Stefon Diggs Tweets Praise To Bills GM Brandon Beane, But Makes Vikings Fans Mad
It was in March of 2020 when the Buffalo Bills franchise made one of the biggest moves in franchise history and arguably one of the best trades in the NFL over the last decade.
Bills general manager Brandon Beane traded a first-round draft pick in 2020 and a fourth-round draft pick in 2021 in exchange for star wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
Diggs proceeded to catch a league-high 127 passes for over 1,500 receiving yards in a breakout statistical season, as the Bills went 13-3, won the AFC East, and went to the AFC Championship game for the first time in 27 years.
Beane talked about not having a fourth-round pick in 2021 with the media, after the draft concluded, and joked about being done with paying for Diggs!
"I'm finally done paying for Stefon Diggs. Glad it's over," said Beane.
Diggs tweeted love for Brandon Beane on Sunday, and while he was thankful for coming to Buffalo and being part of the Bills organization, he didn't exactly make Minnesota Vikings fans happy with his tweet. Minnesota is where Diggs spent the first five years of his career.
It's no secret that Diggs was unhappy in Minnesota. The Vikings offense was run-oriented and rumors of a Diggs trade were going on long before he was traded to the Bills in March of 2020.
The replies from Vikings to that tweet from Diggs are less than thrilled, to say the least, but I'm sure Diggs is more concerned about his current team in Western New York.
