Trade Proposal Reunites Vikings with $7 Million Playmaker
The Minnesota Vikings find themselves a third of the way into the season without a viable running game,
and the situation has become more critical with star wide receiver Justin Jefferson sidelined due to a hamstring injury for several weeks.
With the NFL trade deadline approaching, the Vikings see this as a prime opportunity to bolster their backfield, potentially even by reuniting with a former Pro Bowler.
Dianna Russini, a reporter for The Athletic, disclosed on October 21 that the New York Jets are actively
seeking a trade for running back Dalvin Cook, who spent his first six seasons with the Vikings.
Russini reported, "Running back Dalvin Cook is... available, as his usage on this team has been decreasing."
Cook was the starting running back for the Vikings for five years and earned Pro Bowl recognition in each of his final four seasons with the team.
In September 2020, Minnesota signed Cook to a five-year, $63 million contract extension.
