A tweet made by former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs on Thursday seemed to be a bit of a shot aimed at his current Buffalo Bills teammate, Cole Beasley.

Stefon Diggs using his Twitter profile to express his feelings is something Minnesota Vikings fans got very used to during his tenure with the team. Remember, it was a tweet from Diggs that eventually resulted in the Vikings trading him to the Buffalo Bills last year.

With the Bills now, the former Minnesota receiver is still posting tweets to let his thoughts be known.

On Thursday, Diggs conveniently made a post on his Twitter account that read “accountability … availability,” shortly after the NFL announced that a team dealing with COVID outbreak among unvaccinated players will have to forfeit a game impacted by the outbreak this year if a matchup is unable to be rescheduled within the 18-week regular season.

In addition to a team with an outbreak among unvaccinated players potentially being forced to forfeit a game, none of the players from either team involved in the matchup will receive a game check if the contest is unable to be rescheduled.

For players like Diggs, missing a game could mean missing out on a tremendous amount of money. So he’s certainly not going to be happy if Buffalo is forced to forfeit a matchup next season due to an outbreak among unvaccinated players on their roster.

While some might view the tweet from Diggs on Thursday as him sending a message to the entire Bills locker room, others will think he posted what he did so that his teammate, Cole Beasley, would see it.

Beasley is someone who has been vocal on social media about his lack of desire to get any of the COVID vaccine shots that are currently available. Back in June, he even said that he would rather retire than get vaccinated.

Buffalo is entering a season in which many believe they can contend for a spot in the Super Bowl. Diggs knows this and his tweet on Thursday is just one way of letting his teammates know that they should be making sure nothing gets in the way of their main goal this year.
