Earlier today it was reported that the Bears are interested in going after Titans tight end Jared Cook when free agency kicks off next week. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network (via NFL.com), the Titans plan on doing all they can to re-sign Cook and not let him leave Tennessee. Although Cook is eager to test the market, the Titans aren’t prepared to let him walk without presenting a strong long-term offer. In fact, one Titans source emphasized to Rapoport at the NFL Scouting Combine, “We are not losing him.” New coordinator Dowell Loggains is tweaking the offense to feature the short-passing game to help Jake Locker make quicker decisions in the pocket. He’s counting on the dynamic Cook as a primary read in Locker’s progression. The Titans will continue talking to Cook’s representatives leading up to the start of free agency next week. If a compromise can’t be reached, Rapoport reports at least seven teams are interested in the “tight end.” In which case, the Chicago Bears will have competition for his services.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
