Cook reports to Vikings training camp
Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook reported to the team’s training facility on Tuesday to take a Covid-19 test, effectively ending his holdout.
Cook had said earlier that he might hold on in search of a new contract this summer. By reporting Tuesday, Cook will not lose credit for the 2020 season, which would have made him a restricted free again in 2021 instead of an unrestricted free agent.
Minnesota also announced that newly acquired defensive tackle Michael Pierce is opting out for the 2020 season due to respiratory concerns.
