Both Buffalo Bills star Stefon Diggs and his brother, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs, have openly discussed how much they’d love to play together on the same team one day, although the structure of wide receiver’s $96 million extension means quarterback Josh Allen‘s No. 1 target isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
Diggs announced before the start of the 2023 NFL season that he plans to retire in Buffalo, but after the hot mic video featuring Bills reporter Maddy Glab talking about his brother made its rounds on social media, Trevon is once again pushing his brother to leave Orchard Park.
Trevon reposted the viral video on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Thursday, September 14, and wrote, “Tuh! They turn on you so quick. Gotta get bro somewhere safe.”
The Cowboys star’s post quickly went viral as Dallas fans would love to see Diggs land in Texas. Other people defended Glab since her comments seemed to be made in jest when taken out of context. Glab was heard saying in the video, “There’s no control over Stefon Diggs. Dudes gonna do what he wants to do. He’ll look in my face and say F-you. That’s how he treats everybody.”
While BroBible’s Dov Kleiman perceived her comments as “talking badly” badly about Diggs, News 8 reporter AJ Feldman posted, “If anyone is caught off guard by the fact that Stefon Diggs marches by the beat of his own drum and will jokingly swear at people he is friendly with, you really haven’t been paying attention to anything at all.”
UPDATE: Diggs reacted to the hot mic video on Thursday evening, denying he ever talked to Glab that way. He posted, “The audio shared was very hurtful. And was insulting to my character and to how I was raised. I’ve always treated people how I want to be treated. I greet everyone with smiles and respect. From the people in our cafe to the people that keep our building in clean & in order.”
“The media or fans may confuse my competitiveness that they witness on the field as who I am as a person,” he wrote in a second post. “But off the field Id never treat anyone how she described & have never said anything remotely close to that to her.”
“Idk why it was said, but this is an example of why people don’t want to deal with the media,” Diggs continued. It’s hard to fight the preconceived notions people have about you. Regardless of ever having a personal experience with them.”
“We get you all have a job. And I respect it, but please remember I’m a human just like you. And if I ever made you or anyone else feel like you can’t approach me. I apologize ❤️. Diggs closed his thread by writing, “Time to lock back in… forward focused 🙏🏾.”
Maddy Glab Offered a Formal Apology for her Comments About Stefon Diggs
“I am very sorry for what I said and meant no ill will,” Glab wrote. “I respect the hell out of Stefon Diggs, and he has been one of my favorite players to cover. He has great character and treats us media with lots of respect.”
Glab also explained the full context of what led to her comments being made in the first place.
“Media was waiting for players to come out for press conferences when a reporter jokingly told me to go get Stefon Diggs,” Glab wrote. “I said I don’t have control over him — Stef marches to the beat of his own drum and I love that about him. He has a playful relationship with our video department, so that’s why I said he probably wouldn’t say yes to me grabbing him for an interview.”
Stefon Diggs Responded to Michael Irvin’s Criticism
Diggs is quick to ‘nip s*** in the bud’ when there are rumors flying around. Most recently, the 29-year-old receiver was called out by Hall of Famer Irvin Johnson for telling Allen to “be smart” on the sidelines amid the quarterback’s awful performance against the New York Jets on Monday Night Football.
During Tuesday’s episode of “Undisputed,” the sportscaster yelled, “Stop telling that man, ‘Be smart, be smart,’ because you’re telling everybody else, ‘He’s dumb, he’s dumb, he’s dumb.’ Stop doing that! Troy [Aikman] would have called me into a room and hit me in my mouth and I would have said, ‘Thank you Troy you are right.’ Stop messing with this man’s [Allen’s] confidence.”
Diggs responded to Irvin’s comments during an appearance on Von Miller’s “The VonCast” on Wednesday, September 13. “I’m like, what are you talking about? People garnish things from a game and have their own opinion about x, y, z. (But) like, what are you talking about?” Diggs said, noting how he tells everyone on the team to “be smart.”
“I say this to the quarterback, I say this to the running backs, I say this to the receivers, to the o-line. When you see me pointing to my head, I say let’s play smart.
“I get it, but it was 40 years ago when you (Irvin) was running routes,” Diggs continued. “I respect the OGs but I feel like, damn, some stuff is worth conversation and other stuff it’s like – ‘All right, all right, all right old man.”
