The Saints have officially released TE Jared Cook and TE Josh Hill. The Cook move is procedural, as he was scheduled to be a free agent at the start of the new league year.
Jared Cook will be 34 at the start of the 2021 season and may have some trouble finding a starting gig, but does still have some playmaking abilities. Josh Hill could find work in the blocking department for a team this season, after spending all his eight-year career with the Saints. For now, Adam Trautman assumes the starting role in New Orleans at TE.
NO TE Jared Cook - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Panthers
For only the second time this season, Jared Cook topped 80 yards in a game, the other time being back in Week 1. No Michael Thomas has allowed Cook to get back on track. He faces a Carolina team he scored a touchdown against back in Week 7 and sits just inside our top 12 tight ends for the final week.
