Is another high-profile receiver hitting the trading block?
On Saturday, Trevon Diggs, the brother of Vikings wide receiver Stefon, posted a photo of his sibling in a Redskins uniform on Instagram — perhaps wishful thinking for a family from Maryland. While the image has since been scrubbed, it didn’t go unnoticed by fans, who have welcomed former Minnesota quarterback Case Keenum into the fold as one of the new additions to Washington’s roster.
While Diggs’ brother doubled-down on his wishes, writing, “Bring him home,” to his Instagram story, a source bluntly told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Diggs isn’t leaving Minnesota.
“Despite Stefon Diggs trending on Twitter and his brother posting a picture of him in a Redskins’ uniform, he has not and is not being traded to Washington. ‘F–k no,’ said one source,” Schefter tweeted Saturday.
The receiver later poked fun at the news, tweeting, “Just got back from japan … so what’s going on now?”
Diggs, 25, a fifth-round pick in the 2015 draft, finished with 102 receptions for 1,021 yards and nine touchdowns last season.
