The Minnesota Vikings don't expect to see wide receiver Stefon Diggs wearing different colors in 2020 despite his dissatisfaction with the team's passing game last year.

"There is no reason to anticipate Stefon Diggs is not going to be a member of the Minnesota Vikings," general manager Rick Spielman said Tuesday, according to Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune.

Trade chatter surrounding Diggs became stronger last season after the pass-catcher confirmed he was frustrated in October. The 26-year-old didn't openly request a trade but admitted "there's truth to all rumors" when asked about a report that his teammates weren't sure whether he wanted to remain in Minnesota.

The wideout deleted all Vikings pictures from his Instagram account earlier in February.

Diggs, who's due to make $10.9 million in salary this season, signed a five-year, $72-million contract extension with the Vikings in July 2018. Trading him would create a $9-million dead-money cap hit while clearing $5.5 million in cap space.

A fifth-round pick in 2015, Diggs led the Vikings in receptions (63), receiving yards (1,130), and touchdowns (six) in 2019. He's topped 1,000 receiving yards in each of the past two campaigns.
