Former Minnesota Vikings running back, Dalvin Cook, and his newish team, the New York Jets, have mutually agreed to part ways on Tuesday, after the 28-year-old got just 67 carries this season.

According to Tom Pelissero (NFL Network), who got his information from Cook’s agent, Dalvin wants to jump on the bandwagon of a playoff team so he can make a run at a Super Bowl.

To be honest, both Dalvin Cook and the Vikings would have been better off this season had they found a way to stay together. Cook got $7 million from the Jets, a number Minnesota probably wasn’t going to give him.

But knowing what we know now, they probably would’ve been better off paying him and letting Mattison walk. That’s not how things unfolded, though. Now, the Vikings are unlikely to make the playoffs and Cook is trying to find his third team in less than 12 months.
