Diggs goes to the Bills in a blockbuster deal

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Stefon Diggs is finally getting his wish. He wanted a trade during last season.

However, nothing materialized. On the first day of legal tampering before the start of the NFL free agency frenzy, Diggs was traded to the Buffalo Bills.

In addition, besides receiving a top flight wide receiver, the Bills are adding a 2020 seven-round draft pick.

The Bills have stockpiled picks with three coming in the 2020 NFL Draft. They have received a first-round draft pick, fifth-round draft pick, and a sixth-round draft pick in April’s draft.

Also, they will receive a 2021 fourth-round draft pick. The proposed deal will become finalized on March 18th when the new league-year started.

Diggs joins a roster that already features Cole Beasley and John Brown, who signed with the team as free agents last off-season. He will be with the team for the foreseeable future, as he has four-years, $47.5 million left on his deal.

The 26-year-old — who will be 27 on November 29th — brings a No. 1 wide receiver to the Bills. It also gives Josh Allen a proven deep threat, as well.

He has had 1,000-yard seasons the past two seasons. In 2019, he appeared in 15 games, including 15 starts. He had 63 receptions for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns.

In 2018, he had his first-career 100-reception season with 102 with 1,021 yards and nine touchdowns.

In his career, he has appeared in 70 games, including 63 starts. He has 365 receptions for 4,623 yards and 30 touchdowns.
