What he CERTAINLY is already is the first Vikings player to appear in-studio at the Star Tribune for a recording of the Access Vikings podcast. He was in the building this morning and recorded a couple of segments while offering tremendous insights (and good humor, too).
You’ll have to listen for his thoughts on Sam Bradford, his idea for an all-Vikings remake of “Love Jones” or his thoughts on Old Bay seasoning. Right here and now, I’ll transcribe Diggs’ podcast thoughts on teammate Adrian Peterson and whether he thinks No. 28 will play again this season:
“From my point of view, that’s one of the freakiest athletes in the world,” Diggs said. “And I think you’ll see him soon.”
Diggs was smiling a lot during that line of questioning. Podcast co-host Matt Vensel reminded Diggs that Peterson said Monday he plans to return for Week 16 against Green Bay.
Diggs smiled again. “When I say one of the special athletes in the world … you’ll see him.”
There’s a small part of me that thinks Peterson could even play this Sunday (at home) against Indianapolis. At the very least, this is more evidence that we will see Peterson again at some point in 2016.
