Seattle Seahawks to meet with former Green Bay TE Jared Cook

Seattle Seahawks to meet with former Green Bay TE Jared Cook

Today the Raiders added to their already potent offensive arsenal by adding tight end Jared Cook.

Reports suggest that he could meet with the Raiders if he doesn't sign with the Minnesota Vikings.

In 2016, the Oakland Raiders saw their best blocking tight end in Lee Smith go down with a season-ending injury immediately, their best athletic pass-catching threat Clive Walford plateau, and even regress, in some areas of his game and were forced to call upon (now) free agent TE Mychal Rivera to do the job.

Contract terms, according to NFL Media, were two years for $12.2 million. Rapoport calls this a "huge addition", and apparently that means the type of player who had 30 catches for 377 yards a year ago.

Instead of signing the guy who literally saved the Packers' postseason with that toe-tapping catch along the left sidelines in the Divisional Playoff game at Dallas in January, the Packers shunned him - mostly because he was asking too much. He caught 30 passes for 377 yards and a touchdown in 10 games with five starts for the Packers as he dealt with a high ankle sprain.




Packers GM Ted Thompson then turned around and signed not one, but two tight ends for the team in 2017 - Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks.

An eight-year veteran, Cook played four seasons with the Tennesee Titans and three with the St. Louis Rams before joining the Packers.

For his career, Cook has 303 receptions for 3,880 yards and 17 touchdowns. In fact, Cook's finest moments in his career came in the playoffs just last season with Green Bay.

For now, the Jared Cook free agency tour continues.
