NFL Rumors: San Francisco 49ers interested in signing Chris Cook

The Minnesota Vikings are looking at ways they can improve their secondary this offseason, but one of the ways they may proceed forward is without Chris Cook on their roster. After a troubled and disappointing start to his career, the Vikings haven’t yet re-signed Cook and he’s starting to draw interest elsewhere.

According to the Sacramento Bee, the 49ers are looking into the possibility of signing Chris Cook.

It’s official. For the second straight year, the 49ers are in the market for tall, long-armed cornerbacks.

They’ve shown interest in 6-1 Dolphins free-agent Nolan Carroll, who is visiting the Bills today, as well as Vikings free agent Chris Cook.Cook, 27, stands 6-2 and weighs 212 pounds.

Cook has been a disappointment for the Vikings both on and off the field and they clearly haven’t been tickled by his antics. He was a first-round pick for Minnesota but he hasn’t been able to stay out of trouble and his attitude hasn’t thrilled the new regime.

A cane of scenery may be what Cook needs, and the 49ers look open to giving him that this offseason.
