The New England Patriots offense looked, well, less than stellar in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills.
New England’s offense managed just nine points and Tom Brady threw for just 150 yards in the Pats’ 16-10 win on the road in a performance that has many Patriots fans begging for the team to add more offensive weapons.
That leads us to Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs. The 25-year-old has hauled in just 13 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown in four games this season after bringing in 102 passes last season. It’s been speculated that the Vikings could consider trading the playmaker before the Week 8 deadline.
That hype only grew on Monday, when Diggs put out a rather cryptic tweet, leading Patriots fans to circle the wagons on Twitter.
Just a friendly reminder that the Patriots have $192,198 in cap space (thank you, Antonio Brown). Also, Diggs is signed through the 2023 season in a deal worth $81 million, including more than $40 million in guarantees.
So, maybe we all should just take a deep breath.
