Dalvin Cook was waived by the New York Jets on Wednesday, and apparently a couple of playoff teams have interest in him.

CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson reported Wednesday that the Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys have interest in Cook.

Cook can be signed for the minimum if he clears waivers.

Cook hardly contributed for the Jets this season. He had just 67 carries for 214 yards over 15 games. He added 15 catches for 78 yards. However, Cook made the Pro Bowl in the four previous seasons — all spent with the Minnesota Vikings.

The Ravens have Gus Edwards and Justice Hill leading their ground game, with Melvin Gordon as another option. Keaton Mitchell previously served as the team’s third running back but he suffered a torn ACL in Week 15.

The Cowboys have Tony Pollard and Rico Dowdle as their running backs, but Dowdle missed the team’s Week 17 game due to an ankle injury. Deuce Vaughn was just placed on IR due to his ankle as well.

Both teams might have interest in taking a look at Cook.
