It appears Diggs will be smiling while going about his business on the field pretty soon. According to multiple reports, the Vikings are closing in on an extension that will keep Diggs in Minnesota. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that it is set to be a five-year extension and that Diggs is expected to sign it on Tuesday.
Diggs was a fifth-round pick in 2015 and has racked up 200 catches for 2,472 yards and 15 touchdowns over his first three seasons. That’s made him a good partner for Adam Thielen at receiver for the Vikings and both players will now be signed through at least the 2020 season.
