Rumors have been swirling around Dalvin Cook this NFL offseason as to whether the Vikings will trade or cut their star running back.
Head coach Kevin O’Connell certainly sounded like they were ready to move on from Cook earlier in the week.
There’s also been plenty of social media speculation that he’s done in Minnesota.
Now, a potential frontrunner in the AFC has emerged for Cook’s services, and it’s the Miami Dolphins.

If the Vikings can’t find someone else to pay him [$10.4 million] and if they won’t pay it themselves, Cook would be cut and then possibly signed by the Dolphins.
Via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald , Cook to the Dolphins is “ certainly a real possibility” if he’s cut.
A trade also would be possible if Cook would reduce his deal to something the Dolphins would accept, but why would he agree to do anything at this point? He should hold firm and, if necessary, force the Vikings to release him.
Dalvin Cook returning to his home state of Florida makes a ton of sense. Only 28 years old, Cook would step into a Dolphins offense that features Tua Tagavaloia, Tyreek Hill, and Jaylen Waddle.
Cook is a four-time Pro Bowler who has played his entire career with the Vikings since being drafted by them in 2017.
