Cook, a third-round pick of the Titans in 2009, bounced around the league a bit — playing for the Titans, Rams and Packers — before having a breakout season in 2018 with the Raiders, going for 896 yards and 6 touchdowns. He followed that up with a 705-yard, 9-TD season in 2019 and scored another 7 TDs last year before the Saints cut him free this offseason. He made back-to-back Pro Bowls in 2018 and 2019.
