Chris Cook: Former Vikings CB reportedly cut by 49ers


Sorry Chris Cook, it looks like you won’t be getting your shot at revenge after all.

According to Matt Maiocco of, the San Francisco 49ers have informed former Vikings CB Cook of his release.

Cook signed with San Francisco last season and played in 6 games, notching zero interceptions. Cook returned to San Francisco for 2015 on a one-year deal worth $650,000 guaranteed.

The former 2nd round pick out of Virginia played four years with the Vikings, amassing zero interceptions and one domestic violence arrest that led to his being deactivated for 10 games.

Cook left Minnesota on somewhat acrimonious terms and was no doubt looking forward to playing the Vikings when they visit San Francisco for the season opener.

The Vikings will still be visiting San Francisco for the season opener, but Cook isn’t going to be there.

Unless Cook catches on with another team that plays the Vikings this year, his big plan to show Rick Spielman what he missed out on won’t be coming to fruition any time soon.

If Cook never finds another NFL job, the cornerback will exit the pro game without ever having picked off a pass.

Not one pick. Not even a lucky bounce. Nothing.
