Struggles in 2023

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-20

Cook finished the year with 62 carries for 204 yards and no touchdowns while adding 12 catches for 52 yards on 17 targets, including the postseason.

The veteran began the year with the Jets before mutually parting ways with Gang Green in time to sign with a playoff contender. Cook latched on with the Ravens and was saw some action in the Division Round win over the Texans with eight carries for 23 yards. Unfortunately, this was the worst season of the 28-year-old's career by any metric. Cook was on a one-year deal and it does not appear likely that Baltimore will re-sign him, so the veteran projects to hit the market as an aging running back coming off of a tough year. He figures to land somewhere in free agency, but the days of Cook garnering a long-term deal are likely behind him.

Signed to 53-man roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-18

The Ravens officially signed Cook to their 53-man roster Thursday.

Cook is thus slated to make his debut with the Ravens in Saturday's divisional round playoff game against the Texans. It remains to be seen what sort of role he'll see initially with Gus Edwards and Justice Hill also in the team's backfield mix, but according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN, coach John Harbaugh noted last week that he viewed Cook as a "potentially very valuable weapon" heading into Baltimore's postseason run.

To suit up vs. Texans

The Ravens are in line to promote Cook from the practice squad Thursday, positioning him to suit up for Saturday's divisional playoff matchup against Houston, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Baltimore should officially announce Cook's addition to the 53-man roster shortly. The transaction comes following the team's decision to waive Melvin Gordon on Wednesday, meaning Cook is primed to suit up alongside Gus Edwards and Justice Hill in the Ravens' backfield during Saturday's divisional round matchup. Cook struggled across 15 regular-season appearances with the Jets, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry without a single touchdown, but it's possible a chance of scenery could revitalize him for the postseason.

Could get opportunity in playoffs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-12

Cook -- who is currently on Baltimore's practice squad -- is likely to get an opportunity in the playoffs, as the Ravens are dissatisfied in the current state of their running back room, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Gus Edwards, Justice Hill and Melvin Gordon have posted underwhelming numbers recently, averaging a combined 4.0 yards per carry in recent games. Edwards has also fumbled in each of the last two games, and Gordon added to his extensive history of fumbling in Baltimore's regular-season finale. The situation is ripe for Cook to take on a larger role in the postseason, but whether he can take advantage of that opportunity is a different matter, as Cook averaged a paltry 3.2 yards per carry without a touchdown in 15 appearances for the Jets prior to being waived and eventually winding up on Baltimore's practice squad.

Officially on Ravens practice squad

Cook signed with Baltimore's practice squad Friday.

Cook's signing was made official one day after his agency announced that he was headed to Baltimore's practice squad. The veteran running back played 15 games with the Jets prior to being waived and going unclaimed. He was putrid in New York, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry and failing to score a touchdown, but if the change of scenery revitalizes the four-time 1,000-yard rusher, Cook could contribute in the postseason by joining a backfield that's currently comprised of Gus Edwards, Justice Hill and Melvin Gordon.

Cook's agency announced Thursday that the running back will sign with the Ravens ahead of the postseason, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Parting ways with New York

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-02

The Jets and Cook mutually agreed to part ways Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Since the NFL trade deadline has already passed, Cook is subject to waivers. Assuming he does clear, Cook will try to find a contender to close out the season with after his 16 games in New York produced below-average results. After opening the year in a 1A/1B timeshare with Breece Hall, Cook has tumbled down the depth chart behind both Cook and rookie Israel Abanikanda. Cook was active last Thursday night against the Browns but played zero snaps. He finishes his Jets tenure with 67 carries for 214 yards (3.2 YPC) and zero touchdowns, adding 15 catches for 78 scoreless yards on 20 targets. Cook has looked out of juice at 28 years old, but perhaps a change of scenery with better blocking will rejuvenate him.

No touches in Thursday's loss

Cook didn't have a carry or target in Thursday's 37-20 loss to the Browns.

Cook went without a touch for a second consecutive game, as Israel Abanikanda (six touches) worked as the backup to Breece Hall (22 touches). Cook will likely be a minor part of the game plan at best when the Jets wrap up their season Week 18 at New England.

Loses backup job to Abanikanda

Cook didn't have a carry or target in Sunday's 30-28 win over the Commanders.

Breece Hall turned 32 touches into 191 scrimmage yards and Israel Abanikanda rushed nine times for 43 yards while Cook remained stapled to the bench. The 6-9 Jets will likely continue to rely primarily on the 22-year-old Hall and 21-year-old Abanikanda over the 28-year-old Cook down the stretch, especially since Cook's averaging just 3.2 yards per carry with New York.
