$8M guaranteed in Year 1
The deal between the #Saints and FA TE Jared Cook will be signed today. It’s a 2-year contract worth $15.5M, including $8M fully guaranteed in Year 1. A big weapon for coach Sean Payton’s offense and a really nice payday for the 32-year-old. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: With the Raiders void of talent at the wide receiver position, Jared Cook turned in his best season as pro with 896 yards and 6 TDs in 2018. He now jumps to a better offense that featured Michael Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara in the passing game. Cook’s pairing with the ultra-accurate Drew Brees is a blessing and secures his value as a low-end TE1 heading into 2019.
