Former Maryland wide receiver Stefon Diggs made a splash in his preseason NFL debut with the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night, returning a punt 62 yards and nearly scoring a touchdown.
In fact, it looked like a touchdown to many but even after an official review, the call on the field stood and the ball was placed at Pittsburgh's one-yard line. Minnesota would score shortly after.
A number of former teammates of Diggs at Maryland watched the game and it was clear at media day on Monday which side of the fence they stood on.
Randy Edsall, head coach: "I saw it. I said, 'You know what? It looks like he's got a chance to take this one back for a good distance,' then saw him do that. It's just reminiscent of what he did here but I was hoping that he could have got a touchdown out of it but, you know, just great effort. And it just shows what kind of a dynamic playmaker he can be."
Caleb Rowe, QB: "I saw the punt return. I thought he scored. I text him every now and then and we talk and catch up but they're filling big shoes right now."
Levern Jacobs, WR: "I did [think it was a touchdown]. I'm happy for that man and he deserves everything he gets so I think he's going to do some good things in the NFL."
Will Likely, CB: "It's great, man. I think they should have called him a touchdown, man. I'm kind of sick he didn't get that touchdown, though."
Quinton Jefferson, DL: "I think he scored. I think he scored. It was a bad call. They need to give him his touchdown."
