Bills, Stefon Diggs Agree To Massive Long-Term Extension

Diggs, 28, already had two years remaining on his existing contract and will now be signed through 2027, earning a total value of $124.1 million, including $70 million guaranteed, as part of the new deal, the source confirmed.
Both sides were reportedly keen on reaching a deal that allowed Diggs to finish his career in Buffalo.
The former University of Maryland standout is the latest Pro Bowl wide receiver to receive a massive extension this offseason, following Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill and Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams, both of whom signed long-term agreements following trades to new teams last month.
The deal also ties Diggs to franchise quarterback Josh Allen -- who signed a six-year contract extension last offseason -- for the next seven seasons.
Diggs was acquired by Buffalo in a blockbuster trade with the Minnesota Vikings in 2020, with Buffalo sending four draft picks -- including a first-rounder -- to Minnesota for the then-budding star receiver.
Since then, the 28-year-old has been among the league's best players at his position, earning his first two career Pro Bowl selections and a first-team All-Pro nod in 2020, having led the NFL in receptions (127) and receiving yards (1,535) during his first season in Buffalo.
