The Houston Texans reportedly got rid of the final three years of Stefon Diggs' contract, allowing him to test free agency next offseason, as part of a reworked deal agreed upon after acquiring him in a trade with the Buffalo Bills this week, sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Texans also reportedly moved the $3.5 million guaranteed to Diggs in 2025 to the upcoming season, owing him a total of $22.52 million in guaranteed money in 2024, according to Schefter. The Bills confirmed the Diggs trade to the Texans hours after Schefter initially reported that the two sides were "finalizing" a deal on Wednesday (April 3).

"Blockbuster: Bills are finalizing a trade to send four-time Pro-Bowl WR Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans for draft-pick compensation, sources tell ESPN," Schefter wrote on his X account. "Compensation updates, per sources: Bills receive 2025 second-round pick via Minnesota. Texans receive Stefon Diggs and a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick."

Diggs was acquired by the Bills in a trade with the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a first round pick -- which was used on All-Pro wide receiver Justin Jefferson -- as well as fifth and sixth round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft in March 2020. The former Maryland standout recorded more than 100 receptions and 1,000 yards -- which included an NFL best 127 receptions for 1,535 yards in 2020 -- during each of his four seasons in Buffalo.

Diggs has, however, shown frustration as the Bills have fallen short of Super Bowl aspirations throughout his tenure. The Pro Bowler appeared to have have publicly questioned quarterback Josh Allen hours prior to being traded.

Diggs wrote, "you sure?" in response to a now-private X account that acknowledged Allen benefiting "from having a top-tier receiver" but questioned whether he was "essential" to the quarterback's success.

In November, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs, wrote, "Man 14 gotta get up outta there," referring to his older brother by his number, on his X account after the Bills' 24-22 upset loss to the Denver Broncos on 'Monday Night Football.'

Stefon Diggs was limited to just three receptions for 34 yards on five total targets during the 'MNF' loss, which was the Bills' third in four games and dropped the team to 5-5, before an inevitable late-season rally to earn the No. 2 seed in the AFC. Diggs was also noticeably frustrated during the Bills' AFC Divisional Round playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in January 2023 and absent from the team's mandatory minicamp, which was reported to be over his role in the Buffalo's offense.
