Former FSU football player considering joining Dallas Cowboys as a free agent.

Former FSU football star interested in Dallas Cowboys in free agency

Former Florida State superstar Dalvin Cook remains a free agent. He has yet to sign with a new franchise after parting ways with the New York Jets last season.

He’s currently looking for his next home because the Jets aren’t happy with him. The former Seminole player is reportedly interested in signing with the Dallas Cowboys to fill the hole at the running back position.


Michael Gehrken of the Dallas Morning News reported that Cook, along with Ezekiel Elliott, is interested in signing with the Cowboys.

“Team owner Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones told the Dallas Morning News this week at the NFL’s annual meeting that they could neither confirm nor deny interest in the running back,” Gerken wrote.

Cook signed with the Baltimore Ravens for the playoffs but never played and did not fill the role the four-time Pro Bowler would have expected with the Jets last season.

He could fill a growing void in Dallas. The Cowboys lost productivity in their backfield after Tony Pollard left this offseason, and it’s hard to argue that Dallas still has a better player in the position group than Cook.

The 2024 NFL Draft is right around the corner, potentially giving the Cowboys the opportunity to sign a rookie running back for the second year in a row, so if you’re interested in Cook, you might be interested in signing him.

wouldn’t be such a bad idea. Cook had 82 carries and 292 rushing yards last season, and zero points this season, but quickly fell behind due to depth. The former Seminole had a stellar career in Tallahassee and then had incredible success while healthy with the Minnesotan Vikings.

The past few years haven’t been ideal for Cook, but a move to a place like Dallas, where there appear to be few other options at the running back position, could be a bounce-back season.
