After Being Released By Seattle Seahawks, Quandre Diggs Posts Iconic Line From Ice Cube’s ‘Friday’ Movie

NFL Pro Bowl player Quandre Diggs was recently hit with some bad news when he was informed that he was cut from his team, the Seattle Seahawks. But, in response to the news, taking it in stride, he posted a gif showing Ice Cube from his signature role in the cult movie, “Friday” with the words, “Got fired on my day off. Damn.”

NFL.com reported that the Seahawks released three players from the roster to clear some salary cap space (the maximum amount of money in players’ cumulative salaries that a team can carry for the season) from their coffers. The players were defensive backs Jamal Adams and Diggs and tight end Will Dissly.

Diggs, who is a three-time Pro Bowler, used some humor to break the news to his X followers. In posting that photo of Ice Cube from a scene in the comedy hit, “Friday,” for those who may not know, Cube’s character, Craig Jones, was infamously fired on his day off, after being caught on camera stealing from the job. That may be one of the most memorable situations in the comedic movie.

The Seahawks did acknowledge and thank Diggs (nickname Nino) for his time with the team with a post on the X platform (formerly known as Twitter).

Diggs was drafted in 2015 in the sixth by the Detroit Lions after playing his collegiate career at the University of Texas at Austin. During the 2019 season, the Lions traded him to the Seahawks. During his stay in Seattle, he was selected to play in three straight Pro Bowls from 2020 to 2022. The past season wasn’t a great one for Diggs as he only had 95 tackles and one interception while starting in 17 games.

USA Today reported that he was released so the team could save $11 million in salary cap space.
