The Raiders addressed their apparent void at tight end this week by adding eight-year veteran Jared Cook, most formerly of the Packers. Cook will now join his fourth team after stints in Tennessee, St. Louis and his one year with Green Bay in 2016. This move has some dynasty ramifications, so let’s go through the players affected by the signing.
Jared Cook, TE OAK
The 29-year old Cook will look to build on a solid playoff run with Green Bay that saw him post 18 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns in just three playoff games. Considering he posted just 30 catches for 377 yards and one touchdown in the regular season, that late season eruption is worth noting. The bigger question is if the light has suddenly turned on for Cook or if he was simply the beneficiary of playing with a ridiculously hot Aaron Rodgers.
