Stefon Diggs and the Buffalo Bills Reach Agreement on Four Year‚ $96 Million Extension

The Buffalo Bills have reached an agreement with wide receiver Stefon Diggs‚ extending his contract through 2022. The new contract is among the highest-paid for receivers in the NFL. Diggs' contract will be worth $96 million‚ which is a major boost for the Bills' young star. The agreement also adds to his previous deal with the team.

Stefon Diggs extends contract through 2022

It's official: Stefon Diggs has agreed to a four-year‚ $96 million contract extension with the Buffalo Bills. The contract extension follows those of Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams. Last year‚ the 5-year‚ $72 million contract that Diggs signed with the Minnesota Vikings came to an end after he was traded to Buffalo. The Bills are expected to win their third consecutive AFC East and represent their conference in the Super Bowl‚ so this move is a good thing for them. The Buffalo Bills have agreed to a four-year‚ $96 million contract extension with Stefon Diggs‚ but it could be worth much more if incentives are included in the deal. The new contract puts him under Buffalo's control for six seasons. The Bills also gave Diggs incentives to play in the Super Bowl. Diggs' contract also includes $22 million in guaranteed money.

Contract is among highest-paid for receivers in NFL

Stefon Diggs has signed a four-year‚ $120 million contract extension with the Buffalo Bills. The wide receiver has been one of the NFL's best playmakers over the last two seasons and is now under contract with the Bills through 2027. Diggs' contract is one of the highest paid for receivers in NFL history‚ trailing only Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams. The Bills should be happy that Diggs' deal is worth the money he's receiving. He has already set franchise and league records and is reportedly chasing Hill and Adams for a top-three spot. Diggs also has one of the best quarterback situations in the NFL. Adams and Raiders signal-caller Derek Carr were teammates in college and have some chemistry together. However‚ Carr hasn't achieved the highs that Adams and Diggs have achieved. The market for wide receivers is booming right now‚ with players like A.J. Brown and Deebo Samuel entering their final year of rookie contracts. All of these players are playmakers who should be in line for long-term deals. In addition to Diggs‚ A.J. Brown and Terry McLaurin are also nearing the end of their rookie contracts. The new deal will create more salary cap space for the Bills‚ who were scheduled to count $17.9 million for him this year. He has earned Pro Bowl honors in his first two seasons with the Bills and was named first-team All-Pro in 2020. Diggs had the highest number of receptions and yards in the NFL last season‚ hauling in 103 passes for 1‚225 yards and 10 touchdowns. The new contract for Stefon Diggs will be worth $104 million and includes $70 million guaranteed. The contract will tie him to the Bills for the next six seasons. Diggs will remain in Buffalo until 2023‚ although Adam Schefter's tweet language indicates that the contract is through 2027. Diggs was acquired by the Bills from the Minnesota Vikings in a trade worth a seventh-round pick.

It adds to previous deal with Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills have announced that wide receiver Stefon Diggs has signed a four-year‚ $96 million contract extension. The new deal provides stability at Diggs' position and gives the Bills a solid focus heading into the 2021 season. Last year‚ the Bills went 11-6 and reached the AFC Divisional round before falling to the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime. Now‚ they should be favorites to make their third consecutive trip to the Super Bowl and win the AFC East. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN‚ Stefon Diggs has reached an agreement with the Buffalo Bills to sign a four-year‚ $96 million extension. There are incentives available that could make the deal worth even more. In addition to the four-year contract‚ Diggs' incentive package is worth an additional $18 million. Diggs will be under Buffalo's contract for the next six seasons.
