The San Francisco 49ers released veteran cornerback Chris Cook on Wednesday.

The 49ers re-signed Cook to a one-year contract in the offseason that included a reported $650,000 guaranteed.

The 6-foot-2, 212-pound Cook originally signed with San Francisco on March 14, 2014, and appeared in six games last season before a season-ending hamstring injury. He registered three tackles, one pass defensed and two tackles on special teams.

Originally drafted in the second round (34th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings, the five-year veteran has appeared in 40 games (29 starts), registering 124 tackles, 34 passes defensed and one sack.
