NFL - US Sports: Bills pay for securing Diggs' future

Wide receiver stocks continued to soar with Wednesday's news that the Buffalo Bills had agreed terms with Stefon Diggs, Josh Allen's top target, on a four-year, $96million contract extension that can be worth more in incentives.

The Bills, currently 15/2 to win Super Bowl LVII, have invested heavily this off-season in a bid to bring the Lombardi Trophy to Western New York for the first time.

Bills won race to sign Miller

The AFC East champions beat the Los Angeles Rams to the signature of Super Bowl-winner Von Miller with the aid of a $120m contract and have also re-signed Mitch Morse - formerly the highest-paid center in the league - to a new two-year deal.

Diggs' new agreement puts the 28-year-old under contract in Buffalo for the next six seasons and is ample recognition of his contribution there over the past two seasons.

The former Minnesota Vikings star led the NFL in receiving in 2020 with 127 catches for 1,535 yards on his way to first-team All-Pro honours and a Pro Bowl selection.

Diggs will receive a $21.5m signing bonus and $70m in total guarantees as part of his new deal, which ups the ante in a market that has seen several top wideouts break the bank this off-season.

Wide receivers gaining huge rewards

The Los Angeles Chargers renewed Mike Williams on a three-year $60m to make him the fifth-highest paid wideout in the NFL, before Davante Adams landed a five-year, $141.25m contract from the Las Vegas Raiders after being traded by the Green Bay Packers.

Tyreek Hill then eclipsed them both when he received a four-year contract worth $120m with $72.2m guaranteed from the Miami Dolphins, having been traded away by the Kansas City Chiefs.
