Jared Cook Celebrity Life
The 33-year-old Jared Alan Cook is a pro-American football player who rose to stardom through his hard work and passion for the game.
Born in Birmingham, Alabama, he was enrolled in the North Gwinnett High School in Georgia where he pursued his passion for football playing wide receiver.
Besides football, Cook excelled in the sports of basketball and even competed in high jump events. On completion of high school, Cook was admitted to the University of South Carolina.
It was during this time that he started playing college football thinking of making it a career as he garnered various awards and appreciations during his play during college days.
He was one of the semifinalists for the Mackey Award, earned second-team honors and first-team recognitions securing a permanent place as a tight end player.
His statistics on the number of receptions, yards, and touchdown was worth noting.
It was in the year 2009 that Cook got his first big career break entering the NFL draft. He was picked by the Tennessee Titan in the third round of the draft signing a four-year contract with them in the latter half of the year.
It was with immense efforts that Cook finished his rookie season with commendable numbers.
He was even ranked the fourth-best tight end player. This helped Jared Cook star in all 16 games of the second season which he completed with good statistics.
Though Cook wished and worked hard to be the second tight end he was made to be the third tight end during the start of the 2010 season.
Our ambitions grow high as we achieve bigger feats in life and Jared Cook was no different. He wanted to become a wide receiver (a hefty pay is a sure guarantee here) which was not well-received by the Titans and hence, the contract was not renewed.
He also set a record for the most receiving yards by a tight end and climbed to the fifth position in the NFL. But his stats slowly fell down by 2015 and he did not succeed in getting his contract renewed by the Rams.
In 2016, Cook signed a one-year contract with Green Bay Packers for a huge sum and sure incentives given that he played his game well.
Cook did not disappoint the packers as he set up the game-winning field goal with just three seconds to spare.
This was extremely amazing and the audience fell in love with this passionate football player who became the second tight end player in the history of Packers to record a 100-yard receiving game.
He also ranked 11th among all tight end players in the same year.
After the 2016 season, Cook was once again free to choose any team and he did meet with many other teams such as the Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders, and Minnesota Vikings but signed a two-year contract with the Oakland Raiders finally in 2017.
He was proud of starting every single game for the first time in his entire career and finished fourth among tight ends in receiving average and in the year 2018 too he came fourth among tight ends in receiving average.
In 2019, he signed another two-year contract with a different team now-the New Orleans Saints.
Cook was named to the second Pro Bowl in 2019 after the first one in 2018. He has an overall rank of 222 and an overall score of 84 at the TE position.
