That’s the absolute best part of their relationship.  That’s what best friends do….. call each other fat

 

I could be wrong, but I don't think it would go over too well if Josh called a member of the "Skinny Boy Club" (Dawkins name for the WR) "Fatty"

 

What was missed in the original exchange, is that when Diggs yelled out "Hey Fatty, how much do you weigh?" Josh answered "ONE Twenty" not "220" as Diggs repeated.  (that's probably closer to his girlfriend's weight)

All the stuff saying he wants to finish his career here made me remember his first TD as a Buffalo Bill.

 

 

 

 

That made me laugh.  Yeah, that's classic Josh.

The "Top-51" is the offseason requirement. As of the final cuts and continuing into the season, the cap is based on the entire roster including practice squad. So, if more $ are needed to fit all under the cap by then, more restructuring or other changes are needed.

Yeah, but a bunch of players will be getting cut too, so from top 51 to 53 man roster isn't a huge change

NOW we know how Stefon got that contract done.  (Memo to Jordan Poyer)

 

 

Somehow it wouldn’t be as cute if it was Rachel sitting on Jordan’s lap telling Beane to show her the money

I don’t think Dawkins or any fatty on the team would be mad at being called fatty by any teammate.  It’s not like they aren’t trying to be fat.  If you can’t own your fat as an nfl player, you’ve got some serious insecurity issues.

That's not in question, the question is whether the "skinny boy club" (eg WR) would object

IOW can Josh Allen call Diggs "fatty"?

 

I'm thinking "No"

Maybe this was more broadly understood to be true, as the deals are almost always more team friendly than initially reported, but...this is a good looking extension.

It seems very fair to me.  It gives him a bunch of new money this year

 

(I peg Diggs as a man who is fully up on the meaning of the term "net present value")

 

It gives him a raise consistent with his performance the last 2 years

It really only locks the Bills in one extra year over his current deal (3 year deal)

 

And... it gives us $6.1M to sign our draft class/sign a FA/renegotiate another contract

The rare Win-Win scenario. 

 

One of the less heralded benefits of organizational "culture" might be represented by the structure of this extension. Fair deal for both sides without any unnecessary distractions. Could he get more elsewhere? Yeah, possibly. But he didn't want more elsewhere.
