Green Bay signs TE Jared Cook-- Mon Mar 28 10:45 am --
The Packers have agreed to terms with eighth-year tight end Jared Cook, who will sign his contract Monday pending a physical, a league source confirmed. Although the Packers offered a two-year deal, the two sides eventually settled on a one-year deal could total $3.65 million with incentives, USA Today reported.(Green Bay Press Gazette)
FF Today's Take:The Rams released Cook this off-season and he reportedly had interest from Atlanta, Chicago and Carolina. He'll play a complimentary role in the offense along with Richard Rodgers. It sounds like the Packers are wanting to feature the tight end more this season down the middle of the field. Even so, Cook's fantasy value will likely be hit or miss given the amount of weapons in the offense. He's on the TE2 radar for redraft leagues.
Rams release three including TE Jared Cook-- Fri Feb 19 4:00 pm --
DE Chris Long, LB James Laurinaitis also cut
The team released defensive end Chris Long, linebacker James Laurinaitis and tight end Jared Cook on Friday. The club later confirmed the moves.
"This is the time of year when all NFL teams are faced with difficult decisions regarding their veteran players," Rams coach Jeff Fisher said in a statement
FF Today's Take:The team will save roughly $25 million in cap space with the cuts while absorbing $4.7 million in dead money. Cook was set to count $8.3 million against the cap and while he's shown flashes of play-making ability he never became a consistent producer in the Rams offense.
