The Buffalo Bills acquired Stefon Diggs in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night, that signals a new beginning for the wide receiver.
Buffalo will give up the No. 22 pick of the 2020 draft and three other picks to get Diggs. Minnesota also receives a fifth- and sixth-round pick from this year’s draft and a fourth-round pick in the 2021 draft.
Bills’ quarterback Josh Allen was quick to take to Twitter to give his new wideout a shoutout.
The Bills are beefing up their receiving options for Allen by getting him a No. 1 receiver. They also have John Brown and Cole Beasley at the receiver spots.
Diggs started Monday afternoon asking for a new beginning and it didn’t take long for it to happen.
In the end its a great deal for Diggs and the Bills. The Vikings didn’t see to know what to do with his skillsets. Last season, Diggs caught 63 passes for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns. But with plenty of targets on the Vikings, Diggs appeared visibly upset several times about lack of production.
Expect those numbers to double up in Buffalo.
