Will Cook and Finley change the way teams use TE's?

Interesting blurb on how if the Titans try and franchise tag Cook, he says it should be as a WR, because he lined up most snaps as a WR, not inside like a typical TE. And the tag rules say youll be tagged as the position where you played majority of snaps. Franchise tag difference is huge between tagging a TE or tagging a WR. Also mentions how Finley was saying the same thing but got a new deal so he avoided any of this headache. If teams think they'll have to start paying tight ends like wide receivers, will they limit the number of snaps per game that they line up as a receiver?

It's the offseason, so fug off.

Valid point.

I remember Madden 10, the announcer often says "It's a wonder tight ends don't get drafted any higher. They have to be able to block like a lineman, and catch like a wide receiver."

Cook has a fair point. Hope he gets WR money if he did indeed take more snaps there.

He brings up a great point. He needs to get paid consistent with how he is being used instead of what he is being called. The CBA is on his side. If you are going to be franchised instead of getting a fair price in free agency. You at least should get paid the higher amount.
