With the Rams last season, Jared Cook was catching passes from Nick Foles and Case Keenum. On the Packers this season, Cook will catch passes from Aaron Rodgers. As you’d expect, Cook thinks that’s an upgrade.
Cook said today that he’s already talked to Rodgers and the two of them are excited about working together, and that the presence of Rodgers is a major reason he went to Green Bay.
“I think I was more excited than he was, just to be able to play with somebody that’s so great at what he does, and somebody that’s proven,” Cook said, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “It was more than the top priority I was looking for. It was imperative that I find a person that’s known for getting the job done, and is good at what they do. I think that he’s probably one of the best in the league at doing it, clearly.”
Cook was careful not to insult Foles or Keenum as he discussed how frustrating last season was.
“Last year was a rough year, man. It was just the luck of the draw. It wasn’t anybody’s fault. It’s just things didn’t pan out the way the organization had planned,” Cook said.
This season, Cook feels confident that things will go as planned. That’s easier when you have a great quarterback.
