On Saturday, the New England Patriots' star pass rusher and the Minnesota Vikings' primary ball-carrier teamed up to win the Sport Fishing Championship's "The Catch" tournament, competing against several more NFL all-stars. The event took place on the coastal waters of Miami Beach and was broadcast on CBS.
Along with captain and angler Taylor Sanford, Judon and Cook comprised "Team Gypsea," and the trio never relinquished the initial lead they established after catching a sailfish early on in the two-hour competition.
Under the SFC's billfish catch-and-release scoring system, which distributes points based on species, Team Gypsea caught a wide array, including red snapper, blackfin tuna, a giant amberfish and the sailfish.
"This ain't easy," Judon remarked on the broadcast after reeling in the sailfish and amberfish.
Cook hauled in a few red snappers and the blackfin tuna, which was a catch that further exemplified the Vikings RB's great progress following offseason shoulder surgery.
"Team Gypsea" collected a grand total of 425 points to win the exhibition.
SFC's "The Catch" raised money for the Coast Guard Foundation -- the premier non-profit organization that supports active U.S. Coast Guard members, veterans and their families through investments that support families, bolster unit morale and honor the Coast Guard's national mission.
