Former Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook has been a free agent for over a month and reportedly has multiple contract offers from teams throughout the league – including one from the Miami Dolphins. But it does not sound like he’s going to make a decision on his future team anytime soon.
According to Jeff Darlington of ESPN, Dalvin Cook is not yet ready to make a free agency decision and plans to wait until closer to training camp.
“Nothing urgent right now in terms of Cook’s decision,” Darlington said on ESPN. “Because ultimately, he still wants to get a little bit closer to training camp to really nail this down.”

Darlington did say that even though Cook is not willing to accept the current Maimi Dolphins offer, he is “still interested” in Miami.
“One thing I’d like to point out is that the Miami Dolphins remain interested, they still have an offer on the table – one though, that Cook is not willing to accept,” Darlington said. “He is still interested in joining the Dolphins, but at this point – again, not willing to commit to the deal they have on the table.”
It’s a pretty big update, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it.

Tried telling ppl about this timeline two weeks ago…
Miami remains very much in play, but Dalvin hasn’t been willing to accept any offer he’s seen yet as he believes he’s worth more

This is fair, both sides want to find a good deal
I believe it’s a matter of when the deal happens rather then if https://t.co/nX54e1RLLC

It will certainly be interesting to see whether or not Cook ends up on the Dolphins after all this talk.
