The problems just keep on coming for Minnesota Vikings. The team is currently sitting at the bottom of NFC North, while witnessing some concerning locker room issues after their star wide receiver Adam Thielen called out quarterback Kirk Cousins for a string of bad performances. And if that wasn’t enough, now WR Stefon Diggs is feeling frustrated with the way the team is playing and might want out.
In recent days, reports surfaced that Diggs was unhappy with the organization, and might seek a trade. The 25-year-old was absent from practice on Wednesday due to “non-injury reasons” which only fueled the trade talks even more.
Diggs returned to practice on Thursday, where he spent time answering the questions from reporters. At one point, he was asked whether he wants out of Minnesota.
“There’s truth to all rumors. I won’t be speaking on that.” – said Diggs.
When pressed to elaborate on the matter, Diggs admitted he is frustrated with the lack of winning, but refused to give further explanation.
“I said there’s truth to all rumors,” – he added. “What I mean by that … there’s a lot of speculation of me being frustrated. Of course being a receiver and wanting to have success and wanting to win. If you’re not winning of course you’ll be frustrated. That’s my answer.”
The Vikings’ struggles with the passing game have caused Stefon Diggs’ stats in 2019 to take a hit. He has only had 13 receptions in the first four games of the season while scoring one touchdown.
There is no indication that Vikings are willing to trade Diggs at the moment. Reportedly, the only way they could think about moving him is if they would receive a massive offer they couldn’t refuse.
