The Ravens are hosting CB Chris Cook for a free agent visit.
Cook has long arms, great size, and ample straight-line speed, but he's never been an effective cover corner. The Ravens may be updating their emergency list after dealing with seemingly countless cornerback injuries in 2014. Aug 6 - 11:49 AM

49ers released CB Chris Cook.

The Niners blew $650,000 guaranteed on Cook, including a $150,000 signing bonus. The former No. 34 overall pick of the Vikings lasted just a couple days in 49ers camp after playing 48 snaps across six games last season. Now 28, Cook is likely running out of chances despite great size at 6'2/212.
Aug 5 - 11:37 AM

49ers re-signed CB Chris Cook to a one-year contract.

Cook was active for just six games last season due to a hamstring injury. He has a clearer path to playing time with Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox gone. 28-year-old Cook should compete for snaps opposite Tramaine Brock.
Mar 14 - 7:36 PM

The 49ers haven't had any recent talks with free agent CB Chris Cook.

The 49ers have interest in re-signing Cook, but there haven't been any new developments despite losing Chris Culliver and Perrish Cox to free agency. Cook was a non-factor in San Francisco last season, playing in just six games (48 snaps). He should be available for the veteran minimum.
Mar 14 - 5:26 PM

Chris Cook worked as the 49ers' starting right cornerback throughout spring practices.

Chris Culliver is coming off a torn ACL, and Eric Wright retired. Tramaine Brock will play left cornerback for San Francisco this year. A rehab project signed to a one-year, minimum contract this offseason, Cook will give Culliver his toughest competition in camp. Rookie Jimmie Ward is penned in at slot corner.

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.
