The Minnesota Vikings are expected to officially release running back Dalvin Cook on Friday, NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reported, per a source.
Seems like they intend to rely on their number 2 younger RB plus the rookie they signed. There should be interested parties especially the Saints, Miami and maybe the Bills. Maybe also they needed to free up some money. Still a bit of an odd decision.Somewhat surprised by this. Who does Vikings think on their current depth chart is better than Cook?
Cook: 4th highest yards from scrimmage per game in the last 5 years & 4xPro-Bowler.
RB2 is Mattison. He was a cool cat here at BSU so I hope that he can fill DC's RB1 role.Seems like they intend to rely on their number 2 younger RB plus the rookie they signed.

Still only 27 and he had 13 TD's but his stats dropped ! Yards per carry dropped to a measly 4.5 yards ! I think its money and they thinlk his best days are over. Yes Denver could use him and they have loaded up in the off season especially on defense. The owners will be expecting a good season. Bears could also use him maybe.RB2 is Mattison.

Why get rid of DC though?! Money and age I guess. He also had surgery in Feb/March so maybe there is some question about that?
Crazy stat: he lead the NFL with 62 carries that were zero or minus yards.
As for landing spots, how about adding DEN to the list?
Dortch is small but he's pretty good. The bigger problem for the Cardinals is their defense, new inexperienced head coach and Murray. Watt retired and their roster doesn't have much depth. Be surprised if they didn't finish on the bottom of the NFC West. Looks like rebuild mode for them.Here's the terms of his contract:
He'll probably fit in real good if Tannehill can get him the ball. If not, it could be long season for the Titans & Tannehill would be benched in favor of Levis.
And with Hopkins gone, the Cardinals are left with Hollywood Brown, Rondale Moore & Greg Dortch as the starters. Hollywood is 5-9, both Moore & Dortch are 5-7 - all under 180 lbs.
