Soon-to-be free agent running back Dalvin Cook wasted little time letting the world know where his next destination might be following his release from the Minnesota Vikings (that’ll become official on Friday).
After hearing his name in trade rumors for months, Cook will be released by the Vikings on Friday. By cutting Cook, the Vikings will save $9 million in salary cap space.
Following the report of his pending release, Cook took to Instagram to hint on where he’s signing. Cook posted a photo of the Vikings’ Week 6 win on the road against the Miami Dolphins back in October of last year.
Perhaps this is Cook inning that he will be taking his talents to South Beach?
The Dolphins have long been viewed as a front-runner to land Cook, and he definitely is a fit there. Miami’s leading rusher of 2022 was 30-year-old Raheem Mostert, who had 891 rushing yards and three rushing scores.
The rest of Miami’s depth chart consists of trade deadline pickup Jeff Wilson Jr., Myles Gaskin and Devon Achane. But adding a four-time 1,000-yard rusher and four-time Pro Bowler in Cook, of course, could take Miami’s offense to another level.
