Tight end Jared Cook visiting Seahawks on Tuesday

Tight end Jared Cook visiting Seahawks on Tuesday

Jared Cook, the seemingly lost member of the Green Bay Packers who was expected to re-sign with the team from Titletown, is now headed to Oakland to sign with the Raiders, per reports from various outlets this afternoon.

While health has never proven to be a strong point for Raiders new tight end Jared Cook, his mere presence on the roster adds a red zone dynamic that few teams can truly say they have in the NFL. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because a contract hasn't been signed.

Cook will turn 30-years old April 7, but has never started a full 16 games for any team in his nine National Football League seasons. 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.

Originally selected by the Tennessee Titans in the third-round of the 2009 NFL Draft out of South Carolina, Cook then spent his first four seasons in the "Music City".

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.

He caught 30 passes for 377 yards and one touchdown in 10 games in his only season with the Packers.

Despite not having prolific numbers last season, Cook was a major catalyst for Green Bay's offense.

The Raiders will have blocking tight end Lee Smith, and pass-catching tight end Clive Walford returning in 2017, giving the Silver and Black plenty of depth at the position.

The Vikings appear to be targeting Murray as the replacement for free agent running back Adrian Peterson.
