49ers agreed to terms with CB Chris Cook, formerly of the Vikings, on a one-year contract.

Cook is an imposing 6-foot-2, 212-pound press corner with 4.4 speed, but could never get it together in Minnesota, on or off the field. CSN Bay Area believes he won't be guaranteed a roster spot. Nevertheless, Cook is an upside signing for a smart front office. The 49ers are completely remaking their cornerback corps.

Free agent CB Chris Cook will visit the 49ers on Thursday.

The 49ers are in the process of overhauling their cornerback corps, and Cook would be an intriguing flier. His game has never matched his measurables, however.

The 49ers are showing interest in free agent CB Chris Cook.

On Tuesday, the Niners cut Carlos Rogers and allowed free agent Tarell Brown to hit the open market. That leaves Eric Wright, Tramaine Brock and Chris Culliver as their top-three corners. Cook fits the mold as a physical, press player that goes 6'2/212. The Niners have also been linked to Nolan Carroll.

Free agent CB Chris Cook put out a series of tweets Monday evening after speaking to new Vikings coach Mike Zimmer.

"Talked to Zimmer today," Cook said. "He told me like it is. If it's in the cards I look forward to having him at the helm." It sounds like Zimmer didn't beat around the bush with Cook, which is something players respect and Zimmer is known for. We'd love to see what Zimmer could do with Cook, a 6-foot-2, 212-pound press corner with 4.4 wheels who's been an underachiever to this point.

Free agent CB Chris Cook said he would "love" to re-sign with the Vikings.

"From what I've heard, [coach Mike Zimmer]'s probably one of the best DB coaches in the game right now," Cook said. "So that's a positive for me if I get the opportunity to work with him." Zimmer has saved many careers. Pacman Jones and Terence Newman are a couple. Cook has been a bust since being the No. 34 overall pick in the 2010 draft due to poor play and an inability to stay healthy. Someone will take a shot on his 6-foot-2, 212-pound frame.

ESPN Vikings blogger Ben Goessling believes the team could be interested in re-signing free agent CB Chris Cook on a one-year contract.

Minnesota selected Cook with the 34th overall pick in the 2010 draft. He's missed 30 games in four seasons and likely won't have a hot market due to his injury-prone label. However, Cook has the size (6-foot-2, 212) that most teams desire. Cook can't be counted on as a starter until he proves he can stay healthy.

Vikings CB Chris Cook was ejected from Sunday's Week 13 game for making contact with an official.

Cook got beaten for a touchdown catch by Alshon Jeffery -- for the second time today -- and bumped the referee enough afterwards to earn the ejection. The NFL will review this and rule on whether Cook is eligible to play in Week 14.

The Vikings have ruled out CB Chris Cook (hip) and SS Jamarca Sanford (groin) for Week 9 against the Cowboys.

Cook expects to return in Week 10 against the Redskins. On Sunday, Minnesota will be without three secondary starters, as FS Harrison Smith (turf toe) is on injured reserve/designated for return. Cook is Minnesota's best cornerback. Look for Tony Romo to have open receivers throughout Week 9.

Vikings declared CB Chris Cook (groin) inactive for Week 4 against the Steelers.

Cook was ruled out on Friday and is considered day to day with a groin injury. A.J. Jefferson will start at right cornerback. Also inactive for the Vikings are QB Christian Ponder, SS Jamarca Sanford, DE George Johnson, TE Rhett Ellison, DT Chase Baker, and LG Jeff Baca.

Vikings RCB Chris Cook (groin) has been ruled out for Week 4.

Cook didn't practice Friday and remains day to day after missing the entire second half of last week's loss to the Browns. His absence leaves the Vikings with just three healthy corners on the active roster. A.J. Jefferson will start Sunday's game against the Steelers.

The Vikings are not optimistic that RCB Chris Cook (groin) will be able to play in Sunday's game against the Steelers.

The Vikings could really use Antoine Winfield now. If Cook can't go, it would turn A.J. Jefferson into a starter and leave them with only three healthy corners on the active roster. The Vikes are already ranked 28th in the league against the pass. It's an excellent spot for Ben Roethlisberger, who is coming off a 400-yard game.

Vikings RCB Chris Cook (groin) made the team's trip to London, and plans to play in Week 4.

Cook missed the entire second half of Sunday's loss to the Browns, but is apparently ready to go. A.J. Jefferson will get the start against Pittsburgh if Cook ultimately ends up sitting out.

Vikings CB Chris Cook left Sunday's Week 3 game against the Browns with a groin injury.

Cook was injured during the first half and has been ruled out for the rest of the game. The Vikings will go with A.J. Jefferson at right cornerback.

Vikings CB Chris Cook is asking the coaching staff to let him shadow opposing No. 1 receivers this year.

The Vikings have dabbled with this in the past, although Cook has been unable to stay healthy and establish himself in the "shadow corner" role. They'll probably give him another shot at it in 2013, while Xavier Rhodes attends to No. 2 wideouts as a rookie. Cook hopes the coaches will let him match up with Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, and Jordy Nelson in the NFC North.
