Gang Green’s interest in Cook is still a question mark, albeit the four-time Pro Bowler is not shying away from expressing his interest to get enrolled in the Jets’ roster as he liked several tweets mentioning him and the franchise following his departure from the Vikings.

“I’m looking for that value of Dalvin Cook. If I walk into a situation, it’s going to be a situation where I can help somebody go take that next step of trying to go get that Lombardi Trophy. That’s all I’ve got my mind on. The money part is going to come,” he said.

“That’s my agent’s part. Me, Dalvin Cook, I’m looking for somebody that’s ready to go win. I can be the piece to go help somebody to turn the page of go win and turn the franchise to go get a Lombardi Trophy. That’s all I want. I want to hold that trophy up, kiss it one time. That’s all I’m looking for right now,” he continued.

Dalvin believes in focusing on his goal to display athleticism on the field with an aim to be a Super Bowl contender,

“My production on the field is all I can control. My agent, he does the best job in the world to get me in the best [position] I can be in. That’s his job. My job is to produce and be me. That’s all I can do right now. I’m sitting in the position right now where I’m so comfortable to make a decision. I just want to go contend for a Super Bowl right now.”
