Cook announced Monday that he intends to exercise a holdout from team activities until he receives a "reasonable" extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Heading into the final year of his rookie deal, in which he would play under a $1.3 million salary if not extended, it's not surprising to see Cook make use of what leverage he has and hold out from all team-related activities. Schefter reports that the Pro Bowler "will not be showing up for camp or beyond" until the Vikings offer him an extension, a hint that Cook could tentatively carry his holdout into the regular season should it come to that. The 24-year-old was one of the premier ball carriers in the league through 14 regular-season contests last season, accruing 1,135 yards on 250 carries (4.5 YPC), in addition to 13 touchdowns. He also showcased top notch receiving abilities, hauling in 53 passes for 519 yards. Behind Cook, Alexander Mattison and Mike Boone are next up on Minnesota's depth chart.
