Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs needed a new hobby, and his choice for a new activity could pay dividends for him on the football field.
There is no denying that Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs can burn up a football field. With his blazing speed and hot moves, it was interesting to hear that the dynamic pass catcher wanted to pick up cooking as a hobby. Sadly, that passion didn’t seem to last very long, as cooking isn’t for everyone.
According to an article on the Pioneer Press website, Diggs had a little accident and he decided and decided that he should probably find something else to occupy his spare time.
"Diggs said. “I tried to do cooking a little bit. I almost burned my house down, but it’s all good,” Diggs said."

The new hobby for the surprise Minnesota Vikings rookie of 2015 is one that is all the rage these days. With many men and women trying out yoga to increase their stamina and flexibility and stay in shape, it’s a great hobby for Stefon Diggs to pick up.
Not only the switch to yoga help him mentally and physically, but there is a much smaller concern that he’ll burn anything down working through the poses.
"“My yoga instructor tried to convince me at first because I was trying to pick up something new, and she said, ‘This will really help you,’ ” Diggs said. “It just makes your career longer, as far as being flexible and being able to move around a little bit and increase speed, and I like speed. Yoga (at first) just seemed more one of those of things like more spiritual, like I wasn’t really into. But I did my own research, and it will pay off in the long run, so I took it up.”"
You can see Stefon Diggs and the rest of the Minnesota Vikings this preseason and regular season as they fight to repeat as the NFC North champions. Not only that, but the team will have a new home to defend, as this will be the first year the Vikings will play their home games at the newly constructed U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
