Where will Dalvin Cook land?

Dalvin Cook is available to sign with any team, at any time. It’s not likely to last very long.

Unlike other free agent options at running back, like Ezekiel Elliott and Kareem Hunt, Cook has plenty of tread on the tires. He also has a fully repaired shoulder, which will allow him to be 100% for the first time in a long time.

So where will Cook land? He continues to be linked with Miami, but the Dolphins have a crowded house. They may have a spending limit that they will not exceed.

The Jets are a viable destination, as it would strengthen a position currently left precarious by Breece Hall’s recovery from ACL surgery.

Bills were also mentioned. But consider this: Would Cook want to encroach on the territory of his brother, James?

The Broncos have been quietly interested in Cook for a while. General manager George Paton was working for the Vikings when Cook arrived six years ago.

The Cowboys also make a lot of sense. At a time when they leave the door open for Elliott, Cook would seem like a better complement between tackles at Tony Pollard and Deuce Vaughn.

And what about the possibility of the Raiders or Giants rescinding the franchise tag of Josh Jacobs or Saquon Barkley, respectively, and signing Cook? They could get it for less, and it could potentially be a better dollar-for-dollar deal.

There may be other interested teams. Cook can still work efficiently. Every team with some flexibility should consider whether Cook is a better option than the starting delay they currently have – especially if they can get him for less than they’re paying their current starter.
