Interesting that Cook did the same thing but they kept him since he's a starter (a s$&tty player though) snd the only reason they let Jefferson go because he sucked. Nice message they are sending for domestic violence

That team is ripe with this kind of nonsense---from Adrian Peterson to making babies by different mammas all over the country, to a front office having sexual harrasment of employees, to coaches sanctioning boat sex parties for the team, its been endless up there the last decade and a half...oh for the days of Bud Grant and a Clean Team and Owners and Mgt Personnel. The whole place stinks now----Les Frazier, the current head coach is a complete dunce too. Cant win, even with all that debauchery, so whats the point gentlemen?
