"The great folks at TSA went through my bag and stole my shoes and some of my clothes," Cook told Vegas Sports Daily at the Pro Bowl practice in Orlando. "I guess when you're forced to find work or find money to come in from somewhere for your family, you take it out on the people that you serve."
He continued, "When you don't feed your dogs, they go licking on your bones -- so that's what they're doing."
Cook, 31, earned AFC Pro Bowl honors after setting career highs across the board, including receptions (68), receiving yards (896) and touchdowns (six), each of which either tied for led the Raiders this past season.
He will replace Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce ,in what will be his first career trip to the annual NFL All-Star game set to take place at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida on Sunday, January 27.
