As teams across the NFL head into training camp, top free agent running back Dalvin Cook remains unsigned. But even though the Miami Dolphins have expressed continued interest in signing the veteran running back, it sounds like the team believes they’ll be alright even if he signs elsehwere.
During a recent interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Miami Dolphins general manager Chris Grier made it clear that while the team continues to pursue Dalvin Cook, they are also “very happy” with their current group of running backs.
“With those guys, we feel good that we have quality NFL players,” Grier said according to Pro Football Talk. “Dalvin is a tremendous athlete and football player and has been a productive player in this league. I think that’s why everyone’s looking at him. People would love him. Whether it works out with us or anyone, we’re just very happy with the group we have.”
While Cook remains unsigned, he did indicate that chances are “pretty high” that he ultimately decides to sign with the New York Jets but in the same interview he also reaffirmed his desire to play for his hometown in Miami.
It will certainly be interesting to see where Cook ultimately signs ahead of the season.
