In a shocking offseason move, the Buffalo Bills have decided to trade star wide receiver Stephon Diggs to the Houston Texans for a 2024 sixth-round pick, a 2025 fifth-round pick, and a 2025 second-round pick.

The star wide receiver began his career when he was selected in the fifth round of the NFL draft by the Minnesota Vikings in 2015. He stayed with the Vikings until 2020 when he was traded to the Buffalo Bills. After spending three seasons in Buffalo, the star is now on his way to Houston.

At just 30 years old, Diggs has four years and $75 million remaining on his current contract, with $18.5 million guaranteed for this year. The shocking decision by the Bills will result in a $31 million dead cap hit for the 2024 season.

While Diggs has been known to stir the pot during the offseason with cryptic tweets voicing his displeasure with the Bills organization, this year a decision was made to terminate the relationship between Diggs and the Bills.

While many across the league called for Stephon Diggs to join the Dallas Cowboys to play with his younger brother, Trevon Diggs, who is a cornerback for the Cowboys, the Texans stepped up and made a deal happen, bringing a four-time Pro Bowler to play with C.J. Stroud and the Houston Texans.

The Houston Texans, who made a meteoric rise after drafting C.J. Stroud last year, who led them to the Divisional round of the NFL playoffs, are making moves to take their team to the next level, adding Joe Mixon and Stephon Diggs.

The Bills, who have lived in the shadow of Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, are making significant changes heading into the 2024 season. They are aiming to reset their wide receiver market and free up some cap space to build a new Bills offense.
