Back in December, Raiders HC Jon Gruden told reporters that re-signing Cook is a “high priority” for them. However, with the Raiders signing Antonio Brown, Trent Brown, Lamarcus Joyner and Tyrell Williams, it’s unclear if they have the cap necessary to extend him.
Cook, 31, 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 back in 2016. Cook would later depart Green Bay in 2017 and agree to a two-year, $12.2 million contract with the Raiders.
He is testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2018, Cook played all 16 games for the Raiders and caught 68 passes for 896 yards receiving and six touchdowns.
