Quick thoughts on Raiders signing TE Jared Cook

A question for Raider Nation: What’s the most memorable moment in Jared Cook’s career? Was it the catch back in last season’s playoffs to beat the Dallas Cowboys? Or his first game as a Ram, where he recorded one of his career-best games, 141 yards with two touchdowns against the Arizona Cardinals? Regardless of the time, the one question that many fans have is, “What can the Oakland Raiders expect?”

Will Cook live up to expectations for the Raiders?

Cook entered the NFL in 2008, and his coaches have raved about how fast he is and how much potential he has, but all of that potential has yet to materialize.

With all those moments that were mentioned coming years apart and scarcely, with that in mind, Cook’s signing could mean the beginning of something special for Cook.

General manager Reggie McKenzie has once again signed a player with unfulfilled potential who will benefit from a change of scenery. Oh, and it helps to have an MVP-caliber quarterback in Derek Carr and Pro Bowl wide receivers around him in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.

Cook might not be the tight end you need to develop a defensive game plan around, but with the aforementioned supporting cast, Cook might become the dangerous weapon he was meant to be.
