Apparently, Cook hasn’t given up on the prospect of joining his younger brother James on the Buffalo Bills.
The former Minnesota Vikings star is still without a team, with training camp having started this week. And, speaking in an interview with Rich Eisen this week, revealed he has yet to receive a concrete offer from the two AFC teams reported to be interested in signing him. The RB hinted he might be considering a move to Buffalo instead as nothing serious has come from either the Dolphins or the New York Jets.
Claims of the Dolphins making an offer of two years for $8 million to Cook a few weeks ago have surfaced. The player’s camp is said to have thought the proposal “unserious” and didn’t give it any consideration.
The 27-year-old said joining the Bills was “not out of the picture” and the prospect of playing with his brother is exciting. However, he does not want to be “the one being in the way” of James’ potential.
James is expected to take over as the lead running back in the Bills setup in the upcoming season following Devin Singletary’s departure in free agency. Singletary is now with the Houston Texans.
The second-year RB rushed for 507 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie season. His involvement grew as the season wore on.
