Tyreek Hill in a recent interview spoke about the main reason he wanted to leave the Chiefs was because of targets. This brings up the conversation of who are the biggest divas on a football team. LaVar Arrington, Brady Quinn, and Jonas Knox talk about why the wide receiver position is the most diva-prone position in the NFL.

LaVar Arrington: “Like most people think that quarterbacks are divas. Quarterbacks are quarterbacks. That's how we look at quarterbacks...The divas are the receivers and the corners. Those are the divas. Think about who's the biggest diva in coaching right now. Think about what's the first thing that comes to mind (Deion Sanders). Okay. What position? (Cornerback)Yeah…You know what I mean. Like, the biggest divas are receivers and corners because they know there's no help. It's just them...They don't rely on anyone else other than the quarterback. Put the ball where I can get it. That's it. I don't need you to be accurate. Just put it where I can get it and throw it to me. Corners and receivers feel like we have no help, there's nothing there. What we do is what we do. It's on an island…This is us. It's our game. They're the ones. This is our game. We're going to win or lose because of what I do today. And I can't say that they're wrong.”
