His 4,623 yards rank 14th in the NFL over that time period. Diggs caught 63 passes for 1,130 yards last season, averaging 17.9 yards a reception, fourth-most in the NFL.
Diggs signed a five-year contract extension with the Vikings prior to the 2018 season worth $72 million. He has four years remaining on his deal and, according to Spotrac, will count $11.5 milion on the team's 2020 salary cap.
