Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs deactivates Twitter after getting cooked in training camp
Dallas Cowboys’ cornerback Trevon Diggs has become quite the polarizing player.
Although he led the NFL in interceptions last season, he also allowed the most yards in coverage and was the eighth most targeted corner by opposing QBs. To simplify — he’s the Jameis Winston of cornerbacks.
As training camp gets underway around the league, videos of drills will begin to circulate on the internet. Some of the most recent clips have come out of Dallas, with Diggs getting first-team reps in team drills and one-on-one reps with the top receivers.
The first video shows Diggs getting beat by newcomer James Washingon. Dallas fans will be quick to let you know that it was zone coverage and that Washington wasn’t Diggs’ primary assignment.
I’ll let you be the judge.

The next video was Diggs getting burned by CeeDee Lamb on a fly route.
Yes, Lamb is an exceptional talent, but Diggs wasn’t even in the same vicinity as the ball.

The final clip to make the rounds was Diggs getting beat yet again, this time by third-string WR Simi Fehoko, whom I hadn’t even heard of before yesterday.
Apparently, he runs a 4.4 40-time, so Diggs didn’t even stand a chance.

As you can imagine, the All-Pro CB has been getting dragged on the internet over the last 24 hours, resulting in Diggs deactivating his Twitter account for the time being.
All jokes aside, mental health is nothing to play with, and I can understand why Diggs would want to block out the hate. However, if Dallas fans didn’t overhype him to no end, we wouldn’t even be here. One pick off a batted ball and we have to hear about how “elite” Diggs is. No thanks.
Regardless of how many interceptions he gets, Dallas will undoubtedly fold in the postseason, as is tradition. Here’s to another season of watching Trevon Diggs get fried every week.
