Dalvin Cook was waived by the Minnesota Vikings and entered NFL free agency with a bang. Rumors began to swirl immediately about the favorites to sign him and where would be the best fit, but headlines surrounding Cook have started to slow down. Overall, whoever signs Cook is going to get a dynamic running back who has been elite so far in his NFL career. The 28-year-old spent the first six seasons of his career with the Vikings, totaling 5,993 rushing yards in the meantime. His career got off to a slow start, but he broke out in his third campaign for 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns to go along with 53 receptions for 519 yards. He followed that up by rushing for a career-high 1,557 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2020, with a respectable 44 receptions for 361 yards. He hasn't eclipsed that rushing total since, but he still went over 1,000 yards in both of the last two seasons. Now a free agent, Dalvin Cook is most likely looking for a Super Bowl contending team to join where he can play a pivotal role.

There are three teams in particular that are predicted to be Super Bowl contenders without Dalvin Cook. Adding the former Vikings running back would add a dynamic element to their offense, as he would immediately become the RB1 on all three rosters. All three teams have serviceable running games as of now, but Cook would arguably make the running game the strength of each offense. Even if these teams can't make a run at him, it would be prudent to bring him in for a visit in case they want to trade for him later in the season. For Dalvin Cook's sake, he should want to sign with one of these three teams right away. Once he begins his NFL free agency visits, Dalvin Cook needs to check in with the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, and Philadelphia Eagles.

As soon as the news came out that Dalvin Cook was released by the Vikings, the Dolphins were mentioned as a favorite to land him right away. The Dolphins signing Dalvin Cook would make a lot of sense given the precautions they are destined to take this season. Mike McDaniel has a Super Bowl caliber roster, specifically on offense, and should be able to make a deep postseason run if the team stays healthy. With guys like Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, Raheem Mostert, and Jeff Wilson Jr, the talent runs deep on offense. However, none of this will matter if Tua Tagovailoa can't stay healthy. That is why bringing in a bell cow back like Dalvin Cook could do wonders.
