Ever since the Vikings released Dalvin Cook, the Dolphins have widely been considered favorites to pursue the Pro Bowl running back. Cook has only fueled the fire, from social media farewells in Hard Rock Stadium to publicly admitting he'd play for the franchise.
The only running back to rush for 1,000 yards in each of the last four seasons, Cook made his public pitch for the Dolphins to sign him. He wanted to play in the Dolphins' outside zone run scheme.
"As a running back you look for a certain scheme and I know the scheme that I'm good in, and that's outside zone, and that's what the Miami Dolphins run. So it's like, you know, it'd be a perfect fit," Cook said Thursday on Sirius XM NFL Radio, via the Miami Herald. "And the roster, like you said, speaks for itself."
Cook also admitted the Dolphins wouldn't be the only team he'd play for. He wants to be in the right situation at the end of the day.
"You know, a lot of people got me pegged going back home (to the Dolphins). A lot of people got me going to the Jets. It's all over the place right now, but what's gonna be important for me is just going to that right situation and helping somebody turn the page," Cook said.
