Player Notes
Jul 19 1:50am ET

Minnesota Vikings special teams coach Mike Priefer said he would like to use rookie running back Dalvin Cook as a kick returner this year, but the decision will ultimately be head coach Mike Zimmer's. With Cook expected to see the majority of early-down action in 2017, that means it's unlikely the Vikings will allow their prized pick to be exposed to return duties right off the bat. Cook will likely be overvalued in fantasy drafts behind an extremely shaky offensive line, but he does possess heaps of upside.

Jul 18 10:13pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook may be a candidate to return kicks if special teams coach Mike Priefer has his way, although Priefer acknowledges the decision ultimately lies with head coach Mike Zimmer.

Jul 16 2:33pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook broke loose for a run of 50 or more yards 10 times during his Florida State career, and while the Minneapolis Star Tribune's Matt Vensel believes the Vikings might not ask him to take on 300 carries as a rookie, Vensel will also not rule it out.

Jul 11 11:53am ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook, a versatile, quick back is built to succeed under offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Shurmur has leaned toward using one back more than a committee style in his career. With RB Latavius Murray (ankle) still recovering from offseason ankle surgery, Cook is in a prime position to usurp him as the lead back.

Jun 29 10:43pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has an early leg up in the running back competition, according to RB Latavius Murray. 'Dalvin's already been through the organized team activities, he's already been through the offseason,' Murray said. 'So, he has that up on me.'

Jun 27 3:03pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) said he expects to be the starting running back Week 1 even though the team added RB Dalvin Cook in the draft.

Jun 19 11:23am ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook flashed his speed in minicamp last week and is a fast, long strider in the open field.

Jun 15 5:43pm ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has a chance to be a special player, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. 'Now, he's got some things he's got to work on, like all young backs, but I've been very impressed with him this spring,' Zimmer said.

Jun 2 7:13pm ET

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook's four-year contract is worth $6.35 million. The deal includes a $3.979 million signing bonus.

May 31 5:23pm ET

Minnesota Vikings second-round draft choice RB Dalvin Cook signed his four-year contract Wednesday, May 31. Financial terms were not disclosed.

May 26 12:03am ET

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook isn't working with the first-team offense yet but is fitting in nicely, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. 'He's a very instinctive runner,' Shurmur said. 'He'll get his foot down and gets up the field. He's actually pretty instinctive when it comes to who to block in pass protection and he catches the ball extremely well.'
