Vikings re-sign restricted free agents Cook, Evans, Frampton

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed restricted free agents Ryan Cook, Fred Evans and Eric Frampton.

Evans is a key backup at defensive tackle behind starters Kevin and Pat Williams. He will earn almost $1.8 million after signing the second-round tender the team placed on him.

Cook is a swing player on the offensive line, with the ability to play guard, center and tackle. He was a regular starter at right tackle early in his career but has since been supplanted by Phil Loadholt. With top reserve Artis Hicks signing in Washington, Cook's versatility will be needed next season.

Frampton is a safety who plays primarily on special teams.
