“He’s doing stuff. I’m really excited about him,” Carroll said. “As a good player that’s got experience and good wherewithal and all that, he helps other players. He’s doing it. The confidence that comes from knowing he knows the game and knows what’s going on.”

Carroll also said the rest of the defense is feeding off Diggs and what he brings to the team.

“It’s the factor that really good players bring. Guys around them play better,” Carroll said.

Numerous Lions players were dismayed at the team’s decision to trade Diggs, and werequite vocal about it. It’s easy to see why with the impact he’s already brought to Seattle.
