After the team's loss to the Bears on Sunday, Diggs had some freaky tweets and Instagram posts which led people to believe he might want out of Minny.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that receiver Stefon Diggs' frustrations with the organization has been palpable, leading some teammates to wonder if he wants to be there, per sources informed of the situation. "I won't be speaking on that", Diggs said, per Chad Graff.
"I haven't communicated anything", Diggs said when asked whether he has officially requested to be traded.
Offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski said Diggs was "locked in in meetings" and active on the practice field Thursday.
ESPN reported the Vikings had no intention of trading the receiver they drafted in the fifth round (146th overall) in 2015.
Thielen voiced his own displeasure with the way things were going after Sunday's 16-6 loss in Chicago, where he was held to just six receiving yards. Diggs signed a five-year, $72 million deal in July of 2018, but his contract isn't necessarily un-tradable in terms of dead money - and there is every reason to believe he is pushing for a trade right now. "And what I mean by that is there is a lot of speculation about me being frustrated".
"You want to have success, and you want to perform at a high level", he said.
"If they let me", he said. Early leads and a dominant running game in Minnesota's two wins made the passing game inconsequential, while the Vikings' inability to drum up a passing attack in their two road losses have limited Diggs' impact. "I can't say what's real and what's not". "I don't know at this point. It's obviously not. But what I can say at this point, just trying to work through it".
"We'll have to see", coach Mike Zimmer said when asked about Diggs' availability for Week 5.
Diggs admitted he wasn't happy with his team's offense - "I can't sit up here and act like everything is okay".
