You no longer have to worry about how Ryan Cook will feed his family. Two days after being cut by the Vikings, the offensive tackle has signed on with the Miami Dolphins, who had a hole on the O-line after cutting center Joe Berger. One man’s misfortune is another’s good luck, or something like that.
Cook was originally drafted by the Vikings in 2006 in the second round – using a pick acquired from the Miami Dolphins in exchange for Daunte Culpepper. And now Cook himself has gone to the Dolphins. Cosmic.
After five up-and-down seasons with the Vikings, including a number of starts at tackle and guard, Cook became a free agent in 2010. No one was surprised when the Vikings brought Cook back during camp on a two-year deal – he is a decent swing man after all. Many were surprised when Cook was left off the 53-man roster on Saturday. But as we see, Cook was not unemployed for long, so it’s all good.
