Stefon Diggs is officially the next wide receiver up to receive his big payday. He and the Buffalo Bills came to terms Wednesday on a four-year extension. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the extension is worth $104 million with $70 million guaranteed and puts him under contract with Buffalo for the next six seasons at $124.1 million. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports that the new extension is worth $96 million, however, so official terms of the extension aren’t quite clear.
Diggs’ deal follows what has been a lucrative offseason for some of the NFL’s top wide receivers. The best examples are Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams, who received contracts that made them the two highest-paid wideouts in the league on an annual basis.
Here are the lists of the NFL’s highest-paid WRs by total contract value, annual average value and most guaranteed money. Diggs will slot somewhere into these lists as soon as the terms of his deal become official.
