Is it a real NFL offseason if it isn't filled with drama and trade speculation, especially from wide receivers?

There's plenty of that going on right now, and the latest comes from Stefon Diggs, who prompted trade rumors after sending out a cryptic tweet Friday morning. This, of course, caught the attention of many fans around the league, especially those who have a significant need for a player of Diggs' caliber, like the Patriots.

The Bills' receiver isn't new to controversy throughout his career, but especially since he was traded to Buffalo in 2020. Diggs has had his fair share of drama, mainly stemming from his unhappiness with the team falling short in the playoffs, and some of that has been seen during games over the last few years.

It was an issue in 2023, as well, even before the season began. An alleged miscommunication between Diggs and head coach Sean McDermott created several unflattering headlines about the receiver, which seemed to add more fuel to his already unsatisfied tenure.

Fast-forward to this offseason, and it doesn't appear that things have smoothed over, with one of his latest social media posts claiming he is "ready for whatever." This elicited a big reaction from fans online, who believed this was his way of hinting (again) that he wanted out of Buffalo.

It could be a harmless post that has nothing to do with his football career, but this isn't the first time he's made a post to one of his social media profiles with a bigger meaning connected to the Bills.

We'll likely never know what Diggs is implying with his tweet, but it should spike the Patriots' interest, as they could benefit from having him on the offense. Although it's doubtful that the Bills would even consider them for a potential trade, it wouldn't hurt to inquire.

At the very least, Patriots fans can enjoy that not everything is perfect for the divisional rival, whose fans have taken a strong liking to clown the 6-time Super Bowl champion team for undergoing a rebuild since Tom Brady's departure.
