The New York Jets have released veteran running back Dalvin Cook on Tuesday. He signed with the team in the offseason.

Cook now will be eligible to sign with another team. He hopes to sign with a playoff contender.

He had 67 carries for 214 yards. Cook also had 15 receptions for 78 yards.

Cook joined the Jets when the team had Super Bowl expectations following their offseason acquisition of future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers. He suffered a torn Achilles injury just four snaps into his season.

The Jets were recently eliminated from playoff contention.

In his final game with the Jets, he did not have a carry on Christmas Eve against the Washington Commanders. He also did not have a reception either in the contest.

Cook also had one carry against the Miami Dolphins on December 17th. The carry was for four yards. He also had one reception for six yards.

The veteran has not had more than 35 rushing yards in a game this season. He had the aforementioned 35 rushing yards on nine carries against the Atlanta Falcons on December 3rd.

If he does not have another yard this season or has a minimal impact with his new team in the final regular season game, it will be the worst season of his career. He had 354 yards in just four games during his rookie season in 2017.

Depending on how he does with his new team, Cook’s playing days may be numbered. Due to his limited experience with the Jets, it may impact his free agency in March.

The teams have shown that they would prefer the rookie or undrafted player than a big market back so Cook’s time left in the league may be coming to an end.
