Raiders could get next visit from Jared Cook

Jared Cook’s free agent tour could also include a stop in Oakland, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

The veteran tight end left a visit in Seattle Tuesday for a visit with the Vikings. The report said the Raiders have interest and plan to host Cook on a visit if he doesn’t sign with the Vikings before leaving Minnesota.

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is coming off a career season, and pairing him with Cook would give an added dimension to a Vikings offense that has some question marks and will have some new faces in next season’s lineup.

Cook, who turns 30 next month, caught 30 passes last season for the Packers, but he won’t be back in Green Bay after the Packers signed Martellus Bennett. Cook came to Green Bay after three seasons with the Rams and has 17 career touchdown receptions.

    I’m just glad they didnt get Bennett. They are going to be tough enough this year without that.

    As a close friend of the organization, I’m told he would rather be a professional bowler than go to a team with no city.

    In spite of his agent, I wish Jared well!

    Wow…. If he signs with the Raiders, wow! They already have a lot of offensive weapons. Add Cook to that and they will be even better!

    Indeed. Hey Jared, have a seat next to Zimmer and let’s go over some packer film.

    Every Raiders game I watched it seemed like they had 5 or 6 dropped passes. Lots of times Carr was able to overcome those mistakes and make enough great throws to win the game anyway. Imagine how good they’d be if they had guys who could catch the darn football. So if this guy can catch, sign him up.

    The Vikings could have Kellen Winslow and Shannon Sharpe as their two tight ends and it wouldn’t matter because they’d still be stuck with Brad Samford or whatever his name is at quarterback.

    Eagles fans say the same thing. Just catch the damn ball

    Jills fan showing total ignorance for a change? What are the odds? But, I suppose when your team is the laughing stock of the league with the longest playoff drought you have nothing better to do than troll.

    Doesn’t this guy drop a lot of passes, because we don’t need that!

  11. randytheraiderloveboy says: Mar 14, 2017 10:03 PM

    Oh gosh, this would be so super if we could get him!

    Raider men, I am having a draft party in my hot tub in the bay area. Cheese, fine wine, bad boy action films on my second tv. Please come join me to watch our new, fast and muscular Raiders become part of our family!!!

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO REGGGGGGGGGGGIIIIIIEEE!

    too bad Rudolph the white nosed Clutch dropper did just that at clutch moments(through out his career) dropped passes for easy touchdowns and with a whisper he goes down in a heap. Once Rudolph can catch the winning touchdowns and not drop them yeah will be a great part of the game, until then one more season like that and get rid of him…

    Id like this because of the dual threat.

  14. dreadnok89 says: Mar 14, 2017 10:43 PM

    is something wromg with this guy? he bounces around alot and so does bennet

  15. mrclutch5569 says: Mar 14, 2017 10:44 PM

    No only does he drop passes but he can’t block to save his life. The ultimate workout warrior… Only reason he still gets gigs

  16. drummer1279 says: Mar 14, 2017 10:48 PM

    I’d pass on him. It sounds like he want’s too much for his limited production. We have Walford, Lee and Holmes, whom the staff was big on before getting hurt, and being out all season. Besides, we can draft a TE or get one on the cheap.

    No need to spend big on offense, put the money where it is needed, on that defense. Hankins or Hightower on defense would be preferred. Add the rest through the draft.
