Minnesota Vikings Rumors: 2 Favorites to Acquire Dalvin Cook

The Minnesota Vikings have made Dalvin Cook available. The star running back has been garnering interest from multiple teams, but two specific clubs have now emerged as frontrunners for his services - the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys.

The Jets have had a very aggressive offseason and are hoping to be a real threat in 2023 because of it. However, it is also clear that they could use a major boost at the running back position, and Cook would provide them with exactly that. Therefore, it appears that there could be a great match here on paper. 

The Cowboys, on the other hand, released fellow star running back Ezekiel Elliott this offseason. As a result, it is not particularly surprising that Cook is a player that is now on their radar. He would provide their offense with a much-needed jolt and simply make Dallas look like a stronger team heading into the upcoming season.

We will now need to wait and see if either of these clubs can successfully bring in Cook from here. Time will tell what happens on that front.
