Bears Could Still Be In The TE Market, Jared Cook An Option?

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, it sounds like the Bears are not done exploring tight end options in the free agent market.

This comes after the team re-signed Zach Miller and Rob Housler in the past week and traded TE Martellus Bennett to the Patriots on Wednesdays.

Biggs mentions that while there’s no known if interest in free agent TE Jared CookBears OC Dowell Loggains was in Tennessee with Cook a few years ago, so he could be someone to keep an eye on.

The Packers brought Cook in a for a visit earlier in the week, but that has been his only reported interest since he became available.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Cook to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.

Cook, 28, was a big-ticket free agent signing back in 2013. He was entering the fourth year of his  five-year, $35.11 million contract that included $19 million guaranteed when he was released by the Rams along with B James Laurinaitis and DE Chris Long over a month ago.

In 2015, Cook appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and recorded 39 receptions for 481 yards receiving and no touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 53 tight end out of 67 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.

Yikes. My apology. That’s evidence of the moment I passed out earlier. It’s been updated.
