Jared Cook to visit Vikings if no deal in Seattle

If the Seahawks can’t pick up their second Packer of the day, he might become a division rival.

According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, free agent tight end Jared Cook is scheduled to visit the Vikings, if he doesn’t complete a deal with the Seahawks during his visit today.

Pairing Cook with Kyle Rudolph would be an interesting idea for a Vikings offense which is in desperate need of an identity.

Rudolph caught a career-high 83 passes for 840 yards and seven touchdowns last year, and doubling down with another receiving target at the position gives them options with their lack of a run game (though Latavius Murray is visiting).

    Cook > Rudolph

    Please no, you have already spent to much money on Rudolph who isn’t a good blocker and has too many drops for a guy who can’t block. Draft is deep in TE, go get a legit playmaker, please.

    You can file this under, No Doy!
    The Seahawks and Barneys sure love those used Packers.

    In fact, I heard a fight between broke out between their scouts just outside the Lambeau Field dumpsters.

    Which is fitting given how often Cook vanishes in games.

    Cook w/Rogers = not much
    Cook w/Bradford = flushing cap money

  10. mnfaninil says: Mar 14, 2017 1:21 PM

    There are 8 TE’s who ran 4.5 or better in the upcoming draft.

    Purple is the last resort!

  12. The Phantom Stranger says: Mar 14, 2017 1:21 PM

    What is Spielman doing here? It seems like he’s visiting with every ex-Packer available, and none of them are worth jack squat. I would have been interested in T.J. Lang but they weren’t linked to him.

  13. codytha035 says: Mar 14, 2017 1:22 PM

    Watch Sam Bradford turn Cook from a serviceable NFL TE to total garbage. Should be fun to watch!

  14. waggle43 says: Mar 14, 2017 1:24 PM

    Don’t like this. Morgan will see more playing time this season, and the guy has great hands and good size.

  15. codytha035 says: Mar 14, 2017 1:26 PM

    lots of players visiting MN, but no one actually wants to live there or play there.

    Imagine that

  16. Frazier28/7 says: Mar 14, 2017 1:29 PM

    Rudolph/Cook > Bennett/Kendricks.

    you guys sign anyone to take over for TJ Lang? going with a second year player or a rookie, eh? good luck with that.

    Cooks agent got too greedy making it possible for Cook to become a Viking so it would be great to see them sign him at top dollar like his agent desires.look at all the Packers castoffs that resurrected their careers with the Vikings.this will make the Vikings almost unbeatable.

  18. dawoger says: Mar 14, 2017 1:39 PM

    Please permit me to put this in it’s proper perspective, the queens are more concerned in trying to win a few minor PR victories in the media against the Pack then putting a team together that can beat them. Waste Management needs to buy the naming rights from US bank.

    Ellison’s father’s head will explode.

  20. The Phantom Stranger says: Mar 14, 2017 1:52 PM

    I’m guessing Cook’s agent floated that Cook would visit the Vikings if he doesn’t get a deal from Seattle. Seattle would be more likely to sign him right away if they think they could lose him to someone else. I wonder how much truth there is to any of these reports. It really makes no sense for the Vikings to be interested in him.

    Can he make a 15 yard fg

    You forgot:

    -Toxic leadership
    -Viquits

    It’s only two, but they’re two HUGE ones; other than that, you did a pretty fair job of describing them.

    Humm, how is that, again?

  24. truthbetold109 says: Mar 14, 2017 2:33 PM

    Don’t do it, Jared. You should call Greg Jennings and let him tell you how the vikings ruined his career.

    Be smart, sign with Seattle!

    Cellerperformance says Cook > Rudolph Blahhahaha More like Bradford > erin

    bradford will overthrow him on his third down checkdowns now!

  27. basilray says: Mar 14, 2017 3:27 PM

    Hard pass.

    ——————————————-
    So let me get this straight… People are lining up to kick a fg from 2 yards deep in the endzone? I would have taken the Touchdown that I just scored.

    Moron.

    He would never fit the Viking offense, he does best running the deeper routes and the Vikings rarely throw the ball over 5 yards, especially on 3rd and 8.
