Vikings’ Stefon Diggs On Trade Talk

Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs is generating trade interest, but he doesn’t necessarily want to be shipped out. On Wednesday, Diggs clarified his earlier comments regarding his dissatisfaction with the club.

I never said I was unhappy or uncomfortable with my role. I said I wanted to win, that was what my frustrations were and that’s where it kind of got misconstrued last week,” Diggs said (Twitter link via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press).

Diggs skipped multiple practices in Minnesota and has been fined upwards of $200K. In the midst of a five-year, $72MM extension, Diggs can take the hit, but he might not be happy about it.

Either way, Diggs seems to have calmed down, perhaps because the Vikings topped the Giants 28-10 last Sunday. Next up – a big matchup against the Eagles.

    At least Ramsey doesn’t flip flop. This guy, Gordon, & plenty others say ‘trade me’. Then followed ‘I’m happy with my current situation…’

      I think Patrick Peterson has gone a whole month without flipping (which is a record for him).

      Please go find a quote from Diggs himself that said “I want to be traded.” He has said multiple times that he has not asked for a trade, nor wants to be traded. These rumors are all fueled by the media. Prove me wrong or stfu.

        This is facts. Media blew this up. If you lived in Minny or DC & have watched cousins every week, you’d understand how he feels

    I mean I’m not so sure Ramsey did return to practice today and might play this week and if they start winning he might to be happy with his current situation

  3. I think Ramsey is serious about wanting out but also knows not playing makes him look worse. Not to mention he actually did have a back injury.

    I know there is some truth to the fact that players deserve to exercise a greater level of control over their careers. But the modern athletes desire to be traded to a winner whenever their team struggles ruins the idea of competition. Why do these guys on losing teams never take the responsibility of making a team into a winner, especially after you took their money?

      I say trade him to Arizona for Larry Fitzgerald and a 3rd round pick. Fitz can finish his career with the Vikes and we can draft another WR next year. Just a thought.
