Stefon Diggs wanted a new beginning and apparently helped get just that with the use of social media.

Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated explored the timeline of the trade that sent Diggs and a seventh-round pick from the Minnesota Vikings to the Buffalo Bills for a first-, fifth- and sixth-round pick in the 2020 draft, as well as a 2021 fourth-round pick, and noted the wide receiver's cryptic tweet helped facilitate the deal.

Diggs tweeted "It's time for a new beginning" after the Vikings signed quarterback Kirk Cousins to an extension, which led to a number of teams calling Minnesota to check in on his availability.
