Minnesota Vikings send Stefon Diggs to AFC East franchise via trade
Stefon Diggs will no longer be wearing a Minnesota Vikings uniform. The former Maryland wide receiver is headed to the AFC East following a trade.
On Monday night, Jay Glazer of FOX reported that the Buffalo Bills have acquired Diggs through a trade from the Vikings. Unless there is a restructuring of his contract in Buffalo, Diggs is scheduled to make $11.5 million for the 2020 season, according to NFL.com.
Diggs had played the first five years of his NFL career with the Vikings.
