Breaking News: Cleveland Browns Sign 4-Time Pro Bowl RB After Unexpected Release

The Cleveland Browns running game could use a boost for the postseason and recently released veteran Dalvin Cook is an available and intriguing option.

Cook was cut by the New York Jets on Tuesday, January 2. The move will allow Cook to sign with a playoff team. The Browns faced the Jets on Thursday in their Week 17 matchup and Cook did not play a single snap. It was the latest display of how the four-time Pro Bowler’s role has been reduced with the struggling Jets.

Cook carried the ball only 67 times for 214 yards — a 3.2-yard average — during his time with the Jets. He was released by the Minnesota Vikings this offseason after four consecutive Pro Bowl selections. He rushed for over 1,000 yards in each. Cook’s best season came in 2020. He ran for 1,557 yards and 16 touchdowns. He added 44 catches for 361 yards.
Once Cook hit the open market, the idea of him signing with the Browns began to be floated.

“Dalvin cook has 67 rushes this season..the man legs are fresh AF and he knows the system,” Earl Da Pearl of 92.3 The Fan tweeted. “The Browns just ran for 100 yards for the first time since Denver. Cook immediately makes that backfield better. Go get this man right damn now.”

Browns pundit Grant Puskar also floated the idea.
“Don’t kill me, because I do not say this about every single player like some,” Puskar tweeted. “But, if I’m the Browns, I’m absolutely at least considering Dalvin Cook.
