For whatever reason there’s a quote from the 90’s super underrated comedy Kingpin I quote all the time. After Ishmael breaks his hand, spoiler alert, he says to Woody Harrelson’s character Roy Munson, “It’s over Mr. Munson, it’s broken”.

I can’t find that clip so instead let’s just use the following reference.

That’s right, the Vikings are officially Munsoned.

According to multiple reports super unhappy for some reason receiver Stefon Diggs got his wish and was traded to Buffalo today for a load of draft picks that Vikings GM Rick Spielman will undoubtedly use on some busy replacement receiver from South Carolina.

As earlier reported today, Diggs was less cryptic but more Diggs than usual on social media today, stating some Waaaaaah! Waaaaah! WAAAAAAH! about new beginnings and calling a fan “champ” for pointing out exactly how he’s been acting for the past year and a half.

Diggs was one of the best receivers in team history despite not putting up the stats to prove it. That’s not on him, though, as the Vikings had a QB-carousel for most of his time here as well as nearly a new offensive coordinator every season and a half. Although up until 2019 Diggs had missed significant time each season of his young career.

This move opens up a lot more cap space for the Vikings as Diggs was due over $10 million in 2020 and $11.4 million in the next three seasons. With QB Cousins extension, the Vikings had opened over $20 million in cap space in the last 24 hours, although a large chunk of that was used on S Anthony Harris’ franchise tag.

Perhaps the extension of Cousins was just something Diggs couldn’t stomach?

Stay tuned for more reaction on this move both here and on our sister site VikingsTerritory.com. Hop into our message board to discuss this and all of the crazy Vikings happenings from this week.

In the meantime I’ll be watching Kingpin and pretending none of this is real.

      This breaks my heart; I loved watching him play. I loved covering him–always treated me with respect. But i must say that I saw this coming for years. I never really bought into the Thielen-Diggs bromance that the two talked about. I wondered (in print and on MJs) when the other shoe was going to fall. Two WRs with equal ability but different skills playing opposite each other and no clear number one determined. I always felt it couldn’t last and that there was a bit of diva in old Diggsy. It is too bad because I think they compliment each other so well, and if you are concerned about winning rather than being a star (who needs to take off his helmet and show his face at the drop of a hat), it can work. But that was not the case here. Diggs got paid here. Diggs got the ball this season here. Diggs just didn’t get what he wanted here–if that was that he didn’t get the ball enough from Cousins or didn’t get the recognition as a No. 1 that he wanted, well then so be it. I guess you got to go. The Vikings could have had another year with this offense that was improving, but now it has to retrench and start over again. It wasn’t enough to be known as the best WR tandem in the league, I guess. It was enough to go to the playoffs in two of the last three years and one time to the NFC title game. And it wasn’t enough to split receptions with the rest of offense. Bummer dude. Breaks my heart a bit. I want to wish you good luck in Buffalo, but I am not there yet. I will get there. Thanks for the thrills.
