They give the Texans WR Stefon Diggs in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2025 draft.

After two years, Stefon Diggs has been moved for the second time.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Wednesday that the Buffalo Bills are moving Diggs to the Houston Texans along with a sixth-round pick (No. 189 overall) in 2024 and a fifth-round pick in 2025. The Texans will receive a second-round pick in 2025. The Bills have now made the deal public.

They give the Texans WR Stefon Diggs in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2025 draft.

After being traded from Minnesota to Buffalo in 2020, Diggs had four seasons in which he caught more than 1,100 yards. In his first season with Josh Allen, he led the NFL with 127 catches and 1,535 yards.

“I love and respect the city of Buffalo so much that I can’t even begin to describe it.” The city made me feel welcome for four of the best years of my life. “I’ll always be thankful for all of you and the Bills organization!” Diggs wrote on Instagram Wednesday night. “Over the years, I’ve built something special with some very special men. It will always have a place in my heart.” Billsmafia, you’ve made a lot of great moments over the years. Because of you, those games were crazy. It’s a shame that good things have to end until we meet again. 14.”

Getting Diggs is a huge deal for the Texans because it gives quarterback C.J. Stroud another tool. Along with Nico Collins and Tank Dell, the 30-year-old wide receiver makes up one of the best receiver trios in the NFL. Stroud will have a senior he can count on in Diggs because he can win one-on-ones and get open off the line. All three receivers should work well together, which will allow offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik to pose a threat to defenders at all levels.

Also, Diggs should help make sure that new running back Joe Mixon sees a lot of light boxes this season. With Dalton Schultz at tight end and a strong offensive line, the Houston offense looks like it will be unstoppable in 2024.

Nick Caserio, the team’s general manager, made moves this summer to make the most of his young quarterback, who was named to the Pro Bowl. It looks like Stroud will keep going up after an award-winning rookie season.

In Buffalo, it looked like the team was ready to let go of the flashy target.

Allen looked at Diggs a lot during his time in Buffalo, where he caught a lot of passes and scored a lot of touchdowns (5,372 yards and 37).

That being said, Diggs’s role decreased after Ken Dorsey was fired and Joe Brady was made offensive coordinator last season. The wide receiver never scored 100 yards in the last seven regular season games or two playoff games, and his playing dropped from around 90% to the low 60s.

There was also the drama from last offseason to think about. Diggs missed part of required minicamp, which made Sean McDermott say that he was “very concerned” about the wideout’s absence. After that mess up in the offseason, the club and Diggs went on, but things never seemed to be normal.

Over The Cap says that trading Diggs leaves Buffalo with more than $31 million in dead cap space. The Bills were clearly eager to move on since they didn’t get much in return (not even a 2024 draft pick).

Bills general manager Brandon Beane told reporters on Wednesday, “I think we just want to appreciate when we had Stef here, the years we did, and again, you don’t want to get into every reason you make every move.” „It’s not the same with every player. We’ve traded for other players and bought players, like him. You don’t make decisions without thinking about the pros and cons of each one. You believe that everything you do is the best choice. However, you always do what’s best for the Bills. That’s what we’re trying to do here, and yes, we did make the move.

Sending Diggs to Houston leaves Buffalo’s receivers with a huge hole. They also lost Gabe Davis to the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency. Right now, Khalil Shakir, Curtis Samuel, Mack Hollins, K.J. Hamler, and Justin Shorter are Allen’s main threats.

Most predictions said that the Bills would pick up a receiver in the first round. Now that we know about Diggs, those jokes will only get worse.

Buffalo has been making changes all summer. They have already let go of Diggs, Davis, Mitch Morse, Jordan Poyer, Tre’Davious White, and others.

We knew that the Bills team in 2024 would be different. Diggs emphasizes that point with an exclamation point when he talks about shipping out.
