Case Cookus has found a new home.

The Raiders signed the quarterback on Tuesday, giving them four at the position on the roster. Las Vegas waived DeShone Kizer last week, which brought them down to Marcus Mariota and Nathan Peterman behind Derek Carr.

Cookus most recently spent time with the Vikings when three of their four quarterbacks went on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Cookus has also spent time with the Giants and Broncos since going undrafted out of Northern Arizona last year.

As a corresponding roster move, the Raiders have waived receiver Trey Quinn with an injury designation. Quinn was the last pick of the 2018 draft. He spent his first two seasons with Washington, appearing in 15 games for the club with eight starts. He also appeared in one game for Jacksonville in 2020. Quinn has 35 career receptions for 273 yards with a pair of touchdowns.

  1. Case Cookus is the wind: inevitable, unstoppable, and seemingly out of nowhere. Don’t know anything about the guy but I really want him to land somewhere.

  2. Kizer was not with the Raiders, maybe this explains the difficulties this website has to properly cover the Raiders, apart from the obvious dislike it’s owner has for anything Raiders related.

  3. Cookus dodged a bullet by getting cut by our Vikings. At least the Raiders have some sort of championship pedigree.

  4. Sometimes you sign a guy for training camp, and he just makes it impossible to cut him. That’s exactly what happened when the Rams signed Kurt Warner years ago. The next thing you know there’s and injury, and that camp guy ends up playing. In Warner’s case, it ended in Canton, Ohio, but the beginning was just like this.
