Stefon Diggs’ $70M Is 2nd-Most Guaranteed Money for WR

  • The two-time Pro Bowler signed a four-year contract extension with the Bills.
  • In two seasons in Buffalo, he has caught 230 passes for 2,760 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Stefon Diggs is the latest high-profile receiver to ink a mega-deal this offseason.

On Wednesday, the Bills locked in the two-time Pro Bowler with a four-year, $104 million extension through 2027, according to ESPN, while NFL Network reported $96 million, plus incentives.

Either way, Diggs has deservedly joined the list of elite receivers making bank in recent weeks — and his $70 million guaranteed is second at the position.

  • Tyreek Hill, Dolphins: 4 YR/$120M ($72.2M guaranteed) — highest AAV all-time for WR.
  • Davante Adams, Raiders: 5 YR/$141M ($67.5M guaranteed)
  • D.J. Moore, Panthers: 3 YR/$61.9M
  • Mike Williams, Chargers: 3 YR/$60M
  • Chris Godwin, Buccaneers: 3 YR/$60M

Diggs and Josh Allen will remain one of the NFL’s top offensive duos for the foreseeable future. Last offseason, the Bills signed the QB to a six-year, $258 million contract ($150M guaranteed) through ’28.

In his two seasons in Buffalo, Diggs has caught 230 passes for 2,760 yards and 18 touchdowns, including a career-high 10 in 2021.

Diggs’ extension should give Buffalo — the Super Bowl favorites (+650) — more room to build next season’s roster. According to the NFLPA, the Bills have $3.9 million in cap space for ’22 — the third-least in the league — before the Diggs deal is official.
