Chris Cook Stays With 49ers

After adding Shareece Wright, the 49ers continued their depth conquest by retaining free agent cornerback Chris Cook on a one-year deal, according to the Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson.

A key reserve in San Francisco last season after coming over from the Vikings, Cook suffered a hamstring injury that ended his season after six games. The 49ers signed the former second-round pick out of Virginia to a one-year deal on this day last year as well.

Cook started in more than 10 games for the Vikings in 2012 and 2013 before serving as a top backup last season. He’ll join Wright and 2014 teammates Dontae Johnson, Tramaine Brock in the competition for the 49ers’ new-look starting cornerback corps.
