Diggs produced 64 tackles, 10 pass breakups and five interceptions over 16 regular-season games during the 2020 season. Diggs was outstanding for the Seahawks this season, starting every game and posting career highs in both pass breakups and interceptions. The 27-year-old earned Pro Bowl honors for the first time in his career as a result. Diggs has one year remaining on his contract with the Seahawks. His role in 2021 may be slightly altered if the team doesn't re-sign Jamal Adams (shoulder/finger).
Diggs posted six tackles (four solo), a pass breakup and an interception in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Rams. Diggs has hauled in five interceptions through 15 games, as he sits fourth in the league in the category. The sixth-year pro has added 58 tackles and 10 pass breakups. As a result, he's been named to his first Pro Bowl, joining fellow safety Jamal Adams with the honors.
Diggs was ejected in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Patriots for a helmet-to-helmet hit on N'Keal Harry, Mike Giardi of NFL Network reports. Lano Hill is expected to cover for Diggs the rest of the way, with Marquise Blair also getting some looks at safety when he isn't performing nickel corner duties. Diggs will likely be fined for his hit, but a suspension is unlikely.
Diggs, who made eight tackles over two playoff games, finished the 2019 season with 41 tackles, three pass breakups and three interceptions over 10 games between the Lions and Seahawks. The Lions traded Diggs to the Seahawks after five games, but Diggs only managed to play in five games with Seattle due to hamstring and ankle injuries. Diggs made timely tackles for the Seahawks and ran an interception back for a touchdown, and he was a consistent every-down starter when healthy. The 26-year-old has two years remaining on his contract at a reasonable cap hit, so he's in line for another year as a starter in 2020. His role in the Seattle scheme offers limited IDP value, however.
Diggs (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's playoff bout in Philadelphia, Liz Matthews of USA Today reports. Diggs resumed practicing without restrictions Thursday, a sign that his ankle issue is no longer limiting him. The 26-year-old is on track to draw his usual start at free safety during Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Eagles.
