The Tennessee Titans could never find that perfect balance for tight end Jared Cook. Blessed with impressive natural talent, Cook showed flashes of brilliance during his time with the Titans, but consistency was the issue.
Cook requested that the Titans pay him like a top tight end – actually – like a top wide receiver, as he demanded to be franchise tagged as a wide out which the Titans of course denied. That opened the window for the St. Louis Rams, who took a chance on Cook and signed him to a five year contract.
Bradford said he already has a good feel for Cook, who came to the Rams from Tennessee via free agency in March.
“I think you saw today my trust with Jared,” Bradford said. “I’ve got all the trust in the world that if I put the ball up there he’s gonna go get it. And I think every time I step out on the field that comfort level grows.”
Assuming Cook and Bradford have the connection they say they do, the 2009 third round draft pick is poised for an impressive season.
