Cook will now join the Raiders' tandem of prolific wide receivers in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree as the aforementioned Carr has finally found an established presence at the tight end position. The Raiders have reportedly signed unrestricted free agent tight end Jared Cook to help aid up-and-coming quarterback Derek Carr's progression.
Contract terms, according to NFL Media, were two years for $12.2 million.
Or maybe it's the guy who has averaged 6 games started per season in his 8 year career (including 5 last year). His biggest play came on a 36-yard catch that set up a last-second, game-winning field goal in Green Bay's 34-31 playoff win over Dallas. Rapoport calls this a "huge addition", and apparently that means the type of player who had 30 catches for 377 yards a year ago.
The Seahawks' interest in adding another tight end to the roster likely stems from a number of questions now surrounding the key position.
Past year with the Green Bay Packers, Cook had 4 games in which he had only 1 catch and, in each of those games, he had a maximum of 15 yards. Or maybe it's the player with a single touchdown over the last two seasons.
He caught 30 passes for 377 yards and one touchdown in 10 games in his only season with the Packers.
Fantasy Impact After one season in Green Bay, Cook is expected to move on to the Raiders on an undisclosed deal.
The Raiders went into free agency with more glaring needs on defense but those have not been filled as of yet.
