  Lions | Detroit makes four moves    Mon Jun 10, 02:17 PM

Free-agent OL Luke Bowanko (Redskins) and QB David Fales (Dolphins) signed undisclosed contracts with the Detroit Lions on Monday, June 10. The Lions also waived QB Connor Cook and S David X. Jones to make room for them on the roster.

Footballguys view: Fales gives the team a camp arm...and apparently a better one than Cook. Tom Savage and Fales will compete in camp to win the backup job to Matthew Stafford in 2019.

  Lions | Connor Cook signed to Futures deal    Tue Jan 1, 01:22 PM

The Detroit Lions signed QB Connor Cook (Bengals) to a Reserve/Futures contract Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019.

Footballguys view: Originally a fourth-round pick of the Raiders in the 2016 NFL draft, Cook has bounced around the league to a few different teams. The Lions are just signing him as a camp arm and developmental prospect for the offseason. The chances of him making the 53-man roster in the fall are slim.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Christian Hackenberg was released from the practice squad Monday, Nov. 5. Additionally, free-agents QB Connor Cook (Panthers) and TE Andrew Vollert (Cardinals) were signed to the practice squad.

  Giants | Two skill players work out for Giants    Mon Oct 29, 05:15 PM

Free-agents QB Connor Cook (Panthers) and RB Akeem Hunt (Chiefs) worked out for the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: The Giants are just updating their emergency list here. A fourth-round pick of the Raiders in 2016, the team moved on from him in early September this year. He wound up with the Panthers for about a month after that until getting released from their practice squad about three weeks ago. Hunt is an all-purpose back who can work well as a runner in space or a receiver out of the backfield. He was originally picked up by the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2015.

  Panthers | Carolina signs Connor Cook    Thu Sep 6, 03:02 PM

Free-agent QB Connor Cook (Raiders) was signed to the Carolina Panthers' practice squad Thursday, Sept. 6. DT Kendrick Norton was released in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Cook has ability, though he was never going to get a chance to show it in Oakland. The situation isn't much better in Carolina, but it's not a bad place for him to develop.

  Raiders | Oakland cuts down to 53 players    Sat Sep 1, 08:05 PM

Oakland Raiders OL Oday Aboushi, C James Stone and CB Shareece Wright were released Saturday, Sept. 1. WR Marcell Ateman, TE Marcus Baugh, WR Saeed Blacknall, TE Pharaoh Brown, RB James Butler, TE Paul Butler, LB Jason Cabinda, CB Jarell Carter, QB Connor Cook, LB James Cowser, CB Antwuan Davis, DT Connor Flagel, CB Antonio Hamilton, OG Cameron Hunt, OL Denver Kirkland, S Dallin Leavitt, S Quincy Mauger, CB Raysean Pringle, G Jordan Simmons, DL Shakir Soto, LB Azeem Victor, OT Jylan Ware, WR Isaac Whitney, DT Gabe Wright and FB Ryan Yurachek were waived.

Footballguys view: Ateman is a big receiver with great ball skills who should make a practice squad somewhere.

  Raiders | Connor Cook struggles in practice    Tue Aug 14, 12:15 AM

Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook made a few errors in practice Monday, Aug. 13, and he was pulled from the practice field by head coach Jon Gruden in favor of QB EJ Manuel. Cook and Manuel are battling for the No. 2 job behind QB Derek Carr. 'We're still figuring out who's the No. 2 quarterback,' Gruden said.

  Raiders | Connor Cook pushing for QB2 role    Sat Aug 11, 02:38 AM

Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook went 11-for-19 for 141 yards and a touchdown against the Detroit Lions on Friday, Aug. 10. QB EJ Manuel, who served as the backup last season, was 4-for-6 for 46 yards in the game.

Footballguys view: Cook made the most of his opportunity in the preseason opener. Manuel may be more athletic but he has never been an impressive passer. Cook has looked terrible when forced into playing time (during his rookie season) but is a developmental prospect the Raiders could trust as their primary backup to Derek Carr in 2018.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are missing two starters in the secondary and another top corner against the Bills. Tyrod Taylor could have a good day throwing the ball to his ragtag group of receivers and tight ends.

  Raiders | EJ Manuel eyeing backup role    Fri Jun 16, 09:50 PM

Oakland Raiders QB EJ Manuel has been receiving second-team reps ahead of QB Connor Cook.

Footballguys view: Manuel is a football junkie, has a big arm and the athleticism to keep plays alive with his feet. He failed to impress as a first-round pick for the Bills, but Manuel could put up a fight versus Cook.

  Raiders | Connor Cook implodes    Sat Jan 7, 09:03 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook completed 18 of his 45 passes for 161 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in a 27-14 loss to the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 7.

Footballguys view: Should anyone be surprised by this? Cook was a fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, and he came with plenty of question marks on and off the field. Making his first start in the playoffs was not going to end well....and it didn't.

  Raiders | Connor Cook prepping to start    Tue Jan 3, 10:11 AM

Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook is being groomed to start the wild-card playoff game against the Houston Texans with QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) expected to be out, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Good luck with that. Cook came in against the Broncos in Week 17, had one good throw and spent the rest of the time looking like a rookie. Against the Texans, it would be shocking to see Cook play at a high level.

  Raiders | Oakland starter unclear at this point    Mon Jan 2, 07:46 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) underwent an MRI and is sore, but head coach Jack Del Rio is unsure who will start between McGloin and QB Connor Cook in the wild-car round of the playoffs. 'Between Connor and Matt, we'll see who can get the most reps and who we feel the most comfortable putting in the game,' Del Rio said.

Footballguys view: McGloin was banged up against the Broncos and Cook had to take over in Week 17. A fourth-round pick from Michigan State, Cook made at least one good throw but too often he looked short, threw and interception and wasn't as accurate as he needed to be. If Cook starts in the playoffs, he would be the first QB in NFL history to earn his first career start in the postseason.

  Raiders | Matt McGloin will start Week 17    Mon Dec 26, 07:30 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin will start in Week 17, while QB Connor Cook will serve as the backup.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here with Derek Carr likely done for the year. McGloin was successful in college at Penn State, and he might be one of the best backup QBs in the league. We'll see what he can do against the Broncos fierce pass defense in Week 17.
