The Tennessee Titans have decided against franchising free agent tight end Jared Cook.

The Titans have said all off-season that Cook is a big part of their plans, but  the team apparently decided against placing the tag on Cook for fear that a grievance to be tagged as a wide receiver might fall in Cook's favor.

The tight end franchise number is $6.07 million, while the receiver tender is $10.54 million.
