FF Locker Room:
Jake Locker, QB, Tennessee Titans
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 though, if you want to call it that, is that Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster has said that he believes Locker will be ready for the minicamps which are in June.
Locker is decked out with some really solid wide receiver targets in Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Nate Washington as well as tight end Jared Cook. But can he stay healthy enough to utilize the weaponry that he has at his disposal? That question really can’t be answered yet as seeing will be believing.
Look for Locker, if healthy, to win the Titans starting quarterback gig while performing as a low-end QB2 as a best case scenar...

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...
Titans free agent tight end Jared Cook was not given the franchise tag on Monday and hell likely draw a lot of interest including from the Bears, Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun Times reports citing a league source.
A handful of clubs have a need for a pass-catching tight end, and Cook is arguably the most desirable, given his combination of size (6 foot 5, 246 pounds), speed...
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...
