No thank you. He’s missed 19 games since he came into the league 3 seasons ago and he is going to want huge money. I’d rather just draft another back with one of our top 5 picks next year, have a fresh new back on his rookie contract for a few years. We aren’t going to the superbowl this year, so why sign an often injured player who is going to want a huge deal which will eat up more of our cap room as he continues to rack up missed games due to injury when we can just see what we have with he backs we brought on this year and just draft another back next year? it’s not like he’s going to get more durable as he racks up more carries and hits.
That is a very interesting idea. But I think the nflpa would run into issues, why structure only one position. Although I really think if done right, your idea could be implemented across the board for the benefit of all players.If I'm the NFL players association, I push for shorter RB contracts the next time the contract comes up.
Recognize the problem and make rookie RB deals 3 years max.
Probably agents using Miami as a interest builder to try to get someone to bite on paying more money.Very talented player but also an injury risk. Not sure Miami would be willing to spend big money on Cook? I was a bit confused when rumors surfaced about Miami trade interest in Leonard Fornette, because he doesn't fit either, with his salary as is. Looks to be they will be bargin hunting or bargin shopping for RB's from here on out.
