Mike Munchak not interested in trading Jared Cook

Tennessee Titans tight end Jared Cook reportedly wants out of town, but coach Mike Munchak isn't about to make a move ahead of Thursday's extended NFL trading deadline.

"I am not going to comment on that. That is not my decision to make, but I don't see that happening, no," Munchak told The Tennessean on Monday. "I don't see why we would do that. I don't follow that. The agent is calling to stir the pot. This is not the time for those things."

Munchak doesn't vibe indecisive on this one.

Cook, in the final year of his rookie contract, isn't happy with how he's being used in the Titans' offense. He's tied for second on the team with 28 receptions, but he played on just 25 of Tennessee's 59 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Munchak isn't squatting on some master plan to squelch Cook's playing time. He called Cook "a big part of our team." The problem is the Titans' uneven offense, which is struggling to get the most out its players.

"We are all frustrated. I am frustrated, too. I hope everyone is frustrated," Munchak said. "I hope we all think we can do more, because we all can do more, every one of us, the coaching staff on down. We're 3-5, and that's not good enough. And that includes every one of us."
