Dalvin Cook has played his entire NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings — but according to executives around the league, that might not be the case for much longer.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler recently reported on SportsCenter that Cook's status in Minnesota is tenuous, and a potential trade to the Miami Dolphins could come to fruition before the start of the 2023 campaign.

“I'm told Dalvin Cook is down in South Florida working out. He's cleared off that torn labrum that had surgery this offseason. So, he's good to go, and he's sort of awaiting his fate,” Fowler said.

“I'm told the Vikings are willing to hold onto his $14 million cap hit for now until they figure out what to do. They want to do right by the player but teams I've talked to believe that he'll be in a new uniform via trade or release. And there should be a market for his services. Now, I'm told that he loves Minnesota but he's open to a fresh start, and Miami could be an intriguing option. They've been linked to Cook in recent months.”

Cook was linked to the Dolphins close to the NFL Draft, but obviously no trigger was pulled at that time. The Dolphins are already deep at running back, drafting Texas A&M's De'Von Achane to complement Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr. and Myles Gaskin.

Still, none of those players are explosive as Cook, or have the resume of the 27-year-old.

He is a four-time Pro Bowler with over 1,100 rushing yards in each of the last four NFL seasons. Although he was hindered by shoulder surgery in the offseason, he played all 17 games for the Vikings last season, and is expected to be healthy for training camp.

If Dalvin Cook does end up leaving Minnesota, whether to Miami or elsewhere, the team does have a dependable replacement in Alexander Mattison.

Only time will tell if the Florida native will be back to his home state when the 2023 season kicks off.
