Dalvin Cook says Vikings’ scheme didn’t match his ‘bread and butter’

The move was anticipated because I’m a three-down back,” said Cook. “Running the ball, outside zone, inside zone, that’s what I do. That’s my bread and butter. That’s not their scheme. They want to get the ball out wide to the guys outside and they want to toss the ball around. That’s not what I’m looking forward to do. I want somebody that’s going to ground and pound, and we’re going to make plays on the outside and I’m going to help somebody win. That was just the move I anticipated.”
“The relationship between me, [Kevin O’Connell], [Kwesi Adofo-Mensah], all of us is just love. I appreciate them coming in and being the people they was. Making sure Dalvin Cook the person was OK every day I walked into the building. They good people and everything,” he said.


Rams Trade for Danielle Hunter Rumor: ‘Time & Place’ for Los Angeles Big Move?


Aggressive Jets Trade Proposal Delivers 3-Time Pro Bowler

New York Jets receive: defensive lineman Danielle Hunter
Minneosta Vikings receive: a 2024 third-round pick, a 2024 fourth-round pick, and a 2025 fifth-round pick

This not aggressive. It is actually trash.

Patrick Queen, LB, Anthony Schwartz, WR, Noah Igbinoghene, CB

I think a trade of Danielle Hunter to the Ravens for ODafe Oweh and Patrick Queen would be great. Maybe send back Troy Dye? If not him, then maybe the Vikings send a 6th round pick?

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

  • No discussion of politics or religion
  • No feeding of the trolls
  • Leave the gender hatred at the door
  • Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
  • Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
  • No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
  • If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
  • While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm
