A Change of Scenery: The Buffalo Bills’ Decision to Trade Stefon Diggs and What it Means for Their Future Success

Texans acquire Stefon Diggs in trade with Bills

The Buffalo Bills have recently traded wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans. In exchange, they will receive a 2025 second-round pick that originally belonged to Minnesota. Additionally, the Texans will also receive a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick.

By trading Diggs before June 1, the Bills will face a $31 million dead cap charge in 2024. Diggs is currently signed through 2027 and has been an integral part of the team’s success since his arrival in 2019. During his first season with the Bills, he led the league in catches (127) and yards (1535). Although his production dipped slightly in 2023, he still managed to record at least 100 catches (107) and 1,000 yards (1,183) for the fourth consecutive year. He has surpassed 1,000 yards receiving for the last six seasons.

Despite his impressive statistics, the Bills have decided to part ways with Diggs, giving the Texans another valuable weapon for their rising second-year quarterback Cody Bellinger. This move is likely due to the fact that Diggs had some issues on and off the field during his time with the team and that he was looking for a change of scenery.

Throughout his career spanning over a decade with four different teams including Houston Texans, Diggs has amassed an impressive record of 86 receptions for 9844 yards and 68 touchdowns which makes him one of NFL’s most versatile receivers. It will be interesting to see how this move impacts both his own performance as well as Josh Allen’s success moving forward.

Overall, this trade marks an end chapter for one of Buffalo’s top playmakers and opens up new opportunities for them moving forward into next season.
