Diggs: 'There's truth to all rumors'

Amid speculation that Stefon Diggs wants out of Minnesota, the wide receiver said he hadn't formally request a trade but there is "truth to all rumors".

"There's a lot of speculation about me being frustrated, of course, being a receiver and wanting to have success, and wanting to win, If you want to win and you're not winning of course you'll be frustrated", Diggs said.

By the end of the day, it was still unclear whether Diggs will play Sunday against the New York Giants, what kind of disciplinary action will be taken against him and whether he'll try to force the Vikings to trade him.

Diggs spoke to reporters on Thursday for the first time in two weeks and was on the field for practice two hours later, after missing the workout on Wednesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Diggs would only be traded if Minnesota received a "massive" offer. Diggs explained he wasn't at the facility on Monday or Wednesday because he didn't feel well, though Graff pointed out that the team didn't list him on the injury report as being absent Wednesday due to illness, but a non-football reason.

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.

But Diggs says whether or not he'll stay in Minnesota will depend on if "they want me here".

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.

"I can't sit up here and act like everything is OK", Diggs said, via Graff.

ESPN reported the Vikings had no intention of trading the receiver they drafted in the fifth round (146th overall) in 2015. I said there's truth to all rumors. "I think that's a media thing more than frustration from us".
