Free-agent running back Dalvin Cook is slated to visit the New York Jets this weekend, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports.
The Jets are the latest team to show interest in Cook. The Miami Dolphins reportedly made an offer to the former Minnesota Vikings running back in June, and Cook had multiple other proposals on the table. He’s also in talks with the New England Patriots about setting up a potential visit, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports.
Jets head coach Robert Saleh left the door open to adding Cook when asked on July 20.
“Obviously, you never want to say no to a great player,” Saleh said, according to Pro Football Talk’s Myles Simmons. “I’ll leave (general manager Joe Douglas) to that one. I know there’s a lot of contractual stuff that goes with it. But he is a good one.”
Aaron Rodgers reportedly took a pay cut on his reworked contract Wednesday to give the Jets more financial flexibility.
If Cook signs with New York, he’d join a backfield that features Breece Hall and Michael Carter, among others. Hall is still working his way back from an ACL tear that prematurely ended his 2022 campaign.
The Vikings released Cook in June after a six-year run with the franchise. The 27-year-old has been one of the NFL’s most productive backs and eclipsed 1,100 yards in each of his last four seasons. He’s also made four consecutive Pro Bowls.
