Stefon Diggs 2025 Landing Spots: Ravens, Jets, and Chiefs Among Potential Destinations

Stefon Diggs' run with the Texans could be brief after Houston shortened his contract. Where could the veteran WR sign in 2025?

The Houston Texans fortified their offense by acquiring Stefon Diggs from the Buffalo Bills last week, but the veteran wide receiver may only stick in the AFC South for one year.

Under the terms of the trade, the Texans agreed to rip up the final three seasons of Diggs’ existing contract, ensuring he’ll hit free agency next offseason. Where could Diggs sign in 2025?

Where Will Stefon Diggs Play in 2025?

Houston inserted multiple void years in Diggs’ reworked deal, meaning he’ll carry just a $5.876 million cap charge during the upcoming season. The Texans will absorb nearly $17 million in dead money if they don’t re-sign Diggs in 2025.

Assuming the 30-year-old pass catcher reaches free agency, he could be among the most attractive WR options on the market. High-end wideouts like Justin Jefferson, Ja’Marr Chase, CeeDee Lamb, and Amon-Ra St. Brown are technically scheduled to become free agents next offseason but will almost certainly be extended or franchised.

Let’s run through Diggs’ best 2025 landing spots.

Baltimore Ravens

Diggs was born and raised an hour outside Baltimore and went to college at the University of Maryland. A homecoming with the Ravens could make sense, especially given that Lamar Jackson and Co. are competitive every season. Diggs is unlikely to sign with a rebuilding team at this point in his career.

Although Baltimore drafted a potential first-round star in Zay Flowers in 2024, it could use more help on its WR depth chart. Odell Beckham Jr. remains a free agent, while the Ravens could decline former first-round pick Rashod Bateman’s 2025 fifth-year option following three disappointing and injury-ridden seasons.

New York Jets

Could Diggs be a 2025 fit in New York? It probably depends on how the upcoming campaign goes.

If Aaron Rodgers looks like his old self as he recovers from last season’s Achilles injury, and the Jets make the playoffs, they could try to bring back most of the same roster in 2025 while adding a veteran piece like Diggs. Mike Williams signed a one-year deal this offseason and will be a free agent next year.

But if Gang Green falls apart, and general manager Joe Douglas and head coach Robert Saleh are fired, the Jets will likely enter a rebuilding phase. Diggs probably wouldn’t want to head back to the AFC East and join a non-competitive New York club in that scenario.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys were the quietest NFL team during free agency, signing just one external free agent — LB Eric Kendricks — since the market opened in mid-March. That could change next season, when Dallas is projected to have more than $100 million in cap space.

Lamb is due a long-term extension and will be the Cowboys’ WR1 for the foreseeable future. However, the club will likely need a new WR2 in 2025.

Brandin Cooks will be a free agent next offseason, and 2023 third-round pick Jalen Tolbert might not be ready to step up. Diggs could be a Cowboys fit whether Dak Prescott is the team’s quarterback or not.

Kansas City Chiefs

Although the Chiefs added free agent WR Hollywood Brown this offseason, he’s only in on a one-year deal. Rashee Rice will still be around in 2025 (legal troubles aside), and Kansas City could draft an early-round pass catcher later this month, but Diggs may take a one-year deal to play alongside Patrick Mahomes.

Diggs would almost make more sense for the Chiefs if Travis Kelce retires after the upcoming season. Both receivers are savvy veterans with the awareness to create space and get open on underneath routes against zone coverage, a trait Mahomes and Andy Reid clearly value.

Arizona Cardinals

Diggs probably won’t be interested in signing with the Cardinals if they only win four games for a second consecutive campaign in 2024. But if Arizona takes a leap this season under second-year head coach Jonathan Gannon, the desert might start to look appealing.

The Cards lost Brown to the Chiefs in free agency and don’t have a WR1. That could change in the 2024 NFL Draft, when Arizona possibly selects a first-round pass catcher like Ohio State’s Marvin Harrison Jr., LSU’s Malik Nabers, or Washington’s Rome Odunze.

Even then, Diggs could be a priority for an Arizona squad that might be looking for a veteran WR2 to pair with its younger star.
