Buffalo Bills: Grading the trade for wide receiver Stefon Diggs
The Buffalo Bills made a splash by trading with the Minnesota Vikings for wide receiver Stefon Diggs. This is how we grade the Bills trade for the top wide receiver.
Since the days of Eric Moulds, the Buffalo Bills have been searching for a top wide receiver. They have drafted players like Lee Evans and Sammy Watkins, as well as signed Terrell Owens. None of those moves had the impact the Bills wanted however the latest move hopefully is the one that fills this need.
Entering this offseason, the Bills didn’t have any glaring holes outside of a few needs. One of those needs was to get that top wide receiver that can compliment, but also create winnable matchups, for last year’s free agent signings of John Brown and Cole Beasley.
When the opportunity presented itself, the Bills didn’t waste any time and last week sent four draft picks, including their first round pick this year, for Stefon Diggs and a seventh round pick.
When evaluating the Buffalo Bills’ trade we look at three key areas: Team Need, Team Fit, Trade Compensation/Salary Cap Implications and compile those grades for a final grade. This is how we grade the Bills addition of Stefon Diggs.
