Texans acquire Stefon Diggs in trade with Bills

In recent news, the Buffalo Bills have traded wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans. The trade was announced by ESPN’s Adam Schefter and will result in a $31 million dead cap charge for the Bills in 2024. In exchange for Diggs, the Bills 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.

Drafted in the fifth round in 2015, Diggs spent his first five seasons with the Minnesota Vikings before joining the Bills in 2020. During his time with Buffalo, he led the league in catches (127) and yards (1535) in his first season. Despite a slight dip in production in 2023, Diggs still managed to achieve over 100 catches (107) and 1,000 yards (1,183) for the fourth consecutive year. He has surpassed 1,000 receiving yards in each of his last six seasons.

Now that he has been traded to the Texans, Diggs will join their roster as another weapon for their rising second-year quarterback C.J. Stroud. Over his 136 career games, Diggs has recorded 810 receptions for 9,995 yards and 67 touchdowns. This trade is sure to bring excitement to both teams and their fans as they look forward to seeing what lies ahead for these talented players on the field.
