We waited a long time to get here, but it has finally happened. The Minnesota Vikings are releasing running back Dalvin Cook, who will have multiple suitors once he hits free agency, according to Tom Pelissero (NFL Network).

Cook met with Vikings general manager, Kwesi Adofo-Mensah last week but whatever was discussed that day was not enough to get Dalvin back into purple and gold.

According to Kevin Seifert (ESPN), the Vikings will continue to explore trade avenues for Cook Thursday, but if a deal can’t be reached, they will let him go on Friday.

The Vikings are expected to try to trade Cook one more time on Thursday, and if they are unable to, they plan to process his release Friday, according to a source. Either way, this will bring an end to Cook’s six-year tenure in Minnesota.
