    This was actually a smart move.

    If you tag him, he's going to win the battle and get his 10.5 million. Do you REALLY think he's worth that?

    Well looks like Bowe is a Chief for a while now, there goes that option.

    Why keep Cook for 6 when you could most likely get Bennett or Walker for 7-8?

    As long as we replace him this is a good deal

    I want them to try and sign him too.

    But he was going to win the WR/TE battle. So if you tag him, and he wins that, you're on the hook for 10.5 million.

    A deal is still possible, so no reason to cry (yet)

    I think we're in little position to argue.

    He's by far the best player we have on offense. We have a QB that sucks even with him-- that's trying to improve.

    We have no other TE threat on the team.

    So yes. Basically we can/should pay. If nothing else- the TE option.





    You guys are so ridiculously still caught up in Jeff Fisher's nonsense. It amazes me. He was the perfect coach for this idiotic fanbase.

    No, I'm not caught up in Jeff Fisher offense.

    Just because you have the money to overpay doesn't mean you do it.

    I want you, Deuce Wayne, the beat talent scout on the interwebz, to proclaim that Jared Cook is worth the tag of a WR.

    Cook blows up on his next team, becomes an elite TE in the league.

    Calling it.

    Tight ends are dominating in this league. Now we pretty much don't even have one considering the garbage we had behind him.

    Taylor Thompson to be named the starter in 3...2...1...

    Cook is overrated anyway... yeah he comes up with the odd big play here and there, but he has dropped far too many chances over his time. He is also a dumb crybaby and can't block to save his life. Draft a proper tight end like Zach Ertz plz Mr. Ruston Webster.
