Why Patriots Fans Shouldn’t Expect Stefon Diggs Trade To New England


The Patriots have a pass-catching problem, and it sure sounds like Stefon Diggs won’t be part of the solution.

Diggs’ recent social media activity led some to suggest the star wide receiver could be a trade target for New England. The 26-year-old deleted all Vikings-related content from his Instagram feed, which coincides with the Patriots’ assumed pursuit of high-end offensive weapons.

But as he spoke with the media Tuesday at the NFL Scouting Combine, Minnesota general manager Rick Spielman effectively put the idea of a Diggs trade to New England (or anywhere else, for that matter) to rest.

“There is no reason to anticipate that Stefon Diggs is not going to be a Minnesota Viking,” Spielman said, per ProFootballTalk.

Unfortunately for the Patriots, another one of their perceived targets might not be available this offseason, either, as A.J. Green appears to be a likely candidate for the Cincinnati Bengals’ franchise tag.
