Raiders ‘excited’ about experience, versatility of tight end group

The Silver & Black have a roster full of tight ends with unique skill sets. As the NFL continues to evolve, the tight end position has become an opportunity for offenses to gain a significant mismatch on defenses. The Patriots and Chiefs use this to their advantage every year, but it has been quite some time since the Silver & Black had a solid trio of tight ends. While there was optimism heading into last season that Jared Cook, Lee Smith, and Clive Walford could break that trend, Cook was the only one that made an impact on the Raiders offense. Perhaps, a large reason for that was the...

Raiders TE Jared Cook addresses NFL’s new anthem policy

Raiders tight end Jared Cook on Tuesday decried the NFL’s new rule requiring players on the field to stand for the national anthem. In 2016, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt during the anthem to protest social injustice issues. Under the policy adopted by the NFL last week, teams face fines if players do not stand for the anthem. Players can remain in the locker room if they do not want to stand. “The narrative has changed on what it was originally about,” Cook said after practice Tuesday. “It’s a real issue in this country. And it’s sad...

Jared Cook perfectly states ‘sad’ reaction to player protests, has idea for better solution

It’s a common tactic when someone simply doesn’t like what you’re doing to change the meaning behind it to fit their own purposes. That’s what has happened with the NFL player protests. From the beginning it was about protesting racial inequality and police brutality. The protest was to kneel during the National Anthem to raise awareness to the cause. Those who don’t like their cause or would seek to say they have no cause at all, quickly shifted the focus to that of disrespecting the flag and that of course leads to the accusation of disrespecting the military — none of which...
