Trading Diggs seems unlikely

Arguably the hottest topic of the Vikings’ offseason so far has been the trade rumors surrounding their star receiver, Stefon Diggs. Multiple reports of Diggs’ alleged unhappiness in Minnesota and the team’s interest in dealing him have been making the rounds during the last few weeks.

During this week’s NFL Scouting Combine, however, Mike Zimmer and Rick Spielman made it pretty clear that the Vikings have no plans of trading the talented receiver this offseason.

During his presser on Tuesday, Spielman commented that, “there is no reason to anticipate Stefon Diggs is not going to be a Minnesota Viking,” next season. Then on Wednesday, Zimmer was asked by reporters about a potential Diggs trade this year and he said, “I don’t see it happening.”

These comments from Minnesota’s two decision-makers seem to indicate that the receiver isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

This could also just be Spielman and Zimmer’s way of not hurting Diggs’ potential trade value by not ridiculing him in the public. But for now, expect the talented receiver to suit up for the Vikings in 2020.
