Franchising him is the right thing to do. If he goes out and has a 70 catch 900 yard season then he is probably gone for good since he will be so expensive but at least we got that much out of him. I do long for the days when we had a TE who could play every down and be a real asset to the passing game like Wycheck was. And back then we had the big blocking TE also in Kinney. Take any of the every down TEs i have talked about, Davis, Olsen, Keller and combine them with Stevens and that is what we would have. The hope here is that we get a great season out of Cook and if he has over priced himself Thompson should be ready to produce in 2014. Perhaps Thomason will be our long term answer at that position.
