However, New York elected to sign Webb to their practice squad, so the odds of Cook ending up with the Jets aren’t very good right now.
The Raiders elected to overall their backup quarterbacks as they cut their roster down to 53 players and trade for A.J. McCarron, which led to Cook being waived.
Cook, 24, was taken by the Raiders in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $2.959 million contract and set to earn a base salary of $630,000 this season when the Raiders waived him coming out of the preseason.
In 2016, Cook appeared in one game and thrown for 150 yards while completing 14 of 21 passing attempts to go along with one touchdown and one interception.
