Stefon Diggs Jokingly Asks For $200K From a Bills Teammate
Monday was a big day for NFL fans. Yes, it was a bust day for NFL teams but very fun for fans because it was the first legal tampering day of NFL free agency.
Basically, teams could legally talk and negotiate with unrestricted free agents. They cannot sign with a given team until Wednesday at 4 pm, EST.
The Buffalo Bills were busy on Monday as well. They released starting offensive lineman Daryl Williams. It's a move that saves the team $6 million towards the salary cap. They also extended center Mitch Morse, which should help the Bills with much needed cap room.
The Bills also signed offensive lineman, Rodger Saffold to a one-year contract. It appears Saffold will play left guard for the Bills in 2022.
But general manager Brandon Beane was busy on Sunday too. The Bills re-signed wide receiver/kick returner Isaiah McKenzie to a two-year contract, which is worth $4.4 million but incentivized up to $8 million.
McKenzie was interviewed by the Buffalo media on Monday and McKenzie not only talked about how important it was to stay in Western New York, but also, that wide receiver Stefon Diggs had some fun with him.
McKenzie said Diggs jokingly asked him for $200,000. Not the $200 which the media thought based on McKenzie's comments.
Diggs loves having fun at his teammates' expense, but McKenzie does the same stuff to teammates, so for once the tables were turned here.
What exactly will the Bills do on Tuesday? Cornerback? Defensive tackle? Wide receiver?
