Who's up for some rampant speculation?

Hmmm... think we should go us, or the Patriots?

I think the Giants are hands down the likeliest candidate. He fits a real need, Shurmur had success with him, and they're not out of it by any means.

Let’s go! 

 

(For wild rumors, don’t really care either way about Diggs)

But that’s sensible, informed, decent speculation. What we’re looking for is rampant, baseless, irresponsible speculation.

Ha ha. In all seriousness, he was super-productive under Shurmur in the two years Shurmur was Minnesota's OC - 2016 and 2017. Plus there's that catch in the Saints playoff game.

Would much rather have him running those deep throws then Zay Jones

 

That is all


good player but doesn’t he have a big contract?  Also he is not a true #1 that the team needs

I like him a lot. I think that’s a good spot for him. Especially if they want to escalate the Daniel Jones fraud.

The Bills have tons of cap space, and he's 10 times the player Jones is. It's not even a comparison, really. That said, I don't see him winding up on the Bills at all.

I think he is a playmaker

 

At some point we need to start spending some of this money.....Beane even though he brought in all these players this year still spent a mild portion of our cap....we have even MORE cap going into next year.

 

I realize we need to extend our own good players.....but we also need to think about the final pieces of what will be a Super Bowl team.   Why is KC so good?  Because they have TALENT

It's more about the Giants than the Bills. He's a better fit there, and he's an even bigger need for them than he is for the Bills. Plus he had a ton of success under Shurmur.

He actually had his best year without Shurmur though.  

 

I’m someone who never got the Cousins hype.  But at this point, I’d trust him over Allen and Jones as passers.  Plus, the Vikes are loaded as a team.  I don’t know why they would want to trade Diggs at this point.

That was so dumb.  Dumb luck (aka Antonio Brown) prevailed though.

But Gettlemen is talking with his stooges and saying, "Yeah, he's a great fit, and he will probably be great for us, but Shurmur is pushing this hard, so when that happens he will look smart and we can't have that."

Free soda John? Are you trying to turn him into Kelvin Benjamin?

Cousins is a tease at best and closer to horrible than good.

Well, in 2017, he had 14 catches for 207 yards in two postseason games, so that should be factored in. But it's immaterial: while he had a great year last year, he was also terrific before that. He's a good player, and is gonna know Shurmur's system pretty well. Bottom line: he's a good player who will slide in easily in NY.

Agreed but he still is 4,000 yard passer.  Receivers care about their numbers.  But it is an awful contract and he is a huge dork.

Why would Digs start following Bills players on Instagram out of the blue. This trade is imminent and he’s about to become a Buffalo Bill. Zay Jones and a 2nd round pick for Diggs, I’m calling it now.
