  • Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Oakland Raiders tight end Jared Cook has been targeted often by quarterback Derek Carr during training camp. The Raiders signed Cook as free agent in March to help improve a tight end unit that ranked 29th in the NFL last season in yards per route run from tight ends at 1.05.
  • After posting a career low grade of 47.5 with the Rams in 2015, Cook took advantage of working with Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay and ranked as the 11th-best tight end in 2016 with an overall PFF grade of 81.0, his career high.
  • Cook’s 1.85 yards per route run last season ranked 10th of 34 tight ends who were targeted 40 or more times. He was very productive running routes from the slot, finishing second in slot yards per route run among tight ends who ran 50-plus routes from the slot at 2.23.
