Stefon Diggs traded to Texans

Buffalo Bills finalize a trade to send four-time Pro-Bowl WR Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans for a 2025 second-round pick, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday.

The Bills gave away their current WR1 and traded a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick to the Texans. Diggs recorded 107 receptions for 1,183 yards and eight touchdowns in 2023, which is roughly on par with his statistics from his previous three seasons in Buffalo.

While the Bills had a talented offense with Josh Allen at QB, Buffalo was never able to win the big game in Diggs' four years in New York, which is something that has been an issue for Diggs in the past, falling short to the 2018 Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game during his time with Minnesota.

Now, on his third team, Diggs joins a young, star-studded offense led by the NFL's reigning offensive rookie of the year, C.J. Stroud. In his rookie campaign, Stroud threw for 4,108 yards, 23 touchdowns, and only five interceptions. Seven of those touchdowns were caught by rookie WR Tank Dell, and another five were caught by TE Dalton Schultz, who played his first season with Houston after a five-year stint in Dallas.

Joe Mixon Signs 3 year $27 million extension with Texans

Diggs is not the only addition to the Houston offense this off-season; former Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon was traded to Houston in March and signed a three-year $27 million extension. Houston has built an offense worthy of a significant postseason run, especially with Stroud showing he could win a wild card game in his rookie year. With the additions of Mixon and Diggs, Houston will be a team to keep an eye on next season.
