Tennessee Titans Plan To Involve Jared Cook In Offense More


The Tennessee Titans have a very athletic weapon at tight end in Jared Cook. While Cook is a big weapon for the Titans who has the ability to create mismatches, the Titans failed to get Cook involved until late in last week’s game. Cook had zero catches through the first three quarters.

Following the loss, offensive coordinator Chris Palmer admitted that he wishes he would have gotten the ball to Cook earlier in the game against the Vikings.

Through the first five weeks of the season, Cook has only been targeted 28 times. The good news for Tennessee is that Cook has made the best of those targets hauling in 19 catches for 237 yards and two touchdowns. Cook could see his numbers spike if he receives more targets early in often as the Titans offense moves forward.
