The Facts: GM Rick Spielman refutes rumors Diggs could be on his way out: “There is no reason to anticipate that Stefon Diggs is not going to be a Minnesota Viking.”
Diehards Line: As Yardbarker.com noted, reports of unhappiness in Minnesota have led to speculation about Diggs' future with the team. Diggs clearing his social media of any references to the Vikings have added to that. Remember, Diggs showed outward frustration in the direction of Kirk Cousins often this past season. Meanwhile, former Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway made an appearance on KFAN in Minneapolis Monday and had some rather interesting thoughts. “Listen, I played with Stefon, You get him to the side, he is a great dude, locked in, but he needs the attention,” Greenway told KFAN’s Paul Allen. “There is [Adam] Thielen and then there is Diggs and I can tell you, that does not sit well with Diggs.” This makes sense in that Diggs’ unhappiness last season seemed to surround sharing targets with Thielen. Diggs’ targets decreased from 149 in 2018 to 94 this past season. Though, he did put up a career-high 1,130 yards. Diggs, 26, remains an elite talent. But as Greenway notes, he seems to be high maintenance.
