    According to Ian Rapoport the tight end has been spotted in Green Bay and will sign with the Packers.

    You beat me to it!

    I like how Ian Rapoport started the tweet, "The #Packers are on the board".

    A signing at our weakest position isn't a bad thing

    I do find it funny that Rapaport tweeted about the Jared Cook signing exactly four minutes after Rob Demovsky tweeted his new article "The Unknown Tight End: What can Kennard Backman give the Packers?"

    If Cook signs, one less need in the first 4 rounds of the draft. Will be fun to see what Cook can do on a good team, with a FHOF QB.

    Now if we hear that Karlos Dansby is on his way to GB.....we can move on to the draft.

    Good signing from what is left, I've been a Cook fan at the right price for sure....in the end TT is going to fill a need, potentially for the future moving forward should he regain some tread on his tires some were saying had serious skill.

    (Dansby on a 1 year small contract is only other thing I am fine with us entertaining)

    I've re-read the thread, and nobody has said "for the right price", so I guess it's up to me. :)

    Rob always a dollar short and a day late. I'm guessing Jared Cook finally broke down and took a deal that TT wanted. I said it in a thread a few weeks back but when the money starts to dry up and guys start getting desperate for a job, these are the results. Can't wait to see what Cook can do for this offense.

    Apparently the deal was reached last Thursday (God I love Ted LMAO), and Cook has already had talks with QB1.

    Is this our big SURPRISE!?!?!?! Lol I'll take it. Still got plenty in the tank I think. I believe this could let Backman develop this year into a role his 3rd year

    TT will still draft a TE. Just probably in Rounds 5-7. That pick will probably be some tweener guy we've never heard of or someone who had a great combine workout. I expect an open competition in August.

    that is a sweet bit of news
    he doesn't even need to be all that good
    just the potential for him to make those explosive plays downfield will keep defenses honest

    Cook and Rodgers are locks to make the team. The remaining positions on the roster, how many that end up being, will be up for grabs.

    Cook will have to make some plays though to keep defenses honest.

    Something I noticed in the ESPN article is it says he "opted" to join GB over Carolina and Atlanta.. I LIKE THAT!!!!! Somebody who wants to be somewhere could lead to good things.

    Needs to clean up the drops because that will put him in the doghouse real quick. He's been relatively healthy hasn't he?

    Best line I've seen yet;
    "Ted went to Jared".

    Good signing. Cook has real deal speed and size at the position and hes never had a QB like Rodgers throwing to him.

    Yeah, Cook has been mostly healthy as he has only missed a total of five games over his seven-year career in the NFL.

    Which I'm surprised he didn't have more "injuries" with some of the QB woes he dealt with lol!
