Near the end of the Cincinnati Bengals 27-10 defeat over the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Divisional playoff game, Bills superstar wide receiver Stefon Diggs could be seen on the sidelines visibly upset and frustrated.
Diggs appeared angry with his quarterback Josh Allen as he was not getting the ball thrown his way as he finished the game with just four catches for 35 yards, well below his season averages. To make matters even worse, Stefon left the stadium right after game and did not make himself available to the media, which is customary after every game.
Many believed that Diggs may try to force his way out of Buffalo after this, even though he just signed a four-year extension last year worth $96 million. His brother Trevon, who is a cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys, saw this as an opportunity to try and recruit his brother to the Cowboys.

Over the last several weeks, Trevon has been openly trying to convince his brother to join him in Dallas, by sending him messages and he even went as far as posting a photoshopped picture of Stefon in a Cowboys uniform on his Instagram story.
This may all be fun and games between two brothers, but the NFL may not see it that way as there are very strict rules when it comes to tampering and speaking with a player who is currently under contract with another team.
Just last year, the NFL made an example of the Miami Dolphins and their owner Stephen Ross by stripping them a first-round draft pick in 2023 a third-round draft pick in 2024, suspending Ross and fining him $1.5 million for violating the anti-tampering policy while pursuing quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Sean Payton.
Although there has not been any word of the NFL handing out any disciplinary action over this, maybe it would be a good idea for the Diggs’ brothers to keep these conversations private and out of the public eye.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
