The Minnesota Vikings have tried to defuse trade rumors involving Stefon Diggs, but the superstar wideout continues to fuel that fire. In fact, his latest act would suggest that he may want to suit up for another franchise.
Back in February, Diggs deleted all photos of the Vikings from his Instagram. Shortly after doing that, he posted cryptic messages on Twitter, such as “Everything that was done in the dark is about to come to light.”
On Tuesday night, Diggs was wearing an Arizona Cardinals shirt during his workout. He posted videos from his workout on his Instagram story. As you’d expect, it quickly resulted in fans speculating about his future with the Vikings.
There’s no explanation as to why Diggs was wearing Arizona apparel, but it obviously isn’t sitting well with fans in Minnesota. It’s almost as if the former fifth-round pick wanted to fuel more trade rumors.

As of right now, there’s zero indication that Arizona will try to acquire Diggs via trade.
Diggs had 63 receptions for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns this past season.
Vikings general manager Rick Spielman tried to shut down these trade rumors at the NFL Combine, but this latest move from Diggs certainly doesn’t help the situation.
We’ll continue to monitor Diggs’ situation in Minnesota, as the 26-year-old wide receiver could eventually be on the move.
