Tennessee tight end Jared Cook says he's happy with his role in the Tennessee offense and only wants to win because winning is ''huge.'' He just never answered questions Thursday on whether or not he asked to be traded. Coach Mike Munchak said Monday this is not the time for agents to stir the pot when asked if Cook requested a trade. Cook spoke Thursday after practice and dodged questions about whether or not his agent asked for the tight end to be traded. Cook says he has to do his job and focus on Chicago (6-1) for Sunday's game. The tight end is in the last year of his contract, and the Titans are 3-5. Cook says they're nobodies when losing and would be everything if they were winning. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
