Report: Bills rework Stefon Diggs’ contract, save $8M in cap space

The Buffalo Bills restructured the contract of All-Pro wide receiver Stefon Diggs, saving $7.8 million in cap space for the upcoming season, ESPN reported Tuesday.

The team converted $11.7 million of Diggs’ 2021 salary into a signing bonus, putting his base salary at $990,000 for this season, per Spotrac.

The Bills now have more than $11 million in cap space to play with, which could be helpful in signing the rest of their draft picks, including first-round DE Greg Rousseau.

Diggs led the NFL in receptions (127) and yards (1,535) in 2020, his first in Buffalo, earning first team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors for the first time in his six-year career. Diggs has 492 career catches for 6,158 yards and 38 touchdowns in 86 games (78 starts) for the Minnesota Vikings (2015-19) and Bills.

Diggs signed a five-year, $72 million extension with the Vikings in July 2018.
