NFL training camp battles: Scaife, Cook battle at TE in Tennessee
The Tennessee Titans just cannot get rid of
Tennessee has one of the league's most unbalanced offenses, and hopes to see improved play from its receiving corps to help
Talking to the media, Tennessee's tight ends coach said of Scaife: "It would be good to see him be the go-to-guy, the first-down maker, the guy that keeps the chains moving ..." The coaching staff gave Cook no such endorsement, nor could they; he is not a possession-type receiver.
Cook may represent the future, but he is not yet the Titans' best option -- at least not this year -- and as the team tries to take pressure off of Johnson it will turn to its most proven players. Scaife has the ability to offer fantasy owners another 40-plus catch season, which would make him a viable No. 2 option in most leagues.
