According to sources, NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reported on Thursday that running back Dalvin Cook is traveling to New York for a visit with the Jets this weekend. This comes after Cook’s release from Minnesota, and the Jets have been one of the clubs rumored to be interested in the four-time Pro Bowl running back. It makes sense for the Jets to pursue Cook since their top back, Breece Hall, is currently on the physically-unable-to-perform list due to an ACL tear. With the recent trade for Aaron Rodgers, the team seems to be fully committed to making a serious run.
The addition of Cook to the Jets team would provide them with a dependable and explosive runner, as well as take some pressure off of Hall when he returns from injury. This visit by Cook comes on the heels of Rodgers’ contract renegotiation, which freed up approximately $35 million and allowed the Jets to make moves to add more offensive weapons. Rodgers’ new two-year, $75 million guaranteed deal also lowered his cap number to less than $9 million.
It’s possible that Rodgers agreed to restructure his contract with the Jets with the expectation that the team would use the savings to improve their roster rather than just keep the money. One potential target for the team could be running back Dalvin Cook, who is known for his ability to run and make big plays as well as being a reliable receiver. Rodgers and Cook faced off regularly when Cook played for the Minnesota Vikings, so it remains to be seen if they will team up in New Jersey.
