Saints TE Jared Cook has been better than the team expected, according to ESPN's Mike Triplett. HC Sean Payton has praised Cook's hands, catch radius, yards-after-catch ability and work ethic. “Anytime you’re in free agency, you gather as much information as you can. And then when the player arrives, there’s certain things you weren’t aware of that are good and maybe sometimes weren’t so good. In his case, it’s all positive,” Payton said. “He’s a tremendous worker, dedicated, I think someone who’s a true pro in every sense of the word. And I think he’s been a really good addition for us.” TEs coach Dan Campbell added that Cook and QB Drew Brees have quickly built a strong rapport. With question marks at WR behind Michael Thomas, there's room for Cook to finish 3rd on the 2019 Saints in targets (behind Thomas and RB Alvin Kamara).

The Saints are set to sign TE Jared Cook, according to NFL Network. No word yet on the terms of the deal. Cook is coming off the most productive season of his career, posting a 68-896-6 line in Oakland and finishing 5th among TEs in PPR points. He might not see another 101 targets this year behind target hog Michael Thomas in what's become a run-heavy Saints offense. But Cook could be even more efficient with his targets going from Derek Carr to Drew Brees. He looks like a rock-solid TE1 with top-5 upside.

Raiders TE Jared Cook has been seeing a lot of targets from QB Derek Carr in training camp, according to insider Vic Tafur. “When you add a guy like Jared Cook that runs a 4.3 or a 4.4 and he can outrun DBs on go-routes, (you) can throw him out wide and run different kinds of routes with him,” Carr said. “We can do that kind of stuff because he is that talented.” Cook has mostly disappointed through 8 NFL seasons, but he reminded us of his upside with 18 catches for 229 yards and 2 TDs in 3 playoff games with the Packers last year. Cook can't be trusted as a TE1 but is a fine flier at his 18th-round ADP.

The Raiders have signed TE Jared Cook, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cook has largely been a disappointment through his 8-year career, but he came up big for the Packers late last season and in the playoffs, totaling 31 catches, 408 yards and 2 TDs. He joins an Oakland offense that could use a 3rd option in the passing game behind WRs Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. Raiders TEs combined for 83 targets last year -- a number Cook should hit by himself in 2017. He'll be an intriguing TE2 targets in fantasy drafts this summer. TE Clive Walford's arrow is pointing down after a disappointing sophomore season.

Packers TE Jared Cook (chest) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play against the Bears on Sunday but is just a TE2 flier.
