Bills trade for Diggs - jw no discussions on a restructure

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I couldn’t be more thrilled with the Bills pulling this off in view of what we clearly needed most last year to take that next step—you may quibble about price versus draft moves, but this is Whaley-level fun splash but guided by an actual progression plan that fits and instantly makes us better as a whole. Now if we can just keep the guys healthy and start our season off on time, look out AFC!!

Alot of Vikings fans are saying they fleeced us, they're speaking off raw emotion.

 

Going back on Twitter and YouTube , the fans wanted to keep him , looked at him as superior to Thielen. When he started sending cryptic tweets, fans said they'd want a 1 and 3 at least. He's an elite talent.

Equally notable is that the very top WRs in this draft wouldnt have been avail at 18

I have been banging the drum pretty loud for one of the top 3 (hit the ground running faster), but you cannot dislike this move at all. A proven 26 yr old WR for pick $18 on a very team friendly deal that will at some point soon require a bump up in pay, he is a win now player.

I’ll say it again:  Antonio Brown is the closest comp (as a player).  Elite route running, hyper competitiveness, insane hands, feet and body control.

For real, people are crazy if they think they are the same player.  
 

Watching a highlight tape of him will quickly show Diggs is elite route runner and plays quite big and is open even when not open.  He leads NFL since 2017 in contested catches for a reason.  
 

Beane had himself one hell of a day 1.  

 

I love the Diggs deal. I am a bit more lukewarm on Klein and Addison. I can see some of the reasoning neither are guys I am all that high on. I expect them to both be those Beane type deals that they can get out of after 1 year though

mostly plug the gap guys, Edge is a big concern going forward and I think will be our first pick in the draft minus a big signing/trade

Why? 

Cause there is a guy who i have barely seen play that could be available in the 5-6 rd who will more than likely be out of the league or playing XFL ball if it still exists in about 2-3 years

Yeah, they are trying to convince themselves that they "won" the trade. It appears everyone outside that fan base tends to disagree - not just Bills fans.

No he was sharing his targets with an inferior receiver. And this is not a new opinion. I have been saying Diggs > Theilen for 2 years. 

 

He is my guy. I would love him at #54.

 

Well I've been saying I'm the King of Ireland for at least the past 5 years....still not true!

 

Diggs is a solid 10-12 YPC WR.  Dropped 6 passes last year (under 100 targets).  Theilen catches everything.  Missed games last season.  Was clearly superior to Diggs in 2018.

 

Diggs can score though, and this Offense is desperate for points, so it's a good trade.  Guess Beane wasn't overly impressed with  the top WR prospects.

also, HUDS, there are great receivers in this draft, but I believe there is still a learning curve with young receivers.

 

...heading into the fourth year into this regime, with two playoff appearances, is not “learning curve” time. He is a vet.

 

so, true number one with Diggs, still deep ball threat with Smoke, and possession receiver with the Bease...and year two for Knox and Singletary. 
 

I am not unhappy.

Thielen is more consistent than Diggs. But talent wise? Diggs is better and frankly I have never thought it was all that close. 

 

Whereas Ireland doesn't even have a king.

I was not in the Diggs camp when initially there were discussions about his potential trade to Buffalo - but honestly, after re-thinking this and going through all of the positives, namely his immediate contribution vs. Rookie WR that needs to learn and grow, along with his age being his prime productive years and his fair contract for 4 more years, while truly giving up a 1st this year and a 4th next year, this is a very fair and potentially tremendous value for the Bills.

 

I'm all aboard the Diggs train, especially if the Offense continues to evolve and Josh Allen grows as a result. Let's Go Bills!

Out top 3 WR's look very nice for 2020. On top of seeing what Diggs can do in a Bills uniform, I'm also interested in the "trickle down effect" Diggs will have on Brown and Beasley.

 

Day 1 of free agency was good for the Bills, now I'm hoping Beane adds another weapon on offense (maybe a TE?)

This is exactly right, very similar players.   Through the first five years of their careers Diggs has more touchdowns and a better catch %.

 

He is an elite talent.

This is why I think we're pretty much done in FA...at least anything more than depth.  Dawkins and Milano probably coming up soon.  Tre next year.

Hyde might get an extension.
