Chris Cook might be the first test case for the NFL to see if players fall under the jurisdiction of the league’s personal conduct policy for an act committed during the lockout.
The Minnesota Vikings cornerback was arrested Saturday night in Lynchburg, Va., according to WSET-TV, after he allegedly brandished a handgun during a fight.
A second-round draft pick last year from Virginia, Cook was in a fight with another man according to Lynchburg Police when he pulled out the firearm.
Commissioner Roger Goodell has taken weapons offenses seriously. We’ll see whether or not anything can come of this for Cook during a lockout when the league and teams are prohibited from contacting players. Stay tuned.
