Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs will soon need a considerable raise from the $1.9 million he'll earn in 2018 on the final year of his rookie contract.

However, the fifth-round pick in 2015 is focusing only on the season ahead.

"This is a business and there's a lot going on," Diggs said Wednesday on "PFT Live" with Mike Florio. "Being a small portion of it I'm definitely sitting back just working each and every day and letting that stuff handle itself. I have people who will handle that. For me, it's just coming in and working every day. It's not about any contract or anything like that, I'm trying to win. That's all I’m concerned about."

Diggs put up a career-best eight touchdowns in 2017 while helping the Vikings advance to the NFC Championship Game, adding 207 yards and scoring once in two postseason contests.

The 24-year-old's 2,472 career receiving yards rank second to Oakland Raiders wideout Amari Cooper among receivers from the 2015 draft class.
