Trade speculation has been following Stefon Diggs since the 2019 season and now it has gotten even more steam yet again. On Tuesday, social media users noticed the Minnesota Vikings WR had suddenly removed all Vikings-related content from his Instagram account.
No photos and not a single mention of the team in his bio.
Diggs is entering the second year of a five-year, $78 million deal with the Vikings, but his Instagram activity has now led to speculation that he might be headed to the New England Patriots.
“Stefon Diggs is unhappy in Minnesota,” said Colin Cowherd on Tuesday, suggesting that the Patriots could give the Vikings their first-round pick, which is 23rd overall.
“Minnesota’s looking to move off him for the right pick. They are,” he added.
The 26-year-old caught 63 passes for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns in 2019 and would be a major upgrade to the Patriots offense who struggled all season long and it finally caught up to them in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
Only time will tell, but if this does go down, you can fully expect a 42-year-old Tom Brady to come back to the Patriots with a brand new weapon at his disposal.
