Adam Caplan reports that the Rams have signed TE Jared Cook after all. (That news comes after a Jason La Canfora imposter "broke" the news on Twitter earlier in the afternoon.) Cook adds speed to the interior of the Rams' passing game, which could present a dangerous combo with 2nd-year WR Chris Givens. Cook had trouble learning the offense over 4 years in Tennessee, though. He also displayed inconsistent hands. Of course, Rams HC Jeff Fisher originally drafted Cook there. So he knows what he's getting. The talent boost can only help QB Sam Bradford, but the team still needs a reliable target to convert 3rd downs. TE Lance Kendricks is now staring at a much lower ceiling. He kinda brought that on himself, though, with a pair of uninspiring seasons to begin his career. Cook still looks like a fringe starting option in fantasy football leagues. His best shot at a value boost might be to claim the mantle of primary red-zone option for Bradford.
