The Buffalo Bills have signed star wide receiver Stefon Diggs to a four-year, $104-million extension that includes $70 million guaranteed, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Diggs had two years left on his previous contract, so the deal reportedly signs him to Buffalo for six more seasons at $124.1 million.

The 28-year-old’s new $26-million average annual salary ranks fourth among wide receivers, behind only Tyreek Hill of the Miami Dolphins ($30 million), Davante Adams of the Las Vegas Raiders ($28 million), and DeAndre Hopkins of the Arizona Cardinals ($27.25 million), according to Spotrac.

In guaranteed money, Diggs trails only Hill, who received $72.2 million guaranteed in Miami.

Diggs has been an integral part of the Bills’ offense since Buffalo acquired him in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings in 2020. He led the NFL in receptions (127) and yards (1,535) in his first year with the team before putting up 1,225 yards and a career-high 10 touchdowns on 103 catches last season.

The two-time Pro Bowler ranks first in the league with 330 targets since 2020, according to Pro Football Reference. He’s also racked up the third-most catches and fourth-most receiving yards in that span.

The receiver’s extension comes less than a year after Buffalo gave star quarterback Josh Allen a new six-year contract worth up to $258 million.

Extending Diggs is the latest move in what’s been another successful offseason for the Bills.
