Rams’ Cook would “absolutely” do it all over again
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jared Cook said he’d “absolutely” repeat the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” gesture he and four teammates made during Sunday’s game.
Even if he’s receiving threats or it costs the St. Louis Rams some fans.
The tight end was designated spokesman Wednesday for the five-player group that made the gesture before Sunday’s win over Oakland. He explained it was not just a show of solidarity for Ferguson protesters but for peaceful demonstrations everywhere.
Asked in hindsight whether the group might have taken a different tack that wouldn’t have antagonized law enforcement officials, he answered: “We could have, absolutely. But would we? Absolutely not.”
