Stefon Diggs trade doesn’t signal rebuild, Bills GM Brandon Beane says: We’ll have ‘a damn good team’ in 2024


While some may feel that the Buffalo Bills are punting on this season, general manager Brandon Beane stressed that that is not the case despite trading four-time Pro Bowl Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans on Wednesday. Diggs is the latest notable player to leave Buffalo this offseason, a list that also includes defensive backs Jordan Poyer, Tre’Davious White and Siran Neal, center Mitch Morse and wideout Gabe Davis.

“I think we do have a lot of confidence in our offense,” Beane said. “And listen, we don’t play games until September. I…
