Biography

PRO: Tight end Jared Cook possesses a rare combination of speed, athleticism and pass-catching skills.  Now in his fourth year, he has become one of the team’s primary offensive weapons.  After a rookie season in which he played sparingly, putting up nine receptions for 74 yards, he enjoyed a strong sophomore campaign with 29 receptions for 361 yards and a touchdown.  Cook flourished in the second half of the 2010 season, tying for 10th among NFL tight ends with 26 catches in the final eight games.   He made further strides in 2011 by setting career highs in every receiving category, including a total of 759 receiving yards, which ranked second in franchise history for a tight end (768 by Frank Wycheck in 1998).  Widely considered one of the top playmakers at his position coming out of college, the Titans thought highly enough of him that they traded a 2010 second-round draft choice to the New England Patriots to acquire him in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft. 

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
• In 2011, Cook set career highs in every receiving category, totaling 759 yards and three touchdowns on 49 receptions.  He ranked third on the team in receptions and second in receiving yards.  His yardage total also ranked second in franchise history by a tight end, finishing a close second behind Frank Wycheck’s 768 yards in 1998.
• Cook posted 169 receiving yards against Jacksonville on Dec. 24, 2011, not only setting a career high but also setting a new single-game franchise record for a tight end. Previously, Dave Casper held the mark for franchise tight ends with 150 receiving yards against Cleveland on Nov. 30, 1980.
• Cook caught his first career touchdown on a 22-yard reception from Kerry Collins at Kansas City on Dec. 26, 2010.
• In a three-year career at South Carolina, Cook, who originally entered college as a wide receiver, hauled in 73 passes for 1,107 yards (15.2 avg.) and seven touchdowns.  In his final season there, the Southeastern Conference coaches recognized him with first-team All-SEC honors.
• After declaring for the draft with a year of NCAA eligibility remaining, he gained notoriety at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, where he finished first among the tight ends in the 40-yard dash (4.49), vertical jump (41 inches) and broad jump (10 feet, 3 inches).  

TITANS TIDBITS: 
• Cook’s 41-inch vertical leap at the 2009 NFL Scouting Combine earned 100 pairs of cleats for his former high school, North Gwinnett (Ga.). Combine sponsor Under Armour Inc. offered to buy 100 new cleats for the high school alma mater of any participant who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds, posted a 41-inch vertical or higher or did the 20-yard shuttle drill in 3.85 seconds or faster.
• His older brother, Jason, played fullback at Ole Miss from 2005-08. Jason was signed by the Baltimore Ravens as a rookie free agent in May 2009.
• On the back of his cleats, Cook writes the initials A.C. and D.R.  The letters represent Ammon Craine, one of Cooke’s best friends who died tragically from drowning during high school, and Dennis Roland, his high school coach and mentor who died from thyroid cancer in January 2008.

• As a sophomore (2007), moved permanently to tight end and appeared in 12 games with three starts.  Ranked third on squad with 30 receptions for 421 yards (second on team).  His 14.0-yard receiving average was highest for any player on team with more than two receptions.
• As a redshirt freshman (2006), split season between tight end and wide receiver. Saw action in 12 games and caught six passes for 113 yards, an average of 18.8 yards per catch.
