The Detroit Lions will have another quarterback on their roster with Michigan ties. They signed former Michigan State QB Connor Cook to a reserve-future contract.
This comes a day after the Lions did not come to an agreement on a future contract with former University of Michigan QB Jake Rudock. The Lions still could still sign Rudock, but the Cook signing is not exactly what Rudock fans want to hear. Rudock will be a restricted free agent this offseason after spending all of 2018 on the Lions practice squad.
Cook, 25, was originally drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the fourth round of the 2016 draft. He has only appeared in one regular season game in his career. The 6-foot-4 quarterback also started the Raiders playoff game in the 2016 season which resulted in a 27-14 loss to the Houston Texans.
He has spent time with both the Carolina Panthers and most recently the Cincinnati Bengals in 2018.
In his career, he has 14 completions for 150-yards with one touchdown and one interception.
