The Buffalo Bills pulled off a big trade on Monday, sending four draft picks including a first-rounder to the Vikings in exchange for disgruntled wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Sources tell ESPN that the Bills gave up first, fifth and sixth-round picks in the 2020 draft, as well as a fourth-rounder in 2021. The Bills will receive a 2020 seventh round pick back from the Vikings as part of the swap. Diggs hauled in 63 catches in 2019, coming off a monster 2018 where he had a career-best 102 catch, but had shown visible frustration with the team last year, and was fined $200,000 for unexcused absences from practices and team meetings early in the year. The first-round pick the Vikings got for Diggs sits at No. 22 overall, and the team will also save $5.5 million against the salary cap with the trade.
