Top 3 Potential destinations for Dalvin Cook

The once-promising season of the New York Jets evaporated in front of their eyes. Their choice to forgo an experienced backup after losing Aaron Rodgers on their opening offensive drive of the season consigned them to yet another season without a postseason appearance only made matters worse.

We now examine the three most likely destinations for the former Minnesota Vikings star, who has been given his release and may now sign with any team before the postseason.

#3. Kansas City Chiefs

Even though they aren't quite the offensive force they once were, the Kansas City Chiefs are still the defending Super Bowl winners and, unless they are shown differently, the team to beat.


Isiah Pacheco has performed admirably in the role of the featured back, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire will never be the superstar they anticipated. However, they ought to give that running back room in the back greater depth.


Although Jerick McKinnon will still be in charge of passing plays, the addition of Cook might offer them a serious threat in goal-line and red-zone scenarios, which is where they've had the most difficulty this season.


#2. Cleveland Browns

Nick Chubb was cut by the Cleveland Browns a few games into the season. For Kevin Stefanski's team, which has seen more injuries than any other team in the league, that was just the beginning of a pattern.


Stefanski has a lengthy history with Cook. Cook enjoyed his greatest years as an offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings, where he previously held the position.

The lead back for the Browns is Jerome Ford, while Kareem Hunt is in charge of changing the pace. Cook, of course, would be a better option for the tenacious Browns than either of them.

#1. Dallas Cowboys

Paradoxically, Dak Prescott has been the Dallas Cowboys' most effective offensive player thus far this year. That comes only months after they were thought to be the offense's weakest point and sole weakness.


But for Dallas, the running game has essentially been irrelevant. Tony Pollard hasn't been able to establish himself as a reliable lead back, either due to a lack of talent, play-calling issues, or an inadequate offensive line.


This seems like the Cowboys' finest opportunity in a long time to win a Super Bowl—they haven't done it in nearly thirty years. Nothing can be left to chance, and it seems obvious that Cook should be added.
