4 worst-case scenarios for the Buffalo Bills 2023 offseason
Stefon Diggs demands a trade
For the last worst-case scenario, it is not something that has happened yet or something that even appears likely, but recent comments by Stefon Diggs have put the idea out there. Before the Super Bowl, Stefon Diggs did a number of interviews and the frustration from their loss in the AFC Divisional Round appeared to still be there for the Pro Bowl wide receiver.
In one interview with USA Today, Diggs talked about how he has talked with his brother Trevon Diggs ‘all the time’ about playing together. He was asked if he could see him playing together or against each other in the Super Bowl and his response was “I don’t know. We will see”.
This interview is not a formal trade demand, or even sounds like he is likely to make that demand, but when considering the frustration on the sideline in the fourth quarter, combined with leaving the locker room quickly after the game, it starts to at least raise some speculation.
If Stefon Diggs were to demand a trade this offseason, it would be a significant change for this offense. After Josh Allen, there isn’t a more important player to this offense as he is a true number one wide receiver and does a lot, even when he is not getting the targets. It not only would require Brandon Beane to try and find a trade but then also try and find a player who could be capable of replacing what Diggs brings.
Among the four scenarios, this would be by far the toughest to navigate for the Buffalo Bills and create havoc on their offseason.
