Since it was revealed that the Minnesota Vikings would be releasing Dalvin Cook, there have only been a few teams linked with a potential move for the Pro Bowl running back.

Before the release even came, Cook seemed to indicate that he wanted to play for the Miami Dolphins with a picture he posted that showed him celebrating at their stadium.

Then the Denver Broncos joined the Dolphins as one of the favorites to land Cook.

Cook’s recent social media activity has some believing that he could be interested in heading to the New York Jets.

Today, he revealed that he feels he’d fit pretty well with one of these teams.

During an appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Cook said that he’d be a perfect fit for the Dolphins’ outside zone run scheme.

“… As a running back you look for a certain scheme and I know the scheme that I’m good in, and that’s outside zone, and that’s what the Miami Dolphins run,” Cook said via the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson. “So it’s like, you know, it’d be a perfect fit. And the roster, like you said, speaks for itself.”

The Miami Dolphins are already pretty dangerous on offense.

When Tua Tagovailoa was healthy last season, the combination of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle at receiver was an absolute nightmare for opposing defenses.

Bringing in Cook would just make that offense even more dangerous as one of the main things it lacks right now is a true bell cow back.

In an a loaded AFC East, the Dolphins are going to need all the help they can get to make it back to the playoffs in 2023.

That help should come in the form of Dalvin Cook.
