In recent years, Stefon Diggs has become one of the most popular and successful wide receivers in the NFL. As a result, he has often been at the center of trade rumors and speculation about his future with the Buffalo Bills.

Recently, Diggs took to social media to discuss whether his success is essential to Josh Allen’s success. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Bills have decided to trade Diggs to the Texans. In exchange, Buffalo will receive a 2025 second-round pick originally from Minnesota. Houston will receive Diggs, a 2024 sixth-round pick, and a 2025 fifth-round pick.

Despite this news, many fans are wondering what led the Bills to make this decision. It is likely that they believe that by trading Diggs before June 1st, they can avoid paying him $31 million in dead cap charges in 2024. Additionally, it is possible that they want to free up some cap space to invest in other areas of their team.

Regardless of why they made this move, it is clear that Diggs has had an impressive career with the Bills so far. In his first season with the team in 2020, he led the league in catches (127) and yards (1535). He also surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for six consecutive seasons – an impressive feat for any wide receiver.

However, as with all players on any team, there comes a point when their contract becomes too expensive and it makes sense for them to move on – even if they have been successful with their current team. This appears to be what happened with Diggs – even though he was still under contract through 2027 – the Bills have decided that now is a good time for him to move on and join another team as another weapon for their quarterback CJ Stroud with the Texans
