While the Vikings stated on Wednesday they had no intention of trading Diggs, he did make his frustrations with them known on explaining that hes not in any way happy with the way things are and he also didnt hide his frustrations.
This is exactly what Diggs said concerning the trade rumors in an interview after Thursdays practice:I really feel just as though there is truth to each of rumors, you understand? I mean, however you dress it up… I wont be speaking on it whatsoever. He added that he hasnt asked for a transaction which he didnt inform his agent.
NFL insider Ian Rapoport appeared to the NFL Network afterwards and discussed Diggs latest comments, saying that hisfrustration is extremely real. Per Rapoport:Stefon Diggs isnt happy with the crime, with his role in the crime, together with the direction theyve taken.
A 2-2 beginning is obviously unsatisfactory and fellow wide receiver Adam Thielen can be angry with the teams passing game:
You need to have the ability to throw the deep ball, Thielen said after last Sundays 16-6 loss from the Bears. He noticed that the Vikings are now one-dimensional.
Quarterback Kirk Cousins appeared on KFAN on Tuesday and apologized to Thielen:Postgame once I talk about the media I always say,Hey, before I see the movie, its hard for me to actually give you a direct response Well, today its Tuesday night. Ive watched the film and the fact is that there were opportunities for [Thielen].
