The much-ballyhooed free agency of NFL running back Dalvin Cook could soon be at an end. And all signs are pointing to the New York Jets after Cook’s recent visit with the franchise.
“I think they’re pretty high,” Cook said about the chances of him signing with the Jets on the Friday episode of Good Morning Football.
“I think we’re in the position of a team that’s building something special, and I want to be part of something special as a player. And I want to add to whatever they got going on. I think the possibility is high, right now, of getting things done.”
Cook, who turns 28 in early August, cited the addition of Aaron Rodgers and the win-now mentality of the Jets as reasons for his impending decision.
“Like you said, A-Rod. It’s a unique situation because I think they’re building something special over there,” Cook said. “When you look at it, you always want to be around a great QB, you always want to be around somebody you can pick his brain and just learn from. A-Rod is a four-time MVP. So, just being around a guy like that you can learn a lot more and just develop as a player. That’s what I’m looking to do.”
Cook and the Jets, however, have yet to reach an official contract agreement.
