Quietly, St. Louis Rams tight end Jared Cook broke a record that had stood for three decades.
With 51 receptions for 671 yards and five touchdowns during his first season in St. Louis after signing a five-year, $35.11 million contract last March, Cook broke the Rams single-season tight end yardage record.
It was previously held by Mike Barber, who had 657 yards in 1983.
Cook, 26, caught seven passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns at the start of the season to set a single-game receiving mark for the Rams.
In five NFL seasons, the former South Carolina standout has caught 182 career passes for 2,388 yards and 18 touchdowns.
