Diggs isn’t going anywhere
For the past few weeks, Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs has been the subject of numerous trade rumors. Diggs has himself to thank though for a lot of these rumors after skipping team meetings and practices when Minnesota was struggling early in the season.
After his performance on Sunday, however, it seems safe to say that any chance of the Vikings dealing the receiver before the trade deadline in a few weeks has completely vanished.
Against the Eagles, Diggs had arguably the best game of his NFL career. The Minnesota receiver ended Sunday with seven catches for 167 yards and three touchdowns.
Minnesota clearly made an effort to get the ball in Diggs’ hands a bunch this week. He had 11 targets during the Vikings’ win over Philadelphia and he even had two rushing attempts.
A team that wants to trade a player normally wouldn’t make that player a huge part of their game plan like Minnesota did this week. So at least for the remainder of the 2019 season, everyone should expect Diggs to remain in a Vikings uniform.
