Vikings running back Dalvin Cook will no longer participate in offseason activities and plans to hold out from training camp if he doesn’t receive a “reasonable extension,” a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
“He’s out,” a source told ESPN. “Without a reasonable extension, he will not be showing up for camp or beyond.”
To date, the Vikings’ contract proposals to Cook demonstrate that they are a quarterback-first team, per the source. This offseason, the Vikings gave quarterback Kirk Cousins — who had one year left on his deal — a contract extension paying him $30 million per season; Cousins will make $150 million over five seasons. Cook has one year at $1.3 million left on his contract.
