Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson has made it his goal to out rush Adrian Peterson’s single season rushing record of 2,097 yards in 2013. But why? Why does Chris Johnson have a goal to beat Adrian Peterson’s rushing record versus getting to and winning the Super Bowl?
While I will admit that Peterson led his team to the Playoffs on his back in 2012. The poor quarterback play of the Vikings led to their embarrassing loss in the Wild Card Playoff round in 2012... Read more

FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Jake Locker suffered through an injury filled 2012, being shelved for a 5-game span mid-season and really never got a groove going. To make matters a little more interesting, Locker is also recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.
The good news...
Well, contrary to what everybody expected, the Tennessee Titans did not end up using the franchise tag on Jared Cook. The biggest sticking point seemed to be the issue I mostly dismissed in my franchise tag analysis, whether he would be considered a tight end or a wide receiver. This could have been avoided if the Titans and Cook could come to terms on a longer-term deal, but apparently...
Titans Insider Terry McCormick expects Tennessee to franchise TE Jared Cook on Monday.
Cook is reportedly prepared to argue that he should be considered wide receiver given that he lined up as a receiver 67 percent of the time last season. This is a difference of close to $4.5 million.
We wrote yesterday that there’s a precedent for arbitrators splitting the difference in these...
According to Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com, the Tennessee Titans are expected to place the franchise tag on tight end Jared Cook.
If this is the case, you can probably expect Cook and the players union to argue that he should be tagged as a wide receiver. Some people feel like he has a case and could end up winning if he does choose to fight it.

Sean Jenson of the Chicago Tribune reports that a source has informed him that the Bears are “likely” to show interest in impending free agent Jared Cook in the coming weeks.
The Bears have been rumored to be looking for an upgrade at tight end for a few years now, so it’s not surprising that they would at least consider a guy like Cook.
Chicago brought in Aaron Kromer...
The Titans decided not to use their franchise tag on tight end Jared Cook.Fantasy Spin:Cook was preparing to ask for the wide receiver's minimum rather than the significantly lower tight end salary and the Titans decided it just wasn't worth the hassle. Now that Cook is officially a free agent, Jason La Canfora from CBS expects the Rams (coached by Cook's former Tennessee...
Last offseason, I wrote an analysis of which Titans might be franchise tag candidates. Naturally, after I wrote that, every other starting safety scheduled to hit the market got franchised, and the Titans ended up franchising Michael Griffin and later signing him to a long-term deal. This offseason, I wanted to get the positional analyses done first. While I was in the middle of...
The Titans are expected to use their franchise tag on tight end Jared Cook. SOURCE: Terry McCormick, National Football PostFantasy Spin:If only it were that simple. Technically Cook is listed as a tight end but he's trying to argue that he's actually a wide receiver. As a tight end, Cook (44 catches, 523 yards, four TD in 2012) would only be entitled to $6.066 million but...
The Tennessee Titans have decided against franchising free agent tight end Jared Cook.
The Titans have said all off-season that Cook is a big part of their plans, but the team apparently decided against placing the tag on Cook for fear that a grievance to be tagged as a wide receiver might fall in Cook's favor.
The tight end franchise number is $6.07 million, while the...
Terrell Sinkfield quickly and rather dramatically threw himself onto the radar of many NFL teams following a blazing 40 time during Monday’s pro day at the University of Minnesota.
The Northern Iowa wide receiver reportedly ran a 4.19 40-yard dash on his second attempt, stunning scouts so much that he was asked to run a third time. For those scoring at home, that is a full .05...
At the University of Minnesota's Pro Day, Northern Iowa's Terrell Sinkfield bested the NFL Scouting Combine record of 4.24 in the 40-yard-dash.
