Raiders look for more out of tight ends this season

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders showed off a new wrinkle in their offense on the opening drive of their second preseason game.

A passing game that had been predicated on getting the ball into the hands of the pair of 1,000-yard receivers on the outside in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree suddenly started using some big options in the middle of the field.

Derek Carr found free agent tight end Jared Cook on his first drop back of the game against the Los Angeles Rams for a 16-yard gain and then capped the drive by threading a 19-yard pass into the hands of blocking tight end Lee Smith for a touchdown.
