The Latest on NFL free agency. The NFL’s spending in free agency continues Friday:
The Buffalo Bills are indeed, as quarterback Josh Allen put it on Twitter, digging it.
The Bills officially announced acquiring receiver Stefon Diggs in a multi-draft-pick trade with the Minnesota Vikings.
The trade was agreed to Monday, and announced by both teams Friday.
The Vikings acquired four draft picks, including Buffalo’s first-round choice (22nd overall), giving them five of the top 105 picks in this year’s draft. Minnesota also acquired Buffalo’s fourth- and fifth-round picks this year, and a fourth-round selection in 2021.
Buffalo also acquired the Vikings’ seventh-round pick as part of the deal to provide the Josh Allen-led offense a primary deep threat it has been previously missing. Diggs joins an established group of receivers rounded out by John Brown and Cole Beasley.
The 26-year-old Diggs has topped 1,000 yards receiving each of his past two years. Last year, he had a career-best 1,130 yards receiving and ranked fourth in the NFL in averaging 17.9 yards per catch.
Allen welcomed the trade with a tweet that read: “Ya Digg?”
Diggs responded by writing: â€œLETS GET IT.â€
