Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook says he recognized that Stefon Diggs wasn’t happy with his situation in Minnesota but he still took the wide receiver’s trade to the Buffalo Bills hard.

Cook told the newspaper that he reached out to Diggs after the trade “and just told him, ‘That’s my brother for life and I’m still here with you.’ And he was the same. Vice versa.”
