  1. Discuss Diggs’ “Drama”

    The cryptic tweets - he's been doing this forever. He enjoys getting a rise out of people. It's not my thing, but it must keep him entertained. No smoke, no fire. This is typical behavior for him. Thielen - Diggs was the first guy to congratulate Thielen when he got paid, they call each other "brothers", when the dust up happened last year Thielen still said they were best friends. There's so much information out there to support that they have a great relationship (even if people haven't bothered to look for it), why should anyone believe Minnesota sports media personalities speculating that there is a problem? Instagram - He's removed team pictures and references before. Guys do this kind of stuff, and I think it's just about as pertinent as his twitter messages. Show me one shred of evidence that Diggs is upset because he isn't the #1 guy. Not media conjecture, not former players furthering rumors for sports media outlets. Literally all I've seen is a guy that wants to win and perform at the highest level. People that are in the huddle with him have said he's a great teammate and hard worker. He's never said that he wants to be somewhere else. To me this seems like fans wanting and inventing drama that isn't there. Why aren't we making this argument about Thielen? He has tantrums - at least as many as Diggs, gets into shouting matches with opposing coaches on the field, and has publicly called out his QB. Is it because he posts cute family stuff on Twitter?
  2. Discuss Diggs’ “Drama”

    This seems really silly to me. Those guys have frequently said that they are best friends and want to play together forever and are always happy for the other one’s success. Not to mention that he’s pulled stuff from his social media multiple times in past off-seasons. sorry, Chad - I don’t buy it.

    There is no drama, the media needs something to talk about. /thread
  4. Everson Griffin Voids Final 3 Years of Deal

    I think he's going to try to work out a way to stay with the Vikings for longer at a lower cap number. He very likely doesn't want to go anywhere else because of his personal ties to the organization. Some guys are just different.

    I agree, and would expect Odenigbo to get more snaps, but I think there is value for the team in his veteran presence and for him in not having to pick up a new scheme and fight for a role at his age. I think the article said as much. This could be a very interesting, career defining off-season for Zimmer. If they are able to move on from the expensive defensive stalwarts and remain productive as a unit I think I would expect Zimmer and Spielman to receive extensions.

    I've gotta believe that they are working on a way to bring him back.
  7. Skins fan comes in peace

    Unless the plan is to tear the whole thing down this off-season, and to put them in a position to draft Lawrence, I don't see how this would be a good move. And even then - a weapon like Diggs would be invaluable to a young franchise QB.
  8. Skins fan comes in peace

    It would be tough to pass that up. Chase Young or trade it to MIA/LV with multiple first round picks. If they could find a way to trade Diggs and get 2 firsts out of it, I'd be on board. That's coming from a huge advocate for keeping Diggs.
  9. 2020 Draft Talk

    No, many have talked about him as a solid 2nd round, fringe first round player/talent. There are questions about his durability though.

    Stefon Diggs has been tweeting cryptic stuff like this for years. That's just who he is and what he does. I think he gets a kick out of it, honestly.

    You didn't make it up because you were bored, but your "sources" did. Widely discussed by folks on the internet creating hypothetical situations for off season clicks. There is no reputable source saying that the Vikings are considering this, or that Diggs wants out.
  12. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Where has this been widely discussed outside of a 1 week blip that he confirmed was resolved. This just isn't factual.
  13. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    That was the sticking point in my post? I was merely saying that he’s paid in line for what he provides on the field.
  14. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Why on earth would they use Diggs to free up money to resign Cook? Or Smith for that matter (my favorite Viking, btw 😊)? You seem to be under the impression that Diggs is an expensive player. He’s not making top 10 money like Thielen. A top 10 talent at 27 years old on that deal is worth more than a late 1st. Trading a young, underpriced, high impact player to resign an injury prone player at the most replaceable position in football, or an aging star would be a terrible use of the cap.

    Not even remotely close. Harvin’s best season came with a HOF QB having a career season force feeding him the ball. Diggs has been a consistent threat and creates space for other players without manufactured touches. Harvin was a great talent, but saying he was as impactful is really undervaluing Diggs. as far as the trade goes - there’s no way they can go into the season with Thielen, Bisi, and a rookie as their receiving corps. No thank you.
