Tony Gonzalez is this year's top free-agent tight end, but if he does come back to play in 2013, there's no intrigue as to where he'll land: He'll be with the Atlanta Falcons.
After Gonzo, Cook is the top player at his position, and given the right circumstances, he has the talent to become one of the most dangerous tight ends in the league.
At 25 years of age, Cook is still a bit raw in terms of route-running and run-blocking, but he's a player with enough athleticism and pure speed (4.50-second 40 at the 2009 combine) to be a tantalizing target for teams in need of a dynamic tight end.
The Kansas City Chiefs are one team that could try to land Cook. Adding him to a lineup that includes Dwayne Bowe, Jon Baldwin, Dexter McCluster and Tony Moeaki would give Alex Smith plenty of weapons to work with.
Chicago would also seem like a likely landing spot for Cook, as Jay Cutler hasn't had a top tight end to work with since joining the team back in 2009. Unfortunately, Chicago isn't in great shape financially, so it will be a surprise to see him end up with the Bears.
Cook will end up as a key cog in Chip Kelly's offense with the Philadelphia Eagles. Philly has the cap space to make a long-term deal, and the team has a big need at the tight end position. Cook's raw speed will be utilized properly with the Eagles in 2013.
