Could Stefon Diggs Leave Buffalo This Offseason? Star Wide Receiver ‘Ready To Go No Matter Which Way It Goes’

Bills WR Stefon Diggs talked to the media for the first time in weeks, sharing his thoughts on whether or not he will return to Buffalo next season.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs just completed his fourth season with the team after being traded from the Minnesota Vikings. He has been named to the NFL’s Pro Bowl in each season with the Bills — AFC East champions in all four seasons.

After last season’s postseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, there was speculation that Diggs was unhappy in Buffalo. Diggs missed the start of the team’s mandatory minicamp in June.

Stefon Diggs Breaks Silence on His Future

Diggs talked about his future with ESPN’s Stephen Holder at the Pro Bowl on Friday. It was the first time he’s spoken with the media since before the playoffs started. He did not speak with the media after the two Bills postseason games.

When asked about his future with the Bills, Diggs said, “I feel like I take it day by day. There’s a lot of changes going on, a lot of things going on. I can’t put the carriage before the horse, you know what I’m saying? But I got a great offseason in front of me to put a lot of work in and kind of build around what we got and what we’re doing.”

Diggs said, “I’m ready to go no matter which way it goes,” when asked if he wanted to remain with the Bills. He added, “I can’t tell you what the future holds, but I’m still being me.”

Diggs has four years remaining on his contract with the Bills, but the team has a potential out after next season. His salary will count for almost $28 million on Buffalo’s salary cap in 2024. He restructured his contract last offseason to create over $5 million of cap space for the team.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane said last month that he still sees Diggs as a No. 1 receiver in the league. Beane added, “He’s super competitive. He’s going to work his tail off this offseason. I know there are various reasons or questions on this or his production.”

Diggs’ Success With the Buffalo Bills

Diggs played his first five seasons with the Vikings after being selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He had 365 catches for 4,623 yards and 30 touchdowns in 70 games in Minnesota.

The Vikings traded Diggs to the Bills in March 2020 for four draft picks, including a first-round pick that led to Minnesota selecting Justin Jefferson.

The Bills wanted a top wide receiver for quarterback Josh Allen, and Diggs has been that during his time in Buffalo. Diggs has 644 receptions, 5,372 yards, and 37 touchdowns in 66 regular-season games with the Bills. He has 22 catches and two touchdown receptions in five playoff games with Buffalo.

Along with his four Pro Bowl appearances, Diggs was named first-team All-Pro in 2020 and second-team All-Pro in 2022.
