Quandre Diggs in a league of his own with 17 interceptions

Quandre Diggs may end up being one of the worst trades in Detroit Lions history. There’s this whole 1958 trade of quarterback Bobby Layne who made the Hall of Fame 10 years later, so that probably takes the top spot.

But second, maybe?

Diggs had yet another interception, his third this season as he remains the only player on the Seattle Seahawks with a pick this year. Also, he’s officially the most consistent defensive back in the NFL over the last five seasons.

Five consecutive years at three or more INTs, and plenty of time to add on in 2021. He is the only player in the NFL to do so over the last five seasons.

Trevon Diggs of the Dallas Cowboys is off to a hot start, with three INTs his rookie year and now seven in 2021, but our Quandre has shown remarkable consistency in his backfield prowess.

He’s been the only legitimate turnover threat on this team for two years, and is going to be financially unfortunate for the franchise that he was not given a contract extension this offseason. For Diggs, it’s all good for him. If he makes back-to-back Pro Bowls at the end of the year somebody will give him a whole cart full of money, whether that’s Seattle or somewhere else.

Two of Diggs’ picks this year have come against the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams. With two games still to play against the Arizona Cardinals and (potentially) the free-flying Kyler Murray - 7 INTs already - Diggs has a chance for the hat trick against the NFC West.
