Current Minnesota Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs posted clips from a recent workout on his Instagram account that showed him wearing an Arizona Cardinals shirt.
If there is one thing to know about Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs, it’s that he loves to toy with people’s emotions. Whether it’s with a subtle wink during a post-game interview or a cryptic post on Twitter, stirring the pot is one of Diggs’ favorite hobbies.
With rumors of the Vikings potentially trading him this offseason still existing, anything the receiver does this year seems to be interpreted as some sort of sign indicating if he wants to leave or not.
The latest was revealed on Wednesday when images of Diggs working out in an Arizona Cardinals shirt began to circulate around the internet. These images were captured from clips the receiver posted on his Instagram account.
So clearly, Diggs wants to get traded to the Cardinals, right? Well, not so fast. As much as Arizona fans would love to see the receiver traded to their team, there is no reason to think that any such deal is going to happen.
According to KFAN’s Ron Johnson, the shirt was given to Diggs’ brother, Trevon, during a meeting with the Cardinals. Seeing the opportunity to mess with everyone though, Diggs decided to have a little fun by wearing the shirt during his workout and allowing the public to see it by posting clips of him in it on his Instagram account.
It’s extremely hard to believe that the Minnesota receiver didn’t know exactly what was going to happen after posting these clips. Diggs knows what he’s doing and he clearly gets enjoyment out of it.
As for dealing him to the desert, if Arizona were to offer their first-round pick (No. 8 overall) in exchange for the receiver, that’s something the Vikings would have to at least consider. Not only would Minnesota free up some cap space by trading Diggs, but they would also acquire a top 10 draft pick that they could then use on a cheaper replacement for the receiver.
For now though, this was just another episode of Diggs making Minnesota fans freakout with a post on social media. Don’t expect this to end anytime soon.
