Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs was named NFC Defensive Player of the Month earlier this week after catching an NFL-high three interceptions (including a pick-six) in three games to start the 2021 season. “It’s an honor, and I really appreciate it, but at the same time, I have to focus, you know?”
“It’s an honor, and I really appreciate it, but at the same time, I have to focus, you know?” I’d like to win it once more, you know? “I just want to keep winning it, and just keep looking at it that way,” Diggs said of the award, according to NBCDFW.com.
Diggs has the right intentions, and his message is completely understandable for a second-year player ascending to stardom. If not correctable,
. “Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott congratulated CB Trevon Diggs on winning NFC Defensive Player of the Month today. Then he told Diggs it didn’t mean anything,” the Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken reported on Wednesday. Diggs’ response?

Parsons Gives Diggs High Praise
Diggs is establishing himself as a shutdown corner who is glued to an opponent’s top wide receiver each week. While some of his teammates, such as Prescott, prefer to keep him grounded, others, such as first-round rookie linebacker Micah Parsons, can’t seem to stop themselves from pumping him up. “Tre is a ballplayer, man,” Parsons said earlier this week, according to NFL.com. “I told him that I’ve already started my MVP, All-Pro corner [campaign]for Tre Diggs. He’s just [so]helpful to this defense. He’s making it a lot easier for guys like me to reach the quarterback. I’m overjoyed for him.
“He brings that dog to practice every day.” I believe he’ll be pitted against CeeDee [Lamb] and Amari [Cooper]. I mean, there’s a lot more to it than that. Ced [Wilson] is out there, don’t you see him? Look at Noah [Brown]. There isn’t a weak link in that receiver corps in my opinion. You’ve also got [Michael Gallup]. So, Tre, every day is a challenge, and you must push yourself to the limit. I believe he is prepared for the situation. I don’t expect anything less from him because he said he’ll be the best. ”
