Cowboys rookie Trevon Diggs’ secret weapon

Cowboys rookie Trevon Diggs’ secret weapon

Dallas Cowboys rookie cornerback Trevon Diggs has a secret weapon in his quest to start in the league right away: his NFL wide receiver brother Stefon Diggs.

In an offseason filled with turbulence from COVID-19, the advice Trevon has received from his brother allows him to navigate training camp much easier.

“(Stefon) has been a blessing,” Diggs said in a press conference. “I call him every day, after everything I do, after every meeting. Just trying to get tips, things he went through that he can help me on.”

While advice about camp can help prepare Diggs mentally, it can only go so far due to the physical aspect of the game. This is why the two brothers spent their offseason in Miami to prepare for the upcoming season.

“He’s been a real help for me this offseason, just trying to prepare me for the NFL – getting my body right, getting my conditioning right and doing everything I can to be able to compete in this league,” Trevon said.

Stefon, a fifth-year veteran who got dealt to the Buffalo Bills this offseason, is clearly trying to carve a path for his brother in the pros. This was evident in the support Stefon gave his brother on draft night.

“Lil bro just got drafted to America’s team.. that’s tough,” Stefon tweeted after the Cowboys selected Trevon with the No. 51 pick.

While there hasn’t been any on-field action during training camp so far, Trevon has taken this motivation from his brother well. He already brings an array of talent at the corner position, but his confidence is really showing out in the early days of Cowboys camp.

“I’m just getting adjusted and trying to compete every day,” Trevon said. “That’s my goal, to compete for a starting job and compete for a starting spot.”
