Cook happy to have a second chance

St. Joe’s graduate Domonic Cook was in camp on a tryout basis. The former University at Buffalo cornerback was grateful to have a second chance with the Bills.

Cook signed with the team as an undrafted free agent last year, but suffered a serious knee injury in the first week of training camp. He had surgery last August, and wasn’t cleared to work out until February.

“When [the Bills] called, I almost teared up for a chance to come back,” he said. “I’m just trying to get my knees back. My quickness was a big part of my game, so I’m trying to get my speed back up.”

Cook said he gained some unwanted weight being on the shelf for six months.

"I've lost most of it, but I still feel a little stiff," he said. "I'm trying to loosen up. Each day I've felt better."

Cook was one of 21 players in camp on tryouts, along with Niagara-Wheatfield graduate and former UB basketball player Byron Mulkey.

While not naming specific player, Gailey said he saw some good things from tryout group.

“We had a couple that impressed us well enough,” the coach said. “We’re going to go in and discuss exactly who we might need to bring onto the team.”

There’s not much room – the team has 89 players on their roster, which has a 90-player limit.
