Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane provided an update on a possible contract extension for wide receiver Stefon Diggs

Over the weekend, the social media rumors picked up about the possible idea of Stefon Diggs leaving the Buffalo Bills. One of the reasons was Stefon’s brother, Trevon Diggs who is a starting cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys brought up the idea of playing with his brother in Dallas.

However, Josh Allen was quick to shoot that idea down on Twitter.

On Monday, general manager Brandon Beane was speaking to the media and was asked specifically about a potential extension for Stefon Diggs. Matthew Bove tweeted a video with some of his response:

While Brandon Beane didn’t want to get into specifics, he did say that he feels that he has a great relationship with the star wide receiver. They have had a few discussions since the end of the season but “contracts get done when they are supposed to get done.”

Stefon Diggs still has two years left on contract with the Buffalo Bills

The challenge for Brandon Beane is that while Stefon Diggs is undoubtedly deserving of a new contract, he still has two years left on his current deal. The cap hits of roughly $18 million each of the next two seasons is a bargain for a player of his caliber. Especially when considering some of the new contracts that wide receivers Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill have received from their new teams this offseason.

Based on Brandon Beane’s response, he doesn’t appear overly concerned right now about Stefon Diggs and a new contract certainly appears to be on the top of his mind.

However, as the Bills’ general manager has shown over the years, this is not the time of the offseason that he has typically worked out these big contract extensions which align with his comment about the fact that contracts get done when they are supposed to get done.
