Jason Whitlock: "Stefon Diggs showed up to mini-camp to cause this problem and he knows he has leverage over Josh Allen because of their skin color differences. He knows there’s a good chance that he can get someone on ESPN to take up his calls. He knows he can get out of there because if I’m Buffalo, the last thing I want is my star receiver taking any kind of racial potshots at my quarterback. Carson Wentz ran into that problem in Philadelphia and I think that contributed to why Carson Wentz looks like utter trash after looking so good early in his career. I think he got mentally wounded by what happened with his wide receiver teammates— Alshon Jeffrey was basically taking potshots at him, and somewhat played the racial card on him, The last thing Buffalo wants is for Josh Allen to get caught in those crosshairs, and they will trade Stefon Diggs to avoid that. In this woke social media environment, Josh Allen just coming out of college got caught in the racial crosshairs. The only reason why Buffalo drafted him so high was because ‘HE'S A WHITE GUY! THERE WAS RACISM! IF HE WERE BLACK, EVERYBODY WOULD LOOK AT HIS COMPLETION PERCENTAGE AT WYOMING!'… There was a racial component to the criticism of Josh Allen, and that it was ‘White privilege’ that allowed him to be drafted that high. In these locker room environments and in this current media environment you know and I know White coaches walk on eggshells, and White players walk on eggshells. Look what happened to Drew Brees in New Orleans all over the National Anthem. Michael Thomas threw Drew Brees under the bus and people piled on. Carson Wentz was a ‘Jesus freak’ and the wide receivers didn’t really vibe with him. I’m making the prediction that Stefon Diggs forces his way out of Buffalo.” (Full Segment Above)
Watch Jason Whitlock of ‘Fearless’ discuss his theory on why Stefon Diggs is trying to force himself out of Buffalo and why he believes the Bills will ultimately have no choice but to trade the disgruntled All-Pro wide receiver.
Check out the segment above as Whitlock details why he thinks the Bills are terrified of a disconcerting racial narrative spun by Diggs going public, and says the Bills will cut ties with the three-time Pro Bowler in order to simply avoid the calamitous PR a storyline like that would bring.
