According to the Nashville Tennessean, the Titans are "very much interested" in re-signing impending free agent Jared Cook.
However, Cook expressed displeasure with the Titans offense after Week 17, and is miffed by their firing of TEs coach John Zernhelt. "I just don't understand that move. Point black," Cook said. The Titans remain high on Cook's ability, but continued to underutilize him this season. It sounds like Cook very much wants to test the open market, so the only way he'll be assured of staying in Tennessee is via the franchise tag.
