Vikings' Stefon Diggs doesn't lessen speculation, says 'truth to all rumors'

Vikings' Stefon Diggs doesn't lessen speculation, says 'truth to all rumors'”

What has caused a lot of frustration for fans of the club - and receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen - has been the team's lack of a passing game largely due to QB Kirk Cousins' struggles.

The reigning CFL Most Outstanding Player worked out in Minnesota last December with head coach Mike Zimmer present. Not only did he want to join the team, he wanted to win the starting job.

A spokesperson for the team confirmed that Trump phoned Cousins to "briefly congratulate him and the Vikings on the win in NY".

Cousins signed a (fully guaranteed) three-year, $84 million contract with the Vikings in 2018, after he played in Washington from 2012-17.

Mitchell promised on his show that Minnesota's offence would be running much differently if he were at the helm.

Following workouts with seven National Football League teams, Mitchell signed a four-year contract worth nearly $3 million to keep playing for the Calgary Stampeders. He doesn't like that the offense isn't taking chance down the field. "Obviously, I wish I had a few more opportunities to help us win, but I'll watch film very critically".

"I said, 'I'm gonna come in here and I'm gonna take Kirk's job, '" Mitchell recounted.

"He was like, 'Oh, no, no, n-n-n-no, we don't want you to take Kirk's job". During the first season of the deal, Cousins completed 70 percent of his passes for 4,298 yards and 30 touchdowns against 10 interceptions. "You've got to talk to him".

"I don't understand that thought process", he outlined. Don't worry about anything you do or the decisions you make or anything the media says, just do what we tell you to do and you're going to be fine.' It's mind-blowing.

Mitchell believes this mentality from Minnesota can hurt the team's culture.

As for Mitchell, he claims that this conversation with a team official made him turn away from signing with Minnesota.
