You wanted new offensive inventions for the Minnesota Vikings. You got it.

At least one tease, Vikings halfback Dalvin Cook was used as a wide receiver in the minicamp this week, a departure from the Mike Zimmer era norm.

Cook, 26, is dating Minnesota Belco RB1 2017 season He replaced future Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson five years ago.

Upstairs Belco Part of Cook’s archive, Florida State Alumni is “one of the few” tailbacks featured as a per-down commodity in the NFL. Over the past few years, most NFL teams have centered on an Arabic hopscotch, designed for players to use in their rookie deals and then sever ties in favor of the next new shiny rookie. It’s more affordable. The Denver Broncos have been using this technique for over 20+ years. Ballclubs are unable to break the bank in a single run, instead employing a few cheaper versions.

But not the Vikings.

Cook is the fourth highest paid runner in the league, earning $ 12.6 million a year from his average annual salary. Only Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott and Alvin Camara make more money.

Vikings fans only know Cook’s skill through the lens of crime led by Mike Zimmer. The tide could turn as Kevin O’Connell turns to Egan with a new offensive plan.

In the case of dots? Auditioning cooks for some WR snaps. It’s new. In 2019, Cook had a great campaign in the air – Kevin Stefanski was in charge of the playlick then – throwing 53 balls out of the air for 513 receiving yards. But Cook’s strength in the passing game diminished when Stefansky left Twin City for Cleveland.

As evidenced by a single show, though, O’Connell can channel some of Stephensky’s thinking. After taking a few passes at Cook Minicamp, he apparently took the idea or at least sidelined it to tease, tweeting on Wednesday:

Really, cook WR.

Tossing Cook from time to time at the edge of the batting line-up would make sense to evolve into an ever-present pass-happiness in a league. The young offensive coordinators want to throw the pig’s skin and guess – the Vikings hired a young offensive coordinator to guide the ship in February. If Cook-WR staff is productive, O’Connell’s rent may be directly responsible.

Also, increasing Cook’s WR workload will allow his partner Alexander Mattison to take care of the batting-ram responsibilities. Mattison is not a well-known receiver – as Cook may be – so asking him to take Gritty Yards would be wise in a new Vikings offense.

It could all be a summer hoax, with opponents hinting that Cook would take over the hybrid – and not do so again. But that slander is probably a longing.

Cook seems ready to feel a role tweak, which fits his talent wonderfully.

His brother James, who had just drafted the Buffalo Bill with Stephen Diggs and Case Kiname, is expected to fulfill an RB-WR role. Probably the older brother would follow suit.

Overall, this is an example of the complete opposite of the Minnesota path Accustomed Do something. They will hand the ball to Cook 25 times, play some defense and hopefully win the game 24-17. However, one can only guess that more offensive tactics are coming.

This is just the beginning.
