Training camp is now underway, but that does not mean Dalvin Cook will decide where he’ll play anytime soon. However, he is set to visit with the New York Jets this weekend. With Aaron Rodgers taking a pay cut earlier in the week and freeing up a ton of cap space, they have enough space to make him an offer he’ll be happy with– if they want to.
So, it is not shocking that the Dalvin Cook next team odds for the Jets sit atop the DraftKings betting board.

Cook has been a productive running back since entering the league in 2017. Last season was his fourth consecutive 1,000+ yard season and Pro Bowl (2019-22). He has had some health issues but played in all 17 regular-season games last season.
Of course, the drop-off tends to come fast and hard when it comes to running backs, typically after they turn 28. Cook is just 27, but the Vikings may see his slight dip in yards per carry as a sign the end is near (he went from 4.7 YPC in 2021 to 4.4 in 2022, a career-low).
But the perception that Cook’s prime years are in the rearview mirror is not something many teams share.
All Signs Point to the Jets Signing Dalvin Cook
Much of the talk surrounding Dalvin Cook’s time as a free agent has centered on the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots have been the betting favorite to sign him on the DraftKings betting board. The Jets have been in the discussion all along and now that he is set to visit the Jets, it appears as if a move to the Big Apple may be in his future.
But there is no need to make a judgement call based on conjecture, rumors, and innuendos. During a recent appearance on “Good Morning Football” Cook sounded as if he wants to join the Jets:
"I think we're in a position with a team that's building something special, and I want to be a part of something special… I wanna add to whatever they've got going on."@dalvincook on the odds that he signs with the @nyjets pic.twitter.com/whP688fxCo

It sounds like he’s made a decision and all that matters now is what they offer him. According to Spotrac.com, the Jets have $13+ million in space.
Dalvin Cook’s Next Team Will Be…
Based on the available information, here are our best bet and long shot/value picks on Dalvin Cook next team odds:
Best Bets: New York Jets -40o
They have cap space, they need a (healthy) veteran running back, and with the investment they have already made in Aaron Rodgers, signing Cook would be a smart move for the Jets. With what they have already given up for Rodgers, the Jets should do whatever they can to turn the roster into one capable of winning Super Bowl 58.
Long Shots/Value Picks to Acquire Dalvin Cook
As logical a landing spot as Miami may be, we do not know what Cook’s motivation is for choosing his next team. Does he want to have the best shot of winning a Super Bowl? Will the most lucrative contract sway him? Is playing at home and in front of his family an important factor?
Several teams are rumored to have interest and could make a move for him. So, who should you bet on? At this stage and with Cook’s comments about the Jets, it is hard to see any bets having value. But The following teams are our favorite long shots/value picks:
New England Patriots +425
There really hasn’t been much pointing toward Cook signing with the Jets, but the odds have remained among the top three for a reason.
Miami Dolphins +850
Cook’s recent comments about the Dolphins not making him an offer that he supposedly turned down are interesting, but he is from Miami and playing for the team he watched growing up could sway him if push comes to shove (and the Jets make a lowball offer).
Our Pick: Jets
