Raiders Sign TE Jared Cook To Two-Year, $12.2M Deal

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Raiders are signing veteran TE Jared Cook to a contract.

  • According to Rapoport, Cook receives a two-year, $12.2 million contract with the first year fully guaranteed.

Cook was in talks with the Packers about returning to Green Bay before things broke down and Green Bay elected to sign Martellus Bennett instead. Since then, Cook visited with the Seahawks and Vikings, but it was clear that the Raiders could prove to be the best landing spot for him.

Cook, 29, is a former third-round pick by the Titans in the 2009 NFL Draft. He played out his rookie contract with Tennessee before signing a big-money deal with the Rams as a free agent back in 2013.

After he was released by the Rams, the Packers signed Cook to a one-year, $2.75 million last offseason.

In 2016, Cook appeared in 10 games for the Packers and recorded 30 receptions for 377 yards receiving, one touchdown, and lost one fumble. Pro Football Focus graded him as the No. 11 overall tight end out of 63 qualifying players.
