Stefon Diggs has been one of the most vocal wideouts in the NFL – both on and off the field. He’s been involved in trade rumors for the past few months, but the Minnesota Vikings don’t sound ready to move on from him.
Minnesota was one win away from making the NFC Championship this year. Despite missing the final game of the regular season, Diggs finished with 63 receptions for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns.
Earlier this week, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman spoke about his star wideout at the NFL Combine. Spielman made it clear that Minnesota has no plans to ship out the former fifth-round pick, saying “There is no reason to anticipate that Stefon Diggs is not going to be a Minnesota Viking.”
On Wednesday, head coach Mike Zimmer addressed the Diggs trade speculation. His response wasn’t as emphatic, as he said “After that little thing last year, it’s been great. I don’t see it happening.”

Zimmer is entering the final year of his contract with the Vikings.
The Vikings have the talent to compete with any team in the NFC, but that’s only with Diggs on the roster. He forms arguably the best wide receiver duo in the league with Adam Thielen.
Diggs is under contract for the next four seasons. If he does become available via trade, there should be plenty of general managers interested in getting their hands on the 26-year-old wideout.
Do you think Diggs will be traded this offseason?
