Dalvin Cook and the Minnesota Vikings appear to have a mutual interest in reaching a long-term deal.

With the Vikings reportedly expected to discuss an extension with Cook's agent this offseason, the standout running back seemingly made his desire to remain with the team beyond next season known Wednesday.

"I love the organization. They took a chance on me in bringing me in," Cook told Nick Shook of NFL.com. "If a person believes in me, I'll give them my all. I try to do everything, give them my all, and I'm just happy that I'm at the Vikings. It's a great organization. I think everything we've got going on is for the future."

Cook will enter the final year of his rookie contract in 2020. He's scheduled to earn $1.33 million in base salary.

The Vikings drafted the Florida State product with their second-round pick in the 2017 draft. Although Cook missed 17 games over his first two NFL seasons due to various injuries, he enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2019, rushing for 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns.

"It was a good season," he said. "Obviously, it wasn't the ending that we wanted, but I think it's a lot we could get accomplished, and that playoff game (Minnesota's wild-card win over the New Orleans Saints) is a game we can remember and piggyback off of it."

The 10-6 Vikings clinched a playoff spot this season as the sixth seed in the NFC. They made it to the divisional round before falling to the San Francisco 49ers.
