Vikings, Diggs reach deal on 5-year extension

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

The Minnesota Vikings have secured yet another core player with a long-term contract, signing wide receiver Stefon Diggs to a five-year extension and moving the star of the ''Minneapolis Miracle'' pass into the NFL's top 10 highest-paid players at his position. Diggs has yet to post a 1,000-yard or 100-catch season, but his ability was on full display when he turned a sideline catch into a 61-yard touchdown as time ran out to lift the Vikings to victory over New Orleans in last season's playoffs. Now the Vikings have a new quarterback in Kirk Cousins, who was elated by the news that Diggs is under contract through 2023.

Postcard from Camp: Let the games begin

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

Fans weren't allowed in to Tuesday's practice at Olivet Nazarene University, but hopefully none of you had any FOMO while being kept away. Matt Nagy declined to say who will and won't play on Thursday, but Jordan Howard went on NFL Network later in the day and said he won't play and doesn't think Mitch Trubisky will, either.
