Jared Cook’s deal: $35.1 million

Tight end Jared Cook’s five-year deal with the Rams is valued at $35.1 million.
That’s a $7.02 million average per year. He could make up to $38.5 million in incentives as part of the deal.
Cook received $19 million in guarantees, which is 54 percent of the contract. The deal puts him among the five highest paid tight ends (average per year) in the NFL, at least for now.
The Titans planned to retain Cook with the franchise tag, but opted not to take on the looming fight with an arbitrator over whether he should be paid as a tight end or a receiver. The one-year deal would’ve ended up costing the Titans either $6.066 million (tight end) or $10.537 million (receiver) for one season.
The Titans on Tuesday agreed to a four-year contract with former 49ers tight end Delanie Walker. His deal averages $4.375 million per year.
