After missing the Minnesota Vikings last 10 games in 2011 due to a domestic violence case, cornerback Chris Cook is trying to build the trust of his teammates as he participates in the Vikings offseason program. Via Jeremy Fowler of The St. Paul Pioneer Press:
"I feel like I have to earn (my teammates') trust again," Cook said Wednesday morning, May 2. "I definitely let them down last year by being in this situation I was in. ... I'm really looking forward to earning their trust and being a contributing factor on the team."
The Vikings suspended Cook with pay throughout the legal process, which ended when Cook was acquitted of the charges in March.
Cook, a second-round pick from 2010, has played in 12 NFL games, missing most of his rookie year to injury.
