Dalvin Cook immediately received interest from several NFL teams after being released by the Minnesota Vikings, but as the regular season approaches and training camp is in full swing, he still remains unsigned.
Cook, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, is coming off a 1,000-yard season.
“I haven’t talked to Dalvin but Miami is his hometown. The guys that we already have in the running back room I’m sure would welcome him with open arms,” Hill said. “This team is all about family and winning.”
Cook grew up in Opa-locka, Florida then played at Miami Central High School before becoming an All-American at Florida State.
After failing to find a trade partner for him, Cook was released into free agency. In the two months since he was cut, the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, and New England Patriots have all expressed interest in signing Cook.
Signing with the Dolphins means he could be the primary running back, sharing touches with Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr.
A second-round pick in the 2017 draft, Cook has made the Pro Bowl in each of the past four seasons, rushing for more than 1,135 yards each year. Cook rushed for 1,173 yards and eight touchdowns while catching 39 passes for 295 yards and two touchdowns last season.
