    His agent has a point. Does not mean I want them to give him the WR tender. I am not even too high on giving him the TE tender. Agent does have a point if that is how he is lining up.

    We're going to be using a lot more two TE-sets, so if Cook does well as a TE (under TE money) he'll get the payday he's hoping for.

    My question would be what is the measurable timeframe? They are looking at last season, but if I were arguing on behalf of the Titans, I would A) look at the percentage of time lined up in the slot over his entire career, not just last season. What would those numbers look like and B) what other criteria is used, plenty of running backs line up as receivers a high percentage of the time too. Do meetings count - TE vs WR meetings. Does he report to the TE coach or the WR coach?

    He's a TE, though. I get he lines up a ton in the slot, but still.. he attends TE meetings, TE coach helps him, etc... he's listed as a TIGHTEND. TEs are starting to get paid more now, so eventually the TE tag will go up.. until then, sucks to suck Cook.

    The franchise tag is for NEXT season. I don't get how his agent can claim just last season as the basis for this. Wouldn't you go back and look at his entire Titans career to determine whether or not he's a TE or WR?

    Here's a compromise: Cook takes the TE franchise money but he has to play 51% at the TE position.

    :huh:

    Pretty soon (if this works for Cook) Aaron Hernandez' agent will try holding up the Patriots front office asking for RB money.

    No one really knows about his inability to block because we hardly ever give him the chance.

    The part of all of this that I like best is that Cook's whole argument is based on the fact that he's so bad as a traditional TE that the Titans had to line him up out wide. In order to get more money, he has to prove that he sucks.
