When tight end Jared Cook arrived in Oakland for a free-agent visit, the Raiders had plenty of selling points to lure him onto the team with a dynamic offense on an up-and-coming franchise. A film session with quarterback Derek Carr proved to be the final straw to get Cook to sign a two-year deal with the Raiders on Thursday. Cook helps upgrade a position group that already includes Clive Walford and Lee Smith as the Raiders look to build on last season's 12-4 record that ended a 13-year playoff drought.

The Jacksonville Jaguars made another huge splash in free agency Thursday, signing three starters expected to make a decent defense dynamic. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the Jaguars won't announce any moves until players formally sign Friday.
