Buffalo Bills fans knew that the Stefon Diggs era would end at some point but it came to a crashing end on Wednesday when the team shipped him off to Houston. Simply trading Diggs was bad enough but the trade was made worse when finding out that the Texans outright fleeced the Bills in the deal.

Houston only surrendered a second-round pick for NEXT year's draft while the Bills sent Diggs and two late-round draft picks to the Texans. Clearly, the Bills were ready to move on from Diggs and his drama.

Bills GM Brandon Beane tried to calm fans down after the trade and said that in no way was the team throwing in the towel and waving the white flag.

"This is by no means the Bills giving up or trying to take a step back or anything like that. Everything we do, we're trying to win, and we're going to continue to do that. It's April the 3rd, and we'll continue to work on this roster and make sure we're ready to play come September."

Brandon Beane is adamant that the Bills are not taking a step back after Stefon Diggs trade

Teams make big moves like this all the time but if the Bills' goal was to save money, that didn't happen, as they're still on the hook for $31 million of Diggs' deal, the biggest cap hit on the Bills roster. Beane assured fans that the Bills are still in it to win it but it doesn't feel like that right now.

The good news is that Buffalo still has Josh Allen as its quarterback and have the draft to add some wide receiver help. We saw with the Chiefs the past few years that a team doesn't need a superstar wide receiver to win a Super Bowl but it sure does help.

Let's hope that Brandon Beane is right and the Buffalo Bills continue to be a Super Bowl contender even with Stefon Diggs wearing a different uniform in 2024.
