Bills Restructure WR Stefon Diggs’ Contract


Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the Bills restructured WR Stefon Diggs‘ contract on Tuesday. 

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.
