“I consider myself the best back in the game,” he said.
“The things I do coming out of the backfield, the things I do in between the tackles, I block, I pretty much do it all. I don’t have to come off the field.”
Cook also spoke about his relationship with the Vikings.
“I definitely love Minnesota,” Cook said previously.
“I love everything the state has to bring. Being a kid, I was drafted from Miami, so I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I actually am happy where I’m at, and I would like to be in Minnesota long term.”
Last year Cook amassed 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns on 250 carries.
