‘Down, set, hike’ or call the play, but just to sit there and have a conversation with him, because Sam is a quiet guy ... is good,” he said. “It ain’t good for the both of us to be on the table, but it’s good having conversations with him, just to chat with him.”

Cook’s ACL tear is among a long list of season-ending injuries to top NFL players. Seeing the devastating injuries to those other players -- from Odell Beckham Jr. to Richard Sherman and J.J. Watt to fellow rookie Deshaun Watson -- provides meaningful perspective to the career he chose.

"It’s what we signed up for,” he said. “That’s something I had to realize laying in the bed. It’s part of the game. You’re going to get through it. Game’s going to be here. I’m young. I’m going to heal up. I’m going to be back out there with my team as soon as possible.”
It’s still too early to lay out a timetable for his return, but one thing Cook isn’t worried about is being able to come back with the same speed and skills that made him an early standout. He relies on the guidance Chris Doleman Authentic Jersey of his teammates, including Case Womens Mychal Rivera Jersey Keenum, Latavius Murray and Jeremiah Sirles -- all of whom have recovered from a torn ACL -- for insight on how to best approach his rehab and the mental aspect of overcoming a major injury.
“Truly, in my opinion, I just think I’m going to come back better than ever,” he said. “It’s all about how you attack this Eric Weems Jersey thing. I just feel like it was a blessing in disguise. I probably needed a break from the hits I was taking in college, something like that. I use all this stuff as motivation.”
None of the players receive any of those type of compensations, and if a guy that’s not suiting up can demand those type of things, then I feel like the players should be able to demand those type of things and make as much money as a guy that’s not playing in the NFL.
"Those things really bother me because this business wouldn’t operate without the players. I’ve been in this league for eight years and the only coach that I really seen understand that and abide by that has been Jim Harbaugh, when it comes to putting the players first.
"In regards to [Goodell’s] contract, I just don’t think that’s respectable, in regards to the players, and just a slap in the face just due to the job that we have. It just, it doesn’t make sense, just because he’s the commissioner that he gets to make that much money and it be guaranteed. No player in this league has that opportunity and I feel like we should."
"He wants guaranteed contracts. Think about the players and theirs also. He wants lifetime medical. Think about the players and theirs also. The jet, he can have that one. I couldn’t care less. I can fly Southwest or Delta. "Think about how hard the negotiation is. That’s my best thing for him. Taste that, I guess. Now that the rabbit’s got the gun, he’s the rabbit and the owners have the gun.
"I saw somebody said he probably shouldn’t make no higher than the highest-paid player. I think that’s pretty fair. I know owners can just tip him a half-a-million apiece and it’d still be frickin’ amazing. But he’s running a business, he’s a CEO, he’s making them millions, billions of dollars. So he can kind of access that salary, whether they pay him that salary or they Kendell Beckwith Youth jersey pay him in bonuses."
