Cook has signed a two-year deal with the Raiders, reportedly worth up to $12.2 million, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, the first year of the the soon-to-be 30-year-old's deal is fully guaranteed. Cook, who caught 30 passes (on 51 targets) for 377 yards and a TD in 10 games for the Packers in 2016, figures to have an opportunity to supplant Clive Walford as the Raiders' top pass-catching option at tight end. In any case, he'll provide QB Derek Carr with another weapon on offense to work in tandem with top wideouts Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.

Cooks is expected to visit with the Raiders, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

After walking away from trips to Seattle and Minnesota without a contract, Cook will visit with a team that has more of a need at tight end. Clive Walford served as Oakland's top option last season, catching 33 passes for 359 yards and three touchdowns on 52 targets in 15 games. If signed, Cook would presumably have a shot to push Walford for the No. 1 job during training camp.

Cook is expected to visit with the Vikings, unless he agrees to a contract during his Tuesday visit with the Seahawks , USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a return to Green Bay out of the question, Cooks is mostly weighing offers from franchises that already have established No. 1 tight ends. A team with a need for a starter could still enter the bidding, but it appears Cooks may end up settling for a No. 2 gig, despite finishing the 2016 season with a strong showing in the playoffs. The Packers appear set at tight end after signing both Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks.

Cook is expected to move on after one season with the Packers, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The decision to let Cook walk is one that likely doesn't endear itself to Aaron Rodgers, who connected with the tight end 18 times (on 32 targets) for 229 yards and two touchdowns during the Packers' three-game playoff run. On Thursday, Cook was garnering interest from the Bears, Lions, and Bills, landing spots that wouldn't be as enticing on the fantasy front. In any case, he'll he appears as if he'll be joining the fourth organization of his career in the near future.

Cook, an unrestricted free agent, is drawing interest from the Bears, Lions and Bills, FOX Sports of Mike Garafolo reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cook came on strong for Green Bay late in the 2016 season, but he may find that it wasn't enough to convince the Packers to keep him around. A return to Green Bay likely would position him for the No. 1 tight end role, whereas a move to Chicago, Detroit or Buffalo probably would drop him to No. 2 status.

Cook caught seven of 12 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-21 loss to the Falcons in the NFC championship game.

EDGE Analysis

Cook led his team in catches and targets while coming up just four yards short of Randall Cobb's high-water mark. His 1-yard touchdown was of the garbage time variety, as it came with 6:43 left and the Falcons leading 44-15. The 29-year-old tight end's late-season chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers should have owners excited for his second campaign in Green Bay come next year.

Cook secured six of 11 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-31 divisional-round victory over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran tight end turned in the catch of the season for the Packers with a 36-yard toe-tapping grab with three seconds remaining, setting up a game-winning 51-yard field goal by Mason Crosby that sent Green Bay to the conference championship. With Jordy Nelson (ribs) sidelined, Cook was Aaron Rodgers' most targeted pass catcher on the afternoon, and also notched his first touchdown of the postseason with a three-yard score early in the third quarter. With 11 receptions on 20 targets for 152 yards in two playoff games, Cook will undoubtedly be a key part of the Packers' gameplan in next Sunday's conference championship showdown against the Falcons.

Cook caught five passes for 48 yards in Sunday's wild-card victory over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Cook finished with fewer than 50 yards for the eighth time in 11 games this season, but he was targeted nine times Sunday, good for second on the team. He has an enticing matchup in next week's divisional round matchup as he and the Packers square off against a Cowboys team that allowed opposing tight ends to total 120 receptions and 1,206 yards during the regular season -- both the highest in the league.

Cook caught four passes for 56 yards in Sunday's victory over the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Cook made a number of plays in Sunday's contest and finished with his third best receiving total among the 10 regular-season games he appeared in in 2016. He heads into postseason play as the Packers' top receiving tight end, but he and Richard Rodgers are essentially splitting the snaps at the position, as Cook played 193 snaps, compared to Rodgers' 171, over the Packers' final six regular-season games.

Cook logged three receptions for 37 yards Saturday versus the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Absent Randall Cobb, the Packers' passing game largely lived through a triad of Jordy Nelson, Geronimo Allison and Davante Adams. While Cook still sat tied for fourth on the team in targets, only fellow tight end Richard Rodgers, Nelson and Adams were able to find the end zone. He'll look to end the season strong in Week 17 against a Lions defense that has surrendered the 17th-most passing yards per game in 2016.
