Buffalo Bills Division Rival Makes Big Free Agent Signing
We're less than one month away from the regular season opener for the Buffalo Bills.
The Bills will travel to MetLife Stadium to play at the New York Jets. It's on Monday Night Football in week 1 and will feature Josh Allen against Aaron Rodgers, in what will be his first regular season game in a Jets uniform.
Rodgers spent the first 17 years of his career with the Green Bay Packers.
The future hall of famer has an array of weapons at his disposal, like running backs Breece Hall and Michael Carter; along with wide receivers Garrett Wilson, Corey Davis and Allen Lazard.
The Jets have now added another weapon to their offense, and it's someone who has been one of the top five running backs over the last five years in the NFL.
The Jets are signing running back Dalvin Cook to a one-year deal, worth up to $8.6 million.
Cook is the older brother of Bills running back James Cook. Dalvin has been a star with the Minnesota Vikings since 2017.
Dalvin Cook has made four Pro Bowls and has rushed for over 1,000 yards the last four seasons.
Cook wasn't quite the same player in 2022 and the Vikings decided to move on from him after the season. They want to focus more on the passing game and there is some thought that Cook's decline will now begin at 28 years old. However, the Jets feel it's worth it to bring him in and help their already improved offense in what should be a tough division.
This comes an hour after news of the New England Patriots bringing in former Dallas Cowboys running back, Ezekiel Elliott.
We shall see how big of an impact Dalvin Cook has on the AFC East.
