St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher knows tight end Jared Cook well, and while he didn't show much faith in him during the their time in Tennessee, he's now looking forward to utilizing an improved player in numerous situations. "He's obviously got years of experience under his belt, he understands the league, he understands defenses and he's picked things up really well," Fisher told the Tennessean. "We're excited about creating mismatches, and offensive success these days is about creating mismatches." With the addition of rookie receiver Tavon Austin, Fisher certainly has some toys to play with in 2013. At Tennessee, Cook struggled with blocking and had a tendency for drops. Fisher was hesitant to use him, but it's a new game in St. Louis, where the head coach thinks Cook will do well in some creative packages. "He's going to play all over the place," he said. "We've even got him in the backfield, so we've got some good things for him."

Strippers Got Tavon Austin Kicked Off Twitter
