49ers Release CB Chris Cook



The 49ers officially announced the release of veteran CB Chris Cook on Wednesday.


Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that the 49ers are releasing CB Chris Cook on Wednesday.

Cook, 28, signed a one-year contract worth $1.3 million with the 49ers back in March, but is appears as though they prefer their other options at cornerback.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing  will free up $437,500 in cap space while creating $800,000 in dead money.

In 2014, Cook was limited to appearing in just six games and recorded six tackles and a pass defense for San Francisco. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing a total of 48 snaps the entire season.
