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.
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.
