Former Maryland wide receiver Stefon Diggs has officially signed his first rookie contract with the Minnesota Vikings, the team announced on Thursday.
According to a report from Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the deal is worth $2.507 million over four years and is not guaranteed. He also receives a signing bonus of more than $227,000.
Diggs entered the NFL Draft after his junior season at Maryland, forgoing his final year of college eligibility. He was selected by Minnesota in the fifth round, 146th overall.
Though he slipped into that fifth round, Diggs still brings value to Minnesota. His best chance at seeing consistent time early will be on special teams, as the team sees what he can do as a pass catcher.
He touched on the subject during a conference call with the media after being drafted.
"I am going to play all positions that they want me to play," he said. "Anything they ask me to do, I am going to bring it to the table. I want to contribute any way that I can to this team.
"As far as my game, I’m a play maker and a dominant competitor, outside of the game, on the practice field and in the game no matter where I am I like to compete at all costs and I love to win so that’s the type of attitude I bring to any situation. Now that I am a part of the family I look forward to working my butt off and doing everything I can."
