The Jets released running back Dalvin Cook before the end of the season.

Dalvin Cook's short Jets tenure is over. Cook's representatives notified ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Jets were releasing him before their season finale against the Patriots.

Schefter said that Cook forfeited his deal's remaining guaranteed money.

Cook has 214 running yards, two fumbles, and no touchdowns on 67 carries in 15 games. All of those numbers are career lows and worse than his 2017 rookie performance in four games. The 15 catches for 78 yards were his second-lowest and lowest totals in seven years.

Cook was released by the Vikings on June 8 after four Pro Bowl seasons. Cook signed a one-year, $7 million Jets contract on Aug. 14. Aaron Rodgers drew the 28-year-old to the club.

At the time, Cook felt the Jets possessed the finest NFL one-two punch. Cook gave seasoned knowledge and a backup plan if there were delays while Breece Hall, the undisputed No. 1 back, recovered from his rookie season ACL tear.

Two months later, Cook discussed a trade with his agent and Jets general manager Joe Douglas, which went south. Although nothing came of it, Cook was honest about his dissatisfaction with not seeing the field.

"Of course it's frustrating," he told ESPN. I'm honest, man. I work. Trying to play is frustrating. New to me. From receiving the ball 20 times a game or so. Of course it's annoying. Something I've adjusted to."

Cook will be waived and become an unrestricted free agent if unclaimed. After the Jets release him before the playoffs, Cook may join a playoff team that needs a rushing game help.
