Stefon Diggs back at Vikings practice Thursday, but what does that mean?

Stefon Diggs back at Vikings practice Thursday, but what does that mean?

"You got to talk to him". Diggs spoke with the media for the first time in two weeks, and this is what he had to say about the rumors about wanting to get traded.

"I haven't spoken to him", Diggs said.

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs said he hasn't requested a trade from the Minnesota Vikings, but he did not lessen any speculation about his future with the team by saying there is "truth to all rumors".

Diggs's potential trade wish could be hampered by the fact that he is in the first year of a five-year contract he signed with the Vikings last year.

With the world trying to process the logic of this underwhelming display of a "message" in the light of Diggs' recent seven catch, 108 yard game against the Chicago Bears, the 25 year old receiver continued to shine the light of his disenchantment with most things Minnesota Vikings for several minutes. Seven of his receptions came in the loss to the Bears, though a lot of them were in garbage time as the team tried to find some sort of spark.

"At the end of the day you guys can post what you guys want for headlines and things like that, but internally in our locker room we don't worry about that stuff, we just focus on ball and making sure we're the best teammates and best football players we can to help this team win", Thielen said.

"Did I say that?" Rumors have been going around that Diggs wants out of Minnesota due to the lack of the passing game. We are where we are right now, and I'm saying a lot to say nothing right now, so you can get where this interview is going to go.

"I don't know", he said. It has become a run-heavy offense, leading to fewer opportunities for Diggs and Thielen.

"I can't sit up here and act like everything is OK", Diggs said, via Graff. The receiver answered questions about his personal chagrin towards his role-and lack thereof-in the 2019 Minnesota Vikings offense.
