Stefon Diggs has been with the Buffalo Bills since the 2020 season. ESPN’s Field Yates reported on Tuesday that Diggs and the team have restructured the former Maryland wideouts contract.

The move allows the Buffalo Bills to free up $5.4 million in cap space. Buffalo is planning on converting Diggs’ base salary into a bonus in order to do so. Diggs played in 16 games for Buffalo this past season. Diggs caught 108 passes for 1,429 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns.

Despite Diggs’ best efforts the Bills have still not been able to acquire a berth in the Super Bowl. This past season the Bills lost 27-10 to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs.

The Bills recently lost LB Tremaine Edmunds in free agency to the Chicago Bears. The Bears are reportedly giving Edmunds a $72 million contract. Another recent move the team has made is to re-sign WR Tyrel Dodson on a one-year deal.

It’s unknown at this time as to why the Bills decided to restructure Diggs’ contract. For now, it looks like WR1 in Buffalo is going to the sticking around.

NFL free agency has been nothing short of exciting so far. Stay tuned for more updates on any former B1G signings in the NFL.
