The rumor was quickly put to bed by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, who reports that Diggs is not going anywhere. 

Diggs, a D.C. native, attended Our Lady of Good Counsel High School before enrolling at the University of Maryland. The Vikings selected Diggs in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. 

In four seasons with the Vikings, Diggs has accrued 3,493 receiving yards on 302 receptions, recording 24 touchdowns, and established himself as one of the premier wideouts in the league today.
