Stefon Diggs wants to stay with Vikings

The Vikings' 28-10 win over the Giants on Sunday may have changed Stefon Diggs's mind about wanting a trade.

Speaking to reporters following the team's victory, Diggs told ESPN's Josina Anderson he wants to stay in Minnesota before adding a wink at the end of his statement.

The change in tone comes just days after 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 on Thursday. "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."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Thursday that Diggs's frustrations with the organization have been palpable, leading some teammates to wonder if he wants to be there. The Vikings also fined Diggs more than $200,000 for missing meetings and practices earlier this week.

According to The Athletic's Chad Graff, Diggs expressed the exact opposite sentiment on Sunday.

"I’m a team guy," he said. "I’m here. I want to win."

The Vikings (3-2) next play the Eagles on Sunday, Oct. 13.
