“That offense really didn’t suit me,’’ Rams TE Jared Cook said of Tennessee's offense. “It didn’t fit me. That’s just how it is. Every team a player goes to, the fit is not perfect. Some guys have to move around to two or three teams before they find the perfect fit.’’
But Cook, who was also pursued by the Miami Dolphins, likes what he has seen so far in St. Louis. “I think I’m on an elevator going up,” he said in his first meeting with the local media.
“What we’re getting from Jared out there is what we expected,’’ HC Jeff Fisher said. “The ball’s going around, we’re matching him up, we’re creating mismatches, he’s making plays.
“Whether or not (he was underutilized with Tennessee), we feel like he can add a dimension to our offense that we don’t have.’’
Cook had a breakout season after Jeff Fisher left Tennessee, which has us a bit leery about his prospects for 2013. But Fisher is a defensive mind, so it's up to OC Brian Schottenheimer to get Cook involved in the offense, and the Rams did make him their first priority in free agency. Consider him a TE2 with upside.
