Jared Cook reportedly will sign with Raiders
Jared Cook’s free agent visit with the Oakland Raiders must have gone well, because the tight end will be signing with the team.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reports the news on Cook heading to the Raiders.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was involved in the free agent recruitment of Cook, which clearly paid off.
The Raiders will be Cook’s fourth NFL team. He previously was with the Titans, Rams, and then he spent last season in Green Bay, catching 30 passes for 377 yards and a touchdown.
The Packers turned to Martellus Bennett at tight end after negotiations with Cook broke down. Cook also received interest from the Vikings and Seahawks. He will be remembered fondly by Packers fans for this spectacular catch.
