The Miami Dolphins have one of the NFL’s best wide receiver tandems in Tyreek Hill and Jalen Waddle, and at times last season, they were downright unstoppable.
But this fall, dolphins may be even more powerful.
Recently, there has been some noise about Pro Bowl running back Dalvin Cooks possibly joining the team, as the Minnesota Vikings, his current squad, are reportedly looking to trade him.
If they can’t find a trade partner for him, they could potentially cut him, which would open up an opportunity for him to join Miami.
If that happens, analyst Kyle Brandt believes the Dolphins will have the best trio of wideouts and running backs in the NFL.
If Dalvin Cook becomes a Dolphin, this is the best WR/WR/RB trio in the NFL.

Last season, Miami went 9–8 in the regular season and made the playoffs despite quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffering multiple injuries.
When Tagovailoa was available, it looked like he made a big jump in his third pro season, and he helped Hill establish a career-high in receiving yards.
The Dolphins have been weak at running back for a while, and Cook, a four-time Pro Bowler, would give them a legitimate threat in the backfield that could occasionally catch passes.
Last season, he rushed for 1,173 yards and eight touchdowns while adding 295 yards and two touchdowns in the air.
Miami could use the extra firepower, as the AFC, especially the AFC East, has gotten even tougher after the trade that sent Aaron Rodgers to the New York Jets.
Cook’s move to Miami could make the race for the division extremely interesting and exciting.
