After working out together on Monday, the rookie quarterback appears to wish that the Minnesota Vikings receiver was on the Washington Redskins’ roster with him instead.

As a high schooler in Maryland, current Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs could have chosen to play for just about any of the top college football programs in the country. But instead of signing with a school like Ohio State or Florida, Diggs decided to stay home and play for the University of Maryland.

Given where he is from, the Vikings receiver is always going to hear from the fans of teams like the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens that wish he would return home and play for their squad.

Earlier this offseason, Diggs’ younger brother, Trevon, even posted a photo on his Instagram account of the Minnesota pass catcher in a Redskins’ uniform. Nothing ever came of it and there has been no news of the older Diggs not being happy as a member of the Vikings.

On Monday though, the Minnesota receiver posted a few videos on his own Instagram account of him working out with Washington rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins. After their workout together at the St. James Sports Complex in Springfield, Virginia, Haskins posted the following.

It’s obviously just a pipe dream for the Redskins quarterback, but he clearly realized why the Vikings gave Diggs a big five-year extension last summer. The Minnesota receiver just makes life so much easier for the guys throwing him the ball.

Perhaps Diggs will one day end up playing for an NFL team closer to his home in Maryland. But for now, there is no reason to believe that the talented receiver is leaving Minnesota anytime soon.
