Dalvin Cook’s agent has nothing but good things to say about idea of RB joining Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins continue to be linked to veteran running back Dalvin Cook, and the rumors are showing no signs of slowing down.

In fact, Cook’s camp seems perfectly happy with letting the buzz continue, and the running back’s agent may have even poured some gasoline on the fire during a recent media appearance.

Zac Hiller, who represents Cook and a handful of other NFL players, had nothing but good things to say after being asked about the idea of the 27-year-old joining the Dolphins.

“He’s looking for a team that’s in the win-now mode and wants to go all the way, wants to win a Super Bowl,” Hiller said after being asked about the chances of Cook joining the Dolphins. “Playing in South Florida, he’s definitely put up some pretty great numbers every time he seems to play in the state of Florida and then even in that stadium in particular. He did definitely miss out on the experience of playing for his hometown team when it came to college, and I know he always kinda felt like that was where he was supposed to play, so that definitely has been in the back of his mind his entire football career.”

Cook is one of the top players available in the NFL world right now. He has earned Pro Bowl honors in four straight seasons and seems to have plenty left to offer despite being released by the Minnesota Vikings earlier this month.

In the 2022 season, Cook totaled 1,173 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns. In the air, he added 39 receptions for 295 yards and two scores.

Since the beginning of the 2019 season, the former second-round pick has racked up 5,024 rushing yards and 43 rushing touchdowns, giving him averages of 1,256 rushing yards and 10.8 touchdowns per season during that four-year span.

Cook has generally been a pretty efficient back throughout his career, averaging 4.7 yards per carry since coming into the league. It’s worth noting, however, that his average was just 4.4 yards per carry last season — still a respectable number, but slightly below last season’s league average of 4.5.

One can only speculate about what type of numbers the Miami native would produce behind a Dolphins offensive line that is a bit of a question mark heading into the 2023 campaign.

With the regular season inching closer, more clarity on Cook’s future will likely become available soon.
