Stefon Diggs, Jalen Ramsey Trade Rumors

Billy Woods | October 6th, 2019

A quarter of the games have been played in the 2019 NFL regular season, and disgruntled stars are already at their breaking point; speaking out to the media about the lack of direction for their respected franchises.

Those stars include notable names Stefon Diggs and Jalen Ramsey.

The Minnesota Vikings wide receiver was critical of quarterback Kirk Cousins and the lack of consistency displayed. Diggs, 25, is one of the marquee young talents in the NFL. It’s been a slow start for Diggs, who only has 209 receiving yards and one touchdown through the first four games of the season.

After a 16-6 loss to the Chicago Bears, Diggs was asked about trade rumors, to which he responded that the rumors might be true. If Diggs is this unhappy and if the Vikings offense continues to struggle, NFL teams could offer the Vikings a trade package to acquire the young receiver.

The Amari Cooper trade that sparked the revival of the Dallas Cowboys offense has produced a domino effect across the league. Organizations are now seeing the reward of trading draft picks to acquire talent that is already proven in the league.

To add to the fire, the Vikings fined Diggs $200,00 for unexcused absences from practices.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are still dealing with the Ramsey trade rumors that were created by Ramsey himself. The Jaguars cornerback spoke out about the misdirection of the team and overall disappointment of the past season and a quarter.

The Jaguars were a few plays away from reaching the Super Bowl, until Tom Brady led a fourth quarter comeback that showed why the ageless wonder if the greatest of all-time. Since that game, the Jaguars have been disappointing. Maybe it’s the decline of an already abysmal offense. Or maybe it’s the suffocation of actual expectations on an organization that has never been in the spotlight.

Khalil Mack set the trade market when the Bears traded for him. The Jaguars are seeking young assets and multiple draft picks, preferably first-round picks. Ramsey, 24, is one of the best cornerbacks in the league and has plenty of football left in the tank. Any contender would become close to favorites if they are willing to separate from draft picks to acquire a marquee defensive player.

The Kanas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots have all emerged as potential destinations for Ramsey.
