    Jared Cook To Be Used All Over For Rams, Jeff Fisher Says

    Jared Cook to be used all over for Rams, Jeff Fisher says

    By Kevin Patra NFL.com
    Published: June 30, 2013 at 09:59 a.m.

    After a general hesitancy to use the uber-skilled Jared Cook in his first stint coaching the tight end, St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher is looking forward to his new playmaking toy.

    "He's obviously got years of experience under his belt, he understands the league, he understands defenses and he's picked things up really well," Fisher told the Tennessean on Saturday at a charity golf tournament to honor former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger. "We're excited about creating mismatches, and offensive success these days is about creating mismatches."

    Fisher coached Cook in the tight end's first two seasons with the Titans, during which Cook struggled with blocking and gaining his coach's faith -- he had just nine receptions in 14 games as a rookie in 2009.

    Fisher said he was surprised Cook hit the open market this offseason and that the Rams plan to use him in a diverse set of packages.

    "He's going to play all over the place," Fisher said. "We've even got him in the backfield, so we've got some good things for him."

    Cook has the potential to be a big playmaker along with Tavon Austin in the Rams' revamped passing game. However, we've said that in the past.

    Cook's tendency for drops and inconsistent play has held him back from becoming one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the NFL.

    At this risk of sounding like a smart*** but considering what the Rams are paying for him--I SURE HOPE THEY DO

    With both Cook and Austin playing multiple positions on the line and in the backfield, the Rams offense is going to be a shell game for opposing defenses. I can't wait to see it.

    It also will keep versatile talent on the field when we run the no-huddle offense. Tav, Givens, Cookie, Kendricks and one of our running backs. Opposing defenses will get tired chasing these guys around without any substitutions. Meanwhile our D is loaded with youth and speed. T.J. McDonald and Ogletree should provide a boost when we play Stumpy and Kreeper. This year the Rams O should be anything but boring.

    That's exactly what I really get excited about. I could see them running a lot of substitutions and then as soon as Tavon, Givens, Cook, Kendricks and Pead are out there they go no huddle. It's exciting to think that they can have any one of Tavon, Cook and Pead in the backfield knowing that all three can also catch the ball reliably. I absolutely can't wait for the season to start.
