Garafolo mentions that the two parties agreed to move money up a few years, which included increasing Diggs’ 2020 compensation by $3.3 million, leaving him in line to make $14.8 million.
Diggs 2021 cash was reduced by $300,000 but it increased the guarantees by $7.7 million, which brings the total to $11 million.
This also reduced the 2022-23 cash from $25.55 million to $22.67 million.
Garafolo notes that $5.25 million of what they owed to DT Star Lotulelei came off the books when he opted out.
Diggs, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Vikings back in 2015. He was in the final year of his rookie contract when he agreed to a five-year extension worth $72 million with the Vikings in 2018.
The Vikings traded Diggs to the Bills this past March for draft compensation. Diggs was set to make base salaries of $8.9 million and $10.9 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2019, Diggs appeared in 15 games for the Vikings and caught 63 passes for 1,130 yards receiving and six touchdowns.
