NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport named the Miami Dolphins as a landing spot for Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook “Makes sense.”
Let’s get started!
“The Dolphins have been mentioned as a team that could be interested in Dalvin Cook,” Rapoport said on The Rich Eisen Show.
“They have the cap space, they have the need, and they have a young quarterback in Tua Tagovailoa who could use a running back like Cook.”
The Dolphins have over $20 million in cap space and are looking to upgrade their running game after finishing 29th in the NFL in rushing last season.
Cook would be a major upgrade over Myles Gaskin, who led the Dolphins with 673 rushing yards in 2022.
Cook is coming off a season in which he rushed for 1,155 yards and 6 touchdowns. He is entering the final year of his contract and is due to make $14.1 million in 2023.
The Vikings could look to trade Cook to save some money and get a draft pick in return.
The Dolphins would be a good fit for Cook because they have a young quarterback in Tagovailoa who is looking to take the next step in his development. Cook would give Tagovailoa a reliable running back who can help him win games.
The Dolphins are not the only team that has been mentioned as a potential landing spot for Cook. The New York Jets, Denver Broncos, and Arizona Cardinals have also been mentioned as possible destinations.
