The 6-foot-5, 246-pound Jared Cook has had a lot of impressive catches during Titans minicamp practices, but he’s also had some bad drops. He’s lined up at tight end as well as split out wide like a receiver, and at times he’s seemed overwhelmed with everything the coaching staff is throwing at him.
Titans offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger would like to use Cook the same way he used another pretty good tight end, eight-time Pro Bowl pick Shannon Sharpe, while with the Broncos. Heimerdinger said it’s unfair to compare the two at this point except that Sharpe was better at the line of scrimmage and Cook is faster.
“I still have to find out what he can do,’’ Heimerdinger said. “I get excited now when he gets lines up right.’’
If Cook gets that part of the game plan down, the Titans plan using him in a variety of ways.
