New York Giants: Tight Ends To Consider In Free Agency
Age: 29 (4/7/1987)
Experience: 8 Seasons
2016 Season Statistics: 10 GP, 30 REC, 377 YDS, 1 TD, 19 FD
In addition to making one of the greatest catches of all-time, Jared Cook has been one of the more quietly consistent players in the NFL. He’s done so with Aaron Rodgers, who can make a paper bag look like a quality receiver, and a number of questionable quarterbacks in Tennessee and St. Louis.
If the New York Giants are hoping to add a quality receiver at the tight end position, then Cook could be the ideal target.
Cook recorded at least 44 receptions and 523 receiving yards in every season from 2011 through 2014. He followed with 39 receptions for 481 yards during the 2015 campaign and maintained solid production in 2016.
Despite playing in just 10 regular season games, he recorded 30 receptions, 377 yards, and a touchdown in a deep Packers receiving corps.
In addition to being a high-quality option in the passing attack, he’s also a quality blocker for both the run and pass. He’s not necessarily elite in either regard, but he can be helpful if the Giants solidify the offensive line.
If Cook can be had on an affordable short-term deal, it would be wise for the Giants to look into the possibility of acquiring his services.
