Minnesota Vikings: Top 10 weirdest moments of 2015

10. Stefon Diggs protects Cordarrelle Patterson’s manhood
Before Stefon Diggs wowed fans on the field with his rookie exploits, he gave an early demonstration of his quick reflexes with this great save of Cordarrelle Patterson during training camp. Patterson and Diggs are just standing around minding their own business when a ball comes in on a trajectory that seemingly has it headed straight for Patterson’s manhood. Patterson was very lucky to have Diggs standing there! Although it kind of looks like Diggs may actually have deflected the ball AT Patterson’s groin?
The play reminds us of this moment from training camp 2010 when Brett Favre had his own encounter with a wayward ball. Unfortunately, Brett didn’t have Stefon Diggs or anyone else guarding his person. There was no one to deflect the ball away from Brett and he took one right in the junk.
While we’re on the subject of people taking things in the junk: happy trails Jared Allen! Ray Edwards’ crotch will never forget you!
