    A 4th rounder is about all he is worth,at least it's something. Jordan reed will probably be there in the 4th.

    You dont replace him. He was in on 60 snaps last season according to a tweet posted in another thread. You dont replace someone who is in 4 snaps a game. You let Thompson line up as a blocker. Stephens can be called on to pick up the 3rd and 8. Then you draft/sign a low tier TE for depth. Or, if FA doenst pan out and we miss on all our potential upgrades, then you look at TE.


    Watch him be signed before the FA starts.

    why do people hate on cook? he was strongly under-utilized and has had vince young, kerry collins, hasselbeck and locker throwing to him off and on blaw ... no consistency ...

    Were just losing another weapon for Locker. Who the hell is going to play tight end now? Someone elses scraps on the cheap?

    Bears may want him now. Watch Cook go off with Cutler.

    Again - Bears want him, but have no money to pay him.

    I don't think the problem was always the quarterbacks. If you have 4 different qbs throwing to you and none of them can find a good connection I think its you. I remember 2011 watching Hasselbeck yell at him for running the wrong routes and getting picked off all the time.

    That number can't be right though because he had more than 60 targets.

    You are right, he was targeted 72 times so that number cant be right.

    Its a two way street. He has made it clear he does not want to be here. First off he asked for a trade last year. Secondly he pulled this stunt of wanting to be franchised as a WR, he knew we would not do it. He wants out.


    theres no point in defending your girlfriend when she is walking away from you


    There are some that think he goes on and become a superstar. I dont see it.
