Franchise tag is $5.962 for TEs. I think I could deal with a 1yr/5.962M deal. Cook has complained about not wanting to be on this team, but that's because we weren't utilizing him. However, his blocking is probably the worst by any TEs in the NFL. His drops are drive killers. I'd rather have Cook in there than Stevens & Thompson, plus we have the money... so why not. If he's demanding a big contract (anything over $5Mil) don't even waste our time and let him go.
