Buffalo Bills: 4 things we learned during mandatory minicamp
Stefon Diggs wants perfection
Last year probably couldn’t have gone any better for Stefon Diggs in his first season with the Buffalo Bills. He seemingly clicked almost immediately with Josh Allen and would go on to set single season franchise records in receptions and receiving yards while also leading the league in both categories.
Even with the great season that Stefon Diggs had, he is not cutting any corners this year. This video from Thad Brown of WROC is a perfect example of the importance Diggs is putting on those finer details.
In the video, Diggs runs a route and coming out of his break, loses his footing and slips. He was able to recover and could have made the catch but instead bats the ball down. He returns to the line of scrimmage, gets right back in line, and runs the same route, this time without slipping, and makes the catch.
There isn’t anyone who would have given a second thought on that first route if Diggs just made the catch, or if he even missed it due to slipping at the top of his route. However, the Bills’ top receiver wanted to make it a point that he was going to make sure that route was right and went back and did it over.
These are the little attention of details that show how this team wants to practice which will ultimately impact how they perform on the field.
