Vikings WR Stefon Diggs not focused on contract, just winning
Stefon Diggs is entering the fourth year of his rookie contract with the Minnesota Vikings and is in line for a big payday. While other players in the same position are sitting out of OTA’s and some even threatening to skip training camp, Diggs isn’t focused on the money as he’s more concerned with winning.
Diggs, of course, would love an extension to come his way, but it’s not something that he is worried about.
“This is a business and there’s a lot going on,” Diggs said on PFT Live. “Being a small portion of it I’m definitely sitting back just working every day and letting that stuff handle itself. I have people who will handle that. For me, it’s just coming in and working every day. It’s not about any contract or anything like that, I’m trying to win. That’s all I’m concerned about.”
Diggs is best known for the “Minneapolis Miracle” last year that propelled the Vikings to the unlikeliest of victories against the New Orleans Saints. On the final play of the game, Diggs caught a pass from Case Keenum, and he did the rest taking the ball to the house.
People around the Vikings organization know how good Diggs is as he has been one of the steals of the 2015 NFL Draft after he was taken in the 5th round.
The Vikings also have Danielle Hunter and a few other players that they need to extend, so they have a few decisions to make coming up.
