CBS Sports names Ravens as potential landing spot for Vikings RB

The Baltimore Ravens have been one of the best rushing teams in the NFL over the past few seasons. They’ve gotten many contributions from solid running backs over those years, with J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards being the two that are slated to take on a big workload in 2023.

When listing off landing spots for Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook, Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports put Baltimore’s name in the running. While adding Cook wouldn’t make a lot of sense on paper based on the presence of Dobbins and Edwards, he would create one of the best running back rooms in the NFL if the Ravens were to make a move for him.

“There have already been rumors that the Vikings will look to move on from Cook after June 1. At full speed, he is still one of the NFL’s best pure runners, fresh off a fourth straight 1,000-yard campaign. But he’s going on 28 with a history of nagging injuries, has racked up 1,500 career touches and is due at least $14M in each of the next three years. Minnesota hasn’t been shy about bidding fan favorites farewell to free up money this offseason. Cook’s departure would save the Vikings almost $8M via trade, allowing Alexander Mattison to headline the next backfield rotation.”
