Stefon Diggs' brother sparked a flurry of speculation on Saturday when he posted a picture of the Vikings ace on Instagram wearing a Washington Redskins uniform.

Trevon Diggs also shared the picture as an Instagram story with the words "Bring him home," a reference to Diggs' Maryland upbringing.

It led to wild, excited speculation among Washington fans that maybe the ace receiver would be reunited with Case Keenum in D.C.

The picture was then deleted by Diggs' brother, while ESPN's Adam Schefter provided some pretty emphatic rejection of the notion that the Vikings will trade the man behind the "Minneapolis Miracle."

"F--- no," was what Schefter was told by a "source" when he asked if Diggs would be traded to Washington.

Even though the Vikings have little cap space to work with, in Diggs and Thielen they have one of the most devastating receiving corps in the entire NFL.

Provided they do some work beefing up the O-line in the Draft and whoever's left in free agency, you can expect Diggs to once again be one of the leading receivers in the league in 2019.
