When Derrick Henry signed his four-year, $50 million extension with the Tennessee Titans, which included $25.5 million in guarantees, his biggest fan was likely Dalvin Cook.
The Minnesota Vikings running back is entering a contract year, which means huge numbers are coming for him to get the deal he wants next offseason.
He is definitely thinking about it, because the latest look at him show his body looked shredded like never before.
After missing 17 contests in his first two years, Cook only missed two games during the previous term and could’ve played through his clavicle injury late in the season.
Cook can choose to sit out the 2020 campaign, but he would miss out on a season of service and take a huge risk with an uncertain 2021 salary cap as a restricted free agent.
In the 2019 season, Cook finished with 1,135 rushing yards and 13 rushing touchdowns to go along with 53 receptions for 519 receiving yards in 14 games.
