    Well I only posted that video because of the cook he pulls off in the end zone, but it was a damn good play. Lets hope we can keep up with the rest of our division.

    Jared Cook - TE - Rams

    Rams agreed to terms with TE Jared Cook on a five-year contract.
    Cook, who turns 26 in April, will essentially replace Danny Amendola as the Rams' slot receiver as St. Louis attempts to make more big plays in the passing game. At 6-foot-5, 248, Cook's vertical, straight-line speed has been timed in the 4.4s. The rumored price tag was $8 million per year, which is an awful lot to pay a tight end who's never cleared 50 receptions in a season. The Rams, though, are tired of chain movers like Amendola and Steven Jackson who lack truly big-play ability. Cook, along with Brian Quick -- the organization believes -- has the potential to provide that. He'll be an interesting 2013 fantasy pick with upside. Cook averages 13.1 yards per career catch, with eight touchdowns among only 12 starts (59 games).

    Wow, the talent is there. If the Rams can get that on a consistent basis, we're in business.

    Nice find Nick.

    Here is Cook's contract:

    " Per Jim Wyatt, TE Jared Cook's contract with the#rams is 5 years / $35.1M. A bit less than speculated ($7.5-$8M) but not much. "

    Interesting random stats that probably mean nothing. Hey, I'm bored. But, they're kind of interesting.

    Vernon Davis-16 games played/548 receiving yards
    Jared Cook-13 games played/523 receiving yards

    For real though, I'm interested in the amount of the contract. I love the potential Cook holds, but 7-8 million a year!? Thats ALOT! I was thinking six tops.

    If it does turn out to be a monster deal, Fisher must really have some tricks up his sleeve with Cook. He coached him, and obviously sees something in him that we really haven't been able to because of the terrible offense the Titans have displayed the past few years.

    A little more than I predicted (5yrs/30m), but cannot say I am surprised. If anything I am happy considering rotoworld was saying 8M a year.

    I am still fired up about this signing.

    You need to provide the source when you post information. Putting it in quotes means nothing if we don't know who of where it's coming from.

    If this figure is accurate, then Cook is making on average more than Rob Gronkowski but less than Vernon Davis. So needless to say, he's going to have to improve on those receiving numbers quite a bit to earn that money.

    As in, he very well could be the Rams' #1 receiving target, because I think the expectation with that deal is going to be 900+ yards and double-digit TDs.

    Yeah this is great news. The Rams have two very nice TEs to help the offense. If Jake Long signs, Chance Warmack drafted, and another WR added to the mix, the offense will take a step forward.

    Re: Rams Agree to Terms with Jared Cook!!!!

    Now that we have this big guy on board, how about putting an offer sheet in front of victor cruz? give up a first round pick (to a proven and reliable target) and pay the man some dollars.

    Quick, Cruz, Givens, Cook and Kendricks....that would keep Sam happy!

    It's not often I get to say this, but......I agree with Ferter.

    This is a lot of hub-bub (and cap money) for a guy who hasn't done much in this league. At least not enough to be getting Gronk/Davis type dollars. It took him 3 years to rise above the certain-1st-ballot HOFer Bo Sciafe on the depth chart. And I hope that torn rotator cuff is ready to go.

    Don't get me wrong....In Fishead We Trust. They certainly knocked the 2012 offseason out of the park, so who I am to doubt this one.

    But I'd be lying if I didn't say, this one concerns me a little.

    Which begs the question........why didn't he do these things in Nashville?

    Well, HUb, you have to understand they had a lousy scheme/QB/system, etc.

    Well then what happened to "playmakers just make plays. period."?
