Former Vikings RB on his way out of New York?

Earlier this year, the Vikings decided to part with longtime running back Dalvin Cook, and a few weeks after his departure, he ultimately landed a deal with the New York Jets.

The Jets and their fan base were initially excited about the addition of Cook, but that quickly went away after a few games, as the former Minnesota running back has struggled with his new team this season.

In six games, Cook has rushed for just 109 yards on 39 attempts (2.8 average per carry) in addition to catching nine passes for 46 yards.

Are his struggles mostly his own fault, or are they due more to the play-calling? Is New York's offensive system not a good fit for his skill-set?

Well, whatever it is, the Jets are reportedly willing to move on from Cook already. According to The Athletic's Dianna Russini on Saturday, New York is open to trading the veteran running back before this year's deadline on October 31.

The Jets probably won't get much in return for Cook, so the fact that they're willing to trade him should say a lot about how they currently feel about the running back taking up a spot on their roster.
