One of the most talked about free agents on the market this offseason has been around for a long time Vikings running back Dalvin Cook.
While the veteran has reportedly been offered multiple contracts since being released by Minnesota on June 8, one team remains at the forefront of discussions: the Dolphins. Although it was reported on June 27 that Miami had offered Cook a roster spot, ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported that Cook was in no rush to accept the offer.
“The one thing I would point out is that the Dolphins remain interested,” Darlington said, via Bleacher Report. “They still have an offer on the table, even if Cook doesn’t want to accept it. I can see he’s definitely trying to get some leverage, he’s still interested in joining the Dolphins. But at this point, again, not willing to commit to their agreement at the table.
Darlington noted that Cook is waiting closer to the start of training camp to make an official decision.
Cameron Wolfe on NFL Networkalso reported that Cook wants to get one of the top running back contracts in the league, so hitting the right contract amount could also cause a hold-up for the veteran.
