Former Maryland football wide receiver Stefon Diggs signed a massive extension with the Buffalo Bills for four years and $104 million, $70 million of which is guaranteed. Diggs still has two years left on his contract, so this deal locks him in Buffalo for another six years.

The former Maryland standout has had back-to-back seasons with over 100 receptions and over 1,000 receiving yards. He’s also had a combined 18 touchdowns in those two seasons. Diggs was named to the pro bowl in both of those seasons and in 2020 was a First Team All-Pro.

Diggs played at Maryland from 2012-14. In 2014, he was named All-Big Ten second team by the coaches. The Minnesota Vikings drafted Diggs in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft and the receiver has been with Buffalo since the 2020 season.
