Trade rumors might be swirling for Stefon Diggs, but it seems unlikely that the Minnesota Vikings will decide to part ways with the star wide receiver.

Diggs, 26, has been posting cryptic messages on social media for most of the offseason. Recently, he appeared to delete anything Vikings-related from his social media accounts.

Of course, this has led to some speculating about Diggs' future in Minnesota. It wouldn't be shocking if the Vikings decide to trade the former Maryland Terrapins star wide receiver.

NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero is downplaying those rumors, though. He said on NFL Network today that it remains a "longshot" that Diggs will be traded.

Pelissero added that "nothing" is going on right now.

Diggs, 26, was a fifth-round pick out of Maryland in the 2015 NFL Draft. He was a member of the All-Rookie team in 2015 and has posted back-to-back 1,000-plus yard seasons.

Minnesota is coming off a Divisional Round loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Diggs had two receptions for 57 yards and one touchdown in that game.
