Seattle Seahawks get clear locker room star in...


In a surprising move, the Seattle Seahawks acquired defensive back Quandre Diggs from the Detroit Lions on Tuesday.

That move, which came seemingly out of the blue, caused many to be shocked – especially Diggs’ former teammates in Detroit.

There is plenty of tape to show what the Seahawks newest defensive back will do on the field. When Diggs straps his helmet on, he will do whatever he needs to in order to help his team win.

That is what his new coach noticed right off the bat.

“I’m thrilled to add him because he is a runner and hitter,” coach Pete Carroll said on Wednesday. “I’m sure our guys will see that in him too. I think he was captain of the team, too. That’s a big tribute too. I think he’s held in high regard by those guys.”

What the tape won’t show is the extent to which Diggs is loved in the locker room.

However, Twitter did a fine job telling that story. Many former Lions teammates reacted on social media with a similar message, which is exemplified by fellow defensive back and return specialist Jamal Agnew.

Agnew was far from the only player to take to social media to share his feelings. There was a real outpour.

“I’ll stay FaceTiming those guys all the time,” Diggs responded when asked about the Twitter reaction. “It’s just tough when you’re in the middle of the season, the middle of the grind with your guys. I could see when it’s something you expected, but when it just comes out of nowhere it’s tough. But those guys will continue to be the great players that they are.”

Social media also gives a hint as to how Diggs will fit in Seattle – he and wide receiver Tyler Lockett are close friends.

Sunday starts a new journey for Diggs. He is expected to suit up as he and his new teammates take on the Falcons in Atlanta on Sunday, October 27 at 10:00 a.m. PT.
