This is where Quandre Diggs needs to stay for the next three years. Diggs himself recently said that there’s “no question” he would like to remain a member of the Seahawks if he is well compensated. And that is how it should be. NFL players get paid to play a game and this is their chance to make generational money.
Seattle needs to pay Diggs well as he deserves it. In two-and-a-half years with Seattle, Diggs has 13 interceptions and this easily leads the team. He was third on the team in tackles this year and he was fourth in 2020. In both of the full seasons Diggs has played for the Seahawks he has made the Pro Bowl. This year he was voted as a starter at free safety for the Pro Bowl.
For Diggs, he has had his best seasons while with Seattle. He has had career-highs in tackles (2021), interceptions (2020 and 2021), passes defended (2020) and missed-tackles percentage (2020). Plus, Diggs appears to have made strong connections with teammates.
When Diggs broke his leg in the final game of this year, he had to stay behind in Arizona for surgery. Receiver Tyler Lockett stayed with him. This is the kind of culture that Pete Carroll has built in Seattle where the players mostly care about each other and the organization treats the players well. Hopefully Diggs will choose to stay in part because of that and the Seahawks need him to stay because Quandre Diggs helps Seattle win football games.
