The Minnesota Vikings reluctantly traded Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills this offseason, leaving Dalvin Cook distraught at the move. Just around a month after the trade was completed, Cook shared his thoughts on the Diggs trade.
“That one hurt,” Cook said in a telephone interview with the Pioneer Press. “It hurt. That’s my brother. You know how close me and Diggsie were. To see him leave, it hurts because you spend so much time with a guy. … It hurt a lot of guys in the locker room, but it’s part of the business. We’ve got to accept that Diggs wanted to be happy and be happy for him as a player.”
Cook and Diggs spent the past three seasons together with the Vikings, forming a longtime friendship on and off of the field.
