Oakland Raiders NFL Trade Rumors: Jared Cook Scheduled to Visit Raiders

Oakland Raiders NFL Trade Rumors: Jared Cook Scheduled to Visit Raiders

The latest player Reggie McKenzie has in his sights is tight end Jared Cook, who most recently was a member of the Green Bay Packers.

While the Vikings acknowledged that Cook left Winter Park, there was no such update on running back Latavius Murray's visit coming to an end. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because a contract hasn't been signed. He did, however, have a clutch sideline catch to set up the game-winning field goal in the Packers' divisional round matchup against the Cowboys.

The 29-year-old Cook has seen his receiving numbers go down over the past couple seasons, catching 30 passes for 377 yards and a touchdown in 10 games last season. Rapoport calls this a "huge addition", and apparently that means the type of player who had 30 catches for 377 yards past year.

Although he missed six games because of an ankle injury, he averaged 12.6 yards per catch and had three touchdowns in 13 games, including the playoffs.


The Raiders snapped a 14-year playoff drought in their second season under head coach Jack Del Rio, and should get a big boost on the offensive side of the ball with the addition of Cook.

Fantasy Impact After one season in Green Bay, Cook is expected to move on to the Raiders on an undisclosed deal.

Cook just finished his 8th season in the National Football League, and is generally good for around 40 or so catches per season. Mychal Rivera is now a free agent the team is not expected to sign him back.

Jared Cook was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the third round (89th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft.
