One of the underlying storylines since the Buffalo Bills season ended in the AFC Divisional Round against the Cincinnati Bengals has been Stefon Diggs. The team’s All-Pro wide receiver was visibly upset on the sidelines during that game, left the locker room quickly, and has been rather cryptic over the past few weeks.
It is certainly easy to read into this that Diggs might be unhappy and looking for a way out of Buffalo, especially with his brother playing for the Dallas Cowboys. The chances of that happening this offseason are slim to none based strictly due to the business of the league. If the Bills traded Diggs this offseason it would result in over $37 million in dead cap, according to Spotrac.
Micah Hyde doesn’t believe Stefon Diggs is an issue for the Buffalo Bills
While Micah Hyde wasn’t seen much this season by the Buffalo Bills fans because of a neck injury in Week 2, he has been on Good Morning Football this week. On Thursday, he was asked about Stefon Diggs and his comments should give fans some reassurance that Stefon Diggs is not looking to go anywhere and this is just the type of person he is:
"“As a locker room and as an organization, we understand [Stefon] Diggs. We know what type of person he is. Nobody is panicking.”"
Hyde went on to say that Stefon Diggs just wants to win and that is not a bad thing by any means. After Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs is the most important person to this offense and when the team traded for him in 2020, he was a big reason for the transformation of this group being one of the best in the NFL.
There is no reason to fault a player of his talent for being upset with only four targets in the biggest game of the season. The Buffalo Bills have a lot of work to do this offseason but when they take the field in Week 1 of the 2023 season, it should be more of Josh Allen to Stefon Diggs.
