The Titans signed Delanie Walker to play tight end for them on Tuesday and the guy that Walker will be replacing has also found a new home.

Multiple reports agree that Cook will sign with the Rams. Reports just after the start of free agency indicated that the Rams and Dolphins were pitched in a battle to acquire Cook’s services and it appears that the Rams have won out.

At least the Dolphins have been through things like this before. Rams coach Jeff Fisher flirted heavily with the Dolphins last year before deciding to coach the Rams instead of the Dolphins. Unlike last year, the Dolphins can console themselves with the signings of wide receiver Mike Wallace and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe after missing out on Cook.

Cook provides a much needed target for quarterback Sam Bradford as he enters his fourth year as the Rams signal caller. The team still needs help on the outside, but Cook’s athleticism should allow the Rams to use him in a variety of ways offensively in 2013.
