If true, I wonder to who?
The Vikings wide receiver room is a fairly unhappy place right now. In the wake of an embarrassing loss to the Bears, a clearly unhappy Adam Thielenpublicly pointed out "you've got to be able to throw the ball," which was more or less a direct indictment of Kirk Cousins (who was so bad, the Vikings drafted a quarterback in the first round in Ryan Wilson's latest mock draft).
Cousins issued an apology to Thielen on Monday and it's not unreasonable to assume this week could be a "squeaky wheel" type of game for Thielen against the Giants. But what about Stefon Diggs?
The Vikings' other studly receiver got a perfectly fine target share on Sunday, catching all seven of the passes thrown his way for 108 receiving yards. The problem? His output in Week 4 was more than his combined receiving yards from Week 1 through Week 3. After inking a big deal with the Vikings before the 2018 season, Diggs was expected to be a focal point of the offense. He's been frustrated this year as a result of the Vikings struggles.
Stefon Diggs' absence from practice listed as not injury related, leading to speculation about a potential trade
Is Minnesota just mad at the receiver for speaking out or is he on the verge of being traded?
