Jared Cook found a place where he could dominate in New Orleans, just like he thought
 
1 Attachment(s)
When Jared Cook was a free agent thinking about the next play to call home this offseason, he might have envisioned plays like the one he made in the second quarter against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday in Nashville.

The New Orleans Saints lined up in an empty set, with Cook as one of three receivers to the right side of the formation and stars Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas lined up to the left.

The field was spaced out for quarterback Drew Brees, who started his progression read to the right, then swept back left for Cook on a crossing route. Brees’ throw hit Cook in rhythm beyond the first level of the Titans defense. The big tight end broke a tackle, then followed a block from Kamara all the way to the house for a 61-yard score.

“I feel like it’s something that we needed,” Cook said of his score, which helped the Saints turn around a game in which they trailed by 14 at one point. “… We needed a spark. Drew found me on the back side hash, and I was able to get in thanks to A.K.”

Something that was needed is sort of Cook’s theme this season.

The 61-yard touchdown was a dominant play, and those types of plays are what makes football fun for Cook. With that in mind, he had a lot of fun in Oakland last season putting up the best statistical year of his career, so it was paramount to keep that going.

“I just wanted to find a place that I had an opportunity to do the same thing: Go out there and be a dominant tight end and make plays,” Cook said. “And this was one of the places where I figured I could help most.”
