The Rams parting ways with Cook is less of a surprise. He has had an inconsistent career and in 2015 he caught only 39 passes and failed to reach the end zone even once. Cook is not a complete tight end as he is more of a pass catching threat than a blocker, but he isn't even that good at pass catching anymore. I would be shocked if the Jaguars elect to take a look at the 28 year old Jared Cook as they already have a great pass catching threat in Julius Thomas.
Long is by far the most interesting player in terms of what he could bring to the Jaguars. He, like his former teammates Laurinaitis and Cook, has been on the decline as of late. He has missed almost half the games over the past two seasons and in that span has recorded only four sacks. Long, who is now 30 definitely appears to be past his prime, but he could be a valuable asset if he could be had at the right price. Prior to the injury bug catching up to him, Long was a highly productive defensive end. From 2011 to 2013 Long racked up 33 sacks, averaging 11 sacks per season in that span. Could Long be a pass rush option for the Jags? Maybe, but only at the right price. In my opinion the Jaguars would be much better off bringing back Ryan Davis, getting Sen’Derrick and Dante ready for the season, and bringing in a couple of other pass rushers that are not so long in the tooth as the aging Chris Long.
