Raiders Camp Day 13 Play of the Day: Connor Cook, listed as No. 2 on the QB depth chart behind Derek Carr, but ahead of EJ Manuel, had his best practice of camp. Same with receiver Martavis Bryant, whose output was questioned by coach Jon Gruden over the weekend. So it only makes sense that Cook and Bryant hooked up on Wednesday. It was in team drills against the Lions when Bryant, lined up wide right, went across the middle and Cook hit him in stride in front of cornerback Darius Slay. Bryant bobbled the ball as he ran but hauled it in, put on the burners and turned upfield, running away from Slay for the 45-yard touchdown.
