Bills GM shares thoughts on Stefon Diggs being perceived as a ‘diva’
Former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs is now a member of the Buffalo Bills. Not only that, but the Bills gave up quite a bit to receive the services of Diggs from the aforementioned Vikings as Buffalo sent a massive haul of future NFL Draft picks back to Minnesota.
One thing is for certain, though, it appears as though Bills general manager Brandon Beane is more than thrilled with such a move. Additionally, Beane is not concerned with the “diva” label that Diggs has been hit with by some from around the league.
“I think one of the misnomers out there is that we’re looking for all choir boys,” Beane recently told reporters, via USA TODAY Sports. “That’s not accurate. We are looking for professionals. I would say this about him: he’s a very competitive guy…he brings an edge to that position. I know diva gets put onto that position a lot. I would not call that guy a diva. I would call him more of I think what he was referring to Josh Allen as — a dog.”
With Diggs now on board in Buffalo and former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady currently with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Bills are probably the favorites to win the AFC East division in 2020.
Perhaps one of the top teams in the AFC as well, the Bills have the opportunity to achieve something great next season, which definitely stems from the fact that a player like Diggs is a piece of the puzzle.
