If you are reading this and Dalvin Cook is still a Minnesota Viking, expect that to change by the end of the day. Whether he is traded or released, Cook’s time in Minnesota has come to an end and it is expected that the Miami Dolphins could have interest in the running back considering they almost traded for him a couple of months ago. Adding Cook would be a luxury for the Dolphins, but they have more pressing needs elsewhere on the roster. But whatever the case, expect to hear the Dolphins linked to Cook until the running back finds a new home.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
