The Minnesota Vikings have fined Stefon Diggs more than $200,000 for unexcused absences from practices and meetings. Diggs missed Wednesday’s practice due to what the team termed non-jury reasons. Diggs said he was absent because he wasn’t feeling well. Diggs also missed all team meetings on Monday and Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters last Thursday, Diggs addressed reports that he was frustrated with the Vikings’ offense and wanted to be traded. “I feel there’s truth to all rumors no matter how you dress it up,” Diggs said. “I won’t be saying nothing on it. I won’t be speaking on it at all. But there is truth to all rumors, I guess.”
Diggs signed a five-year, $72 million extension with Minnesota last offseason, with a base salary of $8.9 million in 2019, and over $10 million each of the next four years. He has 13 receptions for 209 yards and one touchdown so far in 2019.
