disgruntled, as was Jay Cutler. Care to backtrack on that one?

Let's look at it this way:

- He's a FA at the end of the year
- The team he's traded to would only get 8 weeks until he can sign anywhere
- He's disgruntled and wants out and would likely leave via FA if he's not traded

The Titans have very little leverage in these talks, so they may as well trade him for as much as they can get now. The deadline being pushed back until Thursday should help them out. I'd be willing to offer our 4th.

Sign me up for that camp. He is definitely worth a 4th.

Jared Cook has every right to be disgruntled. Last game our blocking TE was on the field more. Cook has top 5 potential but when you have a dumb OC that won't get him on the field or the ball, he can't show it. It's not like he's trouble or anything. Having said this, he's not going anywhere for now

As I said in the other thread if we could grab Cook for a 4th I would jump all over it right now…I wouldn’t go any higher than that since he is going to be an FA at the end of the season…looking at what Emery has done so far this season he is always looking for ways to improve the team…Cook certainly would do that…well worth the call…

Another interesting road we could go down…and I’m not saying I would want us to do this…but we could offer up Corey Wootton…he has been great for us this year and with how bad the Titans D is and with their anaemic pass rush he could be of interest to them.

I would hate to lose Wootton and because of DE vs TE I would ask for a pick back.

But Cook is about to explode and we have DE depth.
