Cook holding out for new contract

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Dalvin Cook logged off from virtual team activities with the Minnesota Vikings. He’s no longer willing to participate until he has secured a new contract.

His situation is the latest standoff between an NFL team and a star running back. There’s the possibility of several more in the coming year in a league that has steadily driven down the financial value of the position.

A person with direct knowledge of Cook’s decision confirmed to The Associated Press he would not report to training camp without a new deal. Cook made the Pro Bowl last season.
