Latest Stefon Diggs Tweet Prompts Patriots Paranoia Across NFL — Again


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:

Diggs pulled similar stunts last season, and the parade of Bill Belichick GIFs always followed. And it’s not hard to see why, considering Diggs has openly flirted with Patriots players in the past.

Unsurprisingly, Monday’s tweet prompted similar reactions.


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.
