Tight end Jared Cook will sign a deal to join the Green Bay Packers, sources told ESPN.
Cook is in Green Bay taking a physical before the deal will be official, a source told ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky.
The Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons and Chicago Bears also had interest in the 28-year-old, sources told ESPN, but he opted to join Green Bay and its offense led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Cook finished #28 in 2015 (PPR), but in the four prior seasons, he posted an average ranking of 16.3. He ran a 4.49 40-yard dash at the combine back in 2009 and while he’s probably lost a step along the way, he can still threaten the seam better than Richard Rodgers. It’s not inconceivable that he turns into a fantasy starter, but the position is deep this year and unless he vastly outplays Rodgers, he’s more likely to form a committee with the third-year tight end.
