Former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs is making headlines again after deciding not to report to the Buffalo Bills mandatory minicamp this year.

After parting with the Minnesota Vikings in 2020, Stefon Diggs has really elevated his game to a whole new level in his last three seasons with the Buffalo Bills. In three years with the Bills, Diggs has earned three Pro Bowl selections and one First-Team All-Pro selection.

From the outside, it seemed like Diggs was happy with his situation in Buffalo. What's not to love about catching passes each week from star Bills quarterback Josh Allen?

Well, apparently, Diggs might be looking for a way out of Buffalo sooner than later. The former Vikings receiver did not participate in the Bills' mandatory minicamp practice on Tuesday according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, and the team isn't exactly thrilled about it.

Will Stefon Diggs force the Buffalo Bills to trade him like he did with the Minnesota Vikings?

Making Diggs' situation in Buffalo even weirder is the fact that he was reportedly at the team's facility on Monday and Tuesday morning, and then he decided not to attend the mandatory minicamp practice according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

When asked about Diggs' absence on Tuesday, Bills head coach Sean McDermott described the situation as "very concerning."

Unfortunately, Vikings fans are all too familiar with an unhappy Diggs, as his dissatisfaction with his role in Minnesota's offense eventually led to his trade to Buffalo in 2020.

So what might be the problem now? Diggs is still the top wide receiver on the Bills' roster, so it's difficult to believe any frustrations he has have to do with his role in their offense.

Maybe it's about money? But he just signed an extension last year, and he's due to make more than $24 million in cash this season. So it would be odd for him to be frustrated about that.

Whatever the problem is, it resulted in Diggs not attending Buffalo's mandatory minicamp practice on Tuesday, and if things aren't able to settle down, we could potentially see the All-Pro wide receiver force his way off of a team for the second time in his NFL career.
