NFL trades make no sense
In just about every other sport, trading a good player usually nets a pretty good return. In baseball, you get a slew of highly regarded prospects. In basketball, you usually got some solid players and some first-round picks (which can be useful even if they aren’t able to be used until the planets of the Grimlap system align). In football, you’re probably getting a fourth-round pick.
Such is the way of trading in the NFL. If a team has an unhappy player, the usual return is some low-ball offer because the player is usually a malcontent or something. There are exceptions (such as the Steelers sending a first-round pick and more to Miami for Minkah Fitzpatrick), but most of the time, offers feel underwhelming and a punch to the gut when that player does well.
Yet fans seem to be hellbent in photoshopping Diggs in a different colored uniform. The Washington Redskins have been doing it from the moment Diggs signed his extension and rumors keep churning out the Diggs is a goner.
In reality, the Vikings wouldn’t come close to getting a decent return for Diggs and the pieces they would get (even if their name is Jalen Ramsey) aren’t going to fix what’s wrong with a team that has consistency issues just four games into the season.
