Trevon Diggs gets off social media to eliminate “toxic” noise

Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs has had enough, so he has made a decision to get off Twitter.

It’s toxic,” Diggs said Monday, via Rob Phillips of the team website. “I used to be on Twitter a lot, but I’m in camp. I’m trying to focus. I’m trying to lock in and just be better every day.”

The final straw came in a pair of practice videos posted on social media in recent days of Diggs getting beat by CeeDee Lamb and Simi Fehoko in one-on-one drills. The drill, of course, favors the offense with no pass rush and no safety help.

Other videos on social media show Diggs breaking up his share of passes.

But none of that stopped the haters from hating.

“I feel like that’s what comes with it. Hate comes with success,” Diggs said. “I don’t put it past somebody. Everyone is obligated to their own opinion. All I can do is control what I can control on the field and let my play speak for itself. I can’t respond to everybody; I can’t reply to everybody. So I’d rather say nothing at all just perform on the field.”

Diggs made the All-Pro team last season with a franchise-record-tying 11 interceptions.

  1. He was still a terrible CB at coverage. Just used his gambling ways to get 11 INTs. Newsflash: hofamers likes Deion and others never had that many but they were shutdown corners.
    It was hilarious seeing Aiyuk beat him like a drum.

  2. Good for you, Trevon Diggs. I cut the cord with Twitter and Facebook a few years back and am better for it.

  3. “Everyone is obligated to their own opinion.”

    Grammar aside, my opinion is he will return to the mean on interceptions, laying bare the fact he is getting torched early and often by opposing receivers. Pull out the crazy interception number from last year, and he is a very average to below average CB.

  4. I don’t have Instagram, Twitter, or TikTok. I go on my Facebook page once a month at the most. The closest I get to social media are an occasional comment here on PFT, and LinkedIn. My life is great and I’m not missing out on a thing. More people, especially men, should try it.

  5. Good for him for leaving social media. It IS toxic!!

    Just let your play do the talking and focus on perfecting your craft.

  6. Best thing he ever did for his life……social media is a dumpster fire…..filled with hate and anger…….terrible……ruining our country with that nonsense
