Will Stefon Diggs soon be on the move? Is this, like, the millionth time the star receiver has generated trade rumors on his own?
The latter definitely is true, and the former might not be far behind.
The Minnesota Vikings on Monday reportedly agreed to a contract extension with quarterback Kirk Cousins. Soon after, Diggs fired off a tweet that probably can’t be interpreted as anything other than a trade request.
Take a look:
it’s time for a new beginning.

Unsurprisingly, Monday’s tweet prompted similar reactions.

Shot in the dark, but…#Patriots land Stefon Diggs in a trade today which entices Brady enough time take a pay cut and come back for a 1+1 contract

If Diggs goes to the patriots and it lets them keep Brady I will cry

Now, Patriots fans probably shouldn’t get their hopes up about Diggs. Not only would the star receiver likely cost too much for the suddenly cap-crunched Patriots, but Tom Brady’s future in New England remains very much in doubt.
Round and round we go.
