    So its offical, we are not tagging Jared Cook at either TE or WR. Didnt want to be on the hook for 10+ million if were too lose in arbitration. They felt things were swinging toward Cooks favor in that regard. Dont know whether or not there is still a chance we sign him to a long term deal. (h/t jim wyatt)

    I'd still like for us to try to retain him

    Think we need to re-sign him for sure. Too big of a weapon for Locker with no replacement on the roster or much in FA that wont cost a lot. Give him 3/23-25

    The thing I don't get is, we're in a win now or pack your bags mode, why not shell out the extra cash to keep a weapon like Cook?

    Because he's inconsistent.

    10.5 million for 500+ yards receiving?

    I never considered even doing that WR crap he's pulling, he's worth at best $6M for this one year, then we'd go from there.

    I still wish we'd try and sign him long term to a deal worth 5-6 million annually, but I don't think it's going to happen.
