Sources – Bills finalize trade of star WR Stefon Diggs to Texans

The Buffalo Bills are finalizing a trade to send four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans for draft-pick compensation, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Wednesday.

The Bills will receive a 2025 second-round pick (via the Minnesota Vikings), a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick in exchange for Diggs.

It's the latest win-now move for the Texans, who surrounded CJ Stroud with veteran talent this offseason.

The Texans traded for running back Joe Mixon this offseason, acquiring him from the Cincinnati Bengals and signing him to a three-year, $27 million extension. They also made a change on the defensive side, signing star pass-rusher Daniel Hunter to a two-year, $49 million contract, including $48 million guaranteed, in free agency.

Diggs joins a loaded Texans offense that includes Stroud, the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year, and Mixon, receivers Nico Collins and Dank Dell and tight end Dalton Schultz.

Meanwhile, the Bills have moved on from several players this offseason. Buffalo released cornerbacks Tre'Davis White and Jordan Boyer and starting center Mitch Morse in salary cap moves. Additionally, receiver Gabriel Davis signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars and outside linebacker Leonard Floyd with the San Francisco 49ers in free agency.
