Good thing we don’t have any games today!  

 

It’s not like Beane to go into a draft with such a glaring need. When we go DT or EDGE at #28 this place will be WILD!  😂 


part of me would actually like to see that. 😂😂😂

Diggs is coming back in 2026 😎

No. He will go sign in Dallas as his brother wanted when Cee Dee Lamb leaves in UFA to come play with Allen instead of Dak. 😎

NateGeary sucks!! He is literally going onto social media and blaming whatever the alleged "incident" Josh had before the Bengals game, and blaming that situation for the downfall of the friendship and Diggs wanting to leave. 

 

I don't know what went down, if anything went down(rumors of course are Josh cheated and his ex destroyed their house etc) but is that really an excuse for Diggs to be pissed off for a year+ over this, and a game(Bengals game) that I don't think The Bills were winning, and I don't blame Josh for the loss.

 

Literally dragging Josh and bringing horrible attention to him to prop Diggs up. It's gross.

I’m not at all involved with these guys but, from what I know, there’s truth to what I believe to be Diggs’s sentiment that Josh had to get his act together in 2023.   That said, there’s also truth to the point that Diggs acted like a supreme a-hole this year.  In the end, it doesn’t matter.  Diggs is gone and on we go.

I hope Beane has learned something throughout all of this. He didn’t have to extend Diggs, he did it because Diggs had outplayed his old contract, but adding FOUR years at his age? Max should’ve been a two year increase, this cap hit would’ve been much more manageable as well.

Texans just announced they voided the final years of his contact 😱

If I'm not mistaken that would also disqualify them from receiving a comp pick. Contracts have to end naturally to qualify. Voiding years is the same as releasing according to the formula.

If we wind up using the cap savings from Diggs to sign Cee Dee Lamb I would support adding Beane to the Ring of Fame the very next day.

Part of me wishes Jones drafts a WR with their first pick and makes Lamb available post-draft. The $$ though ....

They redid the deal. The deal

is a 1 year 22+M deal. Can leave in UFA. Max Comp pick Houston can get even if he signs the guest contract ever is a 5th round. As Diggs will have over 10 years.

This is a very interesting spot for Diggs to bet on himself. He's going to be 31 this upcoming season so by the time he gets his next "bite at the apple" in free agency he's going to be 32. Now historically HOF caliber WR's at age 32 can and still do put up prime numbers but the "cliff" for many great WR's is around age 33/34. It's very rare for a WR no matter how great to put up fantastic stats at age 34 and almost never heard of for a 35 year old WR to put up 1000 yard seasons. 

 

I am some random guy on a message board and I am aware of this fact. So I am sure NFL GM's are also aware of this and would shy away from handing a 32 year old WR who became a problem for a good winning organization a huge bag of money. So I am not sure what Diggs long term goals are here?

Diggs is signed through next year as well. If he goes to Dallas it would be by way of trade or that he's cut. If he's released, he would not be eligible for the comp pick formula 

Houston just voided those years.  They accelerated $3.5M to Diggs this year in guaranteed money, but Diggs becomes a free agent next year.

I get that, and can understand frustration if he felt Allen wasn't focused or his head was not in the game, but to carry that anger for over a year? To blame Allen for that game in which the whole team looked flat? Nate is going hard at Allen over this, and I feel like it's to make Diggs look good in comparison. We are all human and make mistakes, so I just don't think this justifies Digg's behavior this season.

That’s not hindsight. It made little since to extend him for 4 years and $96M at his age. It was an extension that comfortably carried him into his 30s. Bad contract. Even at the time I asked why they’d lock themselves in for so long. A two year extension would’ve been a fair pay raise.

The WR market dictated otherwise.
