With Chris Cook Suspended, Minnesota Vikings Looking For Cornerback Help

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Chris Cook is suspended indefinitely by the Minnesota Vikings in the wake of felony domestic abuse charges, leaving the team rather thin at cornerback as Antoine Winfield and Cedric Griffin continue to recover from injuries. Head coach Leslie Frazier is apparently looking to change that, however, by looking at available free agents on the open market.

"I think we have to," Frazier said Tuesday morning on the Judd & Phun Show. "I think we have to just explore every avenue. We're pretty thin there now whether it be by injury or other circumstances. We've got to continue to monitor what's available and what can help us if anything out there can."

The Vikings are still, as of Monday, considering all of their options on what exactly they are going to do with Cook. One of the options brought up Tuesday, though, is just to wait and let NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hand don a suspension from the league office rather than cutting Cook and losing his rights.

Either way, this is a messy situation.
