A tweet from Stefon Diggs in response to the Minnesota Vikings extending Kirk Cousins actually did initiate trade talks with several teams.

“It’s time for a new beginning,” wrote Diggs.

The Vikings had made Diggs off-limits ahead of the trade deadline.

The Buffalo Bills had already done their homework on Diggs as they were aggressive in their pursuit of him at the deadline. 

The Vikings mentioned Percy Harvin as a model for the trade. In 2013, the Vikings received a first, third and seventh round pick from the Seattle Seahawks for Harvin.
