The Green Bay Packers made a surprising and big offseason signing by bringing in Martellus Bennett from the Super Bowl 51 champion New England Patriots. With Bennett and Lance Kendricks on board, it wasn’t immediately clear if Jared Cook would be the odd man out in Green Bay, but that question has been answered with Cook going to the Oakland Raiders.
Cook’s deal with Oakland a is two-year, $12.2 million deal.
This is not quite the deal that Bennett got from Cook’s old team, but this is still a good deal for both the Raiders and Cook. The Raiders offense exploded with Derek Carr this past season, but giving the former Fresno State another big target should only help him in his progression.
Cook appeared in 10 games for the Packers in 2016-17, reeling in 30 receptions for 377 yards and one touchdown.
