Texans acquire Stefon Diggs in trade with Bills

Recently, Stefon 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.

By trading Diggs before June 1, the Bills will face a $31 million dead cap charge in 2024. Diggs is currently signed through 2027. Originally a fifth-round pick in 2015, Diggs spent his first five seasons with the Vikings before joining the Bills in 2020. He had an impressive first season in Buffalo, leading the league in catches (127) and yards (1535).

In 2023, Diggs’ production slightly decreased, but he still managed to achieve over 100 catches (107) and 1,000 yards (1,183) for the fourth year in a row. He has surpassed 1,000 receiving yards for six consecutive seasons. However, the Bills have made the decision to part ways with Diggs, allowing the Texans to add him as another weapon for second-year quarterback C.J. Stroud.

Throughout his 136-game career, Diggs has recorded 810 receptions for 9,995 yards and 67 touchdowns.
