Earlier this week, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month after pulling down an NFL-high three interceptions (including a pick-six) in as many games to open the 2021 season.
“It’s an honor, I really appreciate it you know, but at the same time I gotta focus, you know? I want to win it again, you know? I want to keep winning it, and just keep looking at it that way, in that sense,” Diggs said of the award, via NBCDFW.com.
Diggs has the right intention, and for a second-year player ascending to star status, his message is completely understandable.
If not correctable.
“Cowboys QB Dak Prescott congratulated CB Trevon Diggs today on winning NFC Defensive Player of Month. Then told Diggs it doesn’t mean anything,” Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday.
