This NFL offseason has had no shortage of significant moves involving superstar wide receivers. Wideouts like Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams seemed destined to spend their careers with the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers, respectively, but they've since moved on to new situations — making a lot more money along the way.
Although it doesn't look like another major move is imminent, Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs has given his team's fanbase a scare following a cryptic tweet posted on Thursday.
Buffalo Bills Rumors
Diggs tweeted Thursday afternoon "It's always business... never personal."The concerning part is that's similar to what Hill and Adams said when they moved on to their new teams.
Diggs has been one of the best wideouts in the NFL over recent years. When it comes to the major receiving statistics since 2018, he ranks fourth in receptions (395), third in yards (4,911) and eighth in touchdowns (33).
Taking that into account, it's easy to see why Diggs may consider himself as underpaid. He's signed for two more years under his current contract and is set to earn $13.56 million in 2022 and $13.65 million in 2023.
For comparison, Hill's new extension with the Miami Dolphins will see him make $120 million over four years, which translates to an annual average value (AAV) of $30 million. Meanwhile, Adams' five-year, $141.25 million contract with the Las Vegas Raiders will pay him an AAV of $28.25 million.
When you compare those two aforementioned contracts to what Diggs is being paid, it's easy to see why he'd want to secure a bigger payday. Only time will tell if the Bills will ensure that he's paid what he deserves or if he'll have to look elsewhere for the opportunity.
FanDuel Sportsbook is favoring the Bills to win Super Bowl LVII at +650, but those odds would likely take a hit if Buffalo were to lose one of the NFL's top wide receivers.
