NASHVILLE, Tenn. In making the biggest move of the off-season thus far, the Tennessee Titans did nothing.
Coveted tight end Jared Cook did not receive the team's franchise tag by Monday's deadline for roster retention. Come Tuesday, should the Titans not be able to re-sign their 2009 third-round draft pick, Cook will enter the free-agency market.
This past weekend, Cook reportedly turned down a long-term contract offer from Titans general manager Ruston Webster and coach Mike Munchak, who had steadfastly proclaimed they would work diligently to make sure Cook returns.
But with Cook apparently not returning to the roster, you can add tight end among the positions of need for the team this off-season, joining interior offensive linemen, defensive line, strong safety and backup running back. Cook's departure comes as a blow to a roster spot that seemed destined for achievement under new offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains.
At this stage of the game, though, the Tit...
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
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 Tennessee Titans have kept one of their pending free agents off the market, signing defensive end Keyunta Dawson to a one-year contract.
The Titans announced the deal Thursday. That leaves them with 16 players set to become free agents Tuesday.
Dawson originally signed with Tennessee last year, but the veteran played in the first three games of the season before a hamstring...
Naturally, since in yesterday's post I noted the Titans hadn't been very active in re-signing their own players, they went ahead and reupped two, re-signing kicker Rob Bironas and defensive end Keyunta Dawson. Bironas's deal is reportedly for $6.7 million over two years, while Dawson's is apparently another one-year deal for the league minimum.
As I noted in my...

FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Having enjoyed a solid NFL career, Matt Hasselbeck’s days as being the lead quarterback for an NFL franchise seems to be fading. Rather than trying to lead the troops to victory he is now focusing more on grooming Jake Locker in hopes...
With plenty of cash to spend, it appears that the Miami Dolphins are ready to stock up on some playmakers for second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill heading into 2013. 2012 leading receiver Brian Hartline appears to be in negotiations with the Dolphins for a new contract and reports are suggesting that with the opening of the free agency period, Miami is going hard after two offensive...
Jason La Canfora of CBS reports that Rob Bironas has inked a two-year deal with the Tennessee Titans.Fantasy Spin:Bironas' 80.6 percent success rate in 2012 was his lowest since 2006. His longest make this past season came from 53 yards out.
When it comes to drafting players, NFL teams must know everything there is to know about every player. Whether it be stats, measurable, off the field behavior, etc. EVERYTHING is under the microscope.So why do so many teams screw up first round draft picks?Teams can only do so much to gain insight on how a player will develop. The speed of the game is so much quicker than in college...
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...
