Just now: Buffalo bills head coach Sean McDermott and WR Stefon Diggs announced to….

Wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills Stefon Diggs is no stranger to making news for his actions on the sidelines and on social media.

The NFL player’s recent remark sparked new discussions over his future in Buffalo and his wish to stick with the Bills.

Diggs didn’t leave Buffalo this past season on the best of terms, having had his least productive season since 2019 with the Minnesota Vikings. He completed just 349 receiving yards on 63 targets in the team’s final eight regular-season games, missing a crucial ball in the postseason defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs. Given the roster’s prior experiences stemming from salary-cap concerns, there is now discussion over his future with the squad.

Even though Diggs is among the highest-paid NFL players, he can opt out of his contract before it expires in 2028 without suffering a significant cap impact at that time. $18.5 million in cap savings would result from Buffalo designating Diggs as a post-June 1 trade or release candidate in 2025.

Crucially, the Bills would face a considerably higher financial hit in an offseason that has already seen them lose a substantial amount of quality if they were to trade or release Diggs after June 1st of this year. The 30-year-old wide receiver, though, created a commotion on social media, stoking rumors that he wishes to leave Buffalo.
