Tennessee Titans tight end Jared Cook is in the final year of his contract and would like the chance to showcase his talent and work towards a big free agent contract this offseason. Unfortunately for Cook, he isn’t getting a fair opportunity from the Titans.
Cook played less than 50 percent of the team’s offensive snaps in four out of eight games this season. This past week, Cook only received four targets and played in just 42 percent of the team’s offensive snaps.
Now, with the trade deadline just 24 hours away, signs point towards Cook requesting a trade.
Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean approached Cook’s agent about a possible trade request and was hit with the always popular, “no comment.”
Cook has always been an athletic tight end who could provide trouble for opposing defenses if given the proper opportunity. His college coach, Steve Spurrier, once said that Cook is as naturally talented as Detroit Lions star receiver Calvin Johnson. That type of glowing endorsement is what could intrigue potential NFL suitors.
