Jared Cook leads Raiders’ improved tight-end corpsThe Raiders have not often been able to cover them in Jack Del Rio’s two years as head coach, so they grabbed one off the free-agent market.The tight ends have been the stars of training camp, with Derek Carr often throwing to his new 6-foot-5, 254-pound target; Lee Smith, Clive Walford and Gabe Holmes have looked very good as well.Walford, the team’s third-round pick in 2015, was involved in an ATV accident last offseason and was not quite right in 2016.Cook was available on the free-agent market longer than the Raiders anticipated, and though he wasn’t on the original wish list, they quickly put him on it.After missing six games with an ankle injury last season, Cook led the Packers in the playoffs with 18 catches and 229 yards (with two touchdowns) in three games.Cook has compared Carr to Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers when it comes to ball placement and grasp of an offense, but the Raiders’ tight- end class might be unique.Last season, Walford said he was fine, but now says the knee injury affected his cut-making ability and in the back of his mind, he knew his knee wasn’t as strong as it had been in the past.New offensive coordinator Todd Downing has pledged to attack the field with the pass this season.Smith, a honorary offensive lineman, even caught a deep pass over the middle this week at training camp.When you are a matchup nightmare, you make a lot of plays, you make a lot of money and you stay in the league a long time.
