Jared Cook out for season with torn rotator cuff

Tight end Jared Cook has been named the Titans’ recipient of the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award as a result of his community service.

That means he’s a finalist for the league-wide honor handed out during Super Bowl week. Cook’s going to have plenty of time to lobby for votes.

Coach Mike Munchak announced Monday that Cook will miss the rest of the season after tearing his rotator cuff in Sunday’s loss to the Colts. That ends his year with 44 catches and 523 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games.

Cook’s contract is up at the end of the season and he reportedly requested a trade before the deadline this year in hopes of going to a team that utilized him more often in the offense. That could be a route available to him in the offseason, although the Titans could conceivably use their franchise tag on him in order to make sure Cook sticks around a little longer.

    You really think those that qualify for community service awards, actually lobby for votes??

    Sad.

    Cook is a class act and has tremendous talent. Yet the ineptness of the owner, GM, and coaches prevent him from being a top notch TE in the league. If he went to a good team he could post insane numbers

    Allow him to go to a (real) NFL team, and have a chance to use his talent and enjoy his time as a pro. Who “wants” to be Titan?

    We’d love him in Chicago

    And so it goes.. As a Titan fan, I knew it’d go this way. Don’t trade him to get at least a draft pick out of it. Let his contract run out and lose him for nothing. Meanwhile, he’ll go on to have a Pro Bowl season, while we’re 4-12 again.
