Vikings Agree to Terms With 2nd Round CB Chris Cook

According to Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune, the Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms with second-round cornerback Chris Cook.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Cook started 31 games at the University of Virginia, totaling 143 tackles, 7 interceptions, and 19 pass break-ups. Cook battled injuries as a freshman (broken leg) and a junior (sprained knee), before being ruled ineligible for the 2008 season. Cook made a strong return in 2009, starting all 12 games and finishing his career with 40 tackles, 4 interceptions, and 10 passes defensed.

At the 2010 Scouting Combine, the 6-2, 212-pound Cook ran a 4.45-40, with a 38” vertical leap and 11’00” broad jump.

With Cedric Griffin recovering from a torn ACL, Cook will compete with 2009 third-round pick Asher Allen for the team’s nickel cornerback job this summer.

Vikings second-round running back Toby Gerhart remains unsigned.
