Stefon Diggs is not a happy camper.
New information has been revealed about Stefon Diggs’ dissatisfaction with the Buffalo Bills. Diggs made headlines for not attending Tuesday’s mandatory minicamp session, and the Bills provided little explanation other than that they were working on “non-football matters” with him.
According to an article by Ben Volin of The Boston Globe, Diggs’ discontent with the Bills is centered around his role in the offense and his input on play-calling, rather than money.
“This is a rare situation where the issue doesn’t appear to be money. Diggs signed a four-year, $96 million deal last offseason and is set to make a healthy $24.4 million in 2023.
Diggs’s frustration is with his role in the offense and his voice in play-calling, per a league source close to the Bills’ locker room. He was visibly agitated at Allen during the 27-10 playoff loss to the Bengals, stormed out of the locker room almost immediately after the game, and didn’t attend any voluntary workouts this offseason.”

Despite a lucrative contract, Diggs was reportedly visibly upset with quarterback Josh Allen during a playoff loss to the Bengals and skipped voluntary workouts this offseason. Since joining the Bills in 2020, Diggs has been a standout offensive player, but his postseason production has been lackluster.
Regardless, both parties need to come to a resolution, as Diggs is a crucial player that cannot easily be replaced. It remains to be seen if Diggs will seek a Super Bowl victory and better stats with another team.
