Playoff-bound NFL teams rarely have the opportunity to add a Pro Bowl-level talent just before the start of the postseason. However, the recent release of New York Jets running back Dalvin Cook isn’t a typical situation.

The Jets and Cook have mutually agreed to part ways, giving the 28-year-old a chance to land with a contender ahead of the playoffs. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Cook is restructuring his contract and forfeiting remaining guarantees to make the move happen.

While Cook struggled to make an impact for the Jets (292 scrimmage yards, 3.2 yards per carry), he’s still a four-time Pro Bowler who tallied 1,468 scrimmage yards last season. Cook was also rarely used in New York, meaning he should be as fresh as a veteran ball-carrier could be in January.

Cook should have options. Below, we’ll rank the top six landing spots for him based on factors like team need, roster makeup and scheme fit.
