Their rise to prominence in recent years is down to the performance of star quarterback Josh Allen. But another key addition in 2020 was the acquisition of experienced NFL wide receiver, Stefon Diggs.

The NFC North old boys traded Diggs and their 7th round draft pick to the Bills for their 1st-round pick (Justin Jefferson), a 5th-round pick, and 6th-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, in addition to a 4th-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

This might seem a lot to NFL fans, but considering his output in 2020, it might still seem like a bargain. He finished the regular season with the most receiving yards (1,553) and 8 receiving touchdowns.

Stefon Diggs reveals his admiration for Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen

The 27-year wideout made a guest appearance on ESPN’s First Take earlier today. He was asked to comment on his relationship with a franchise quarterback, Josh Allen.

He replied, “Having a quarterback like Josh Allen is a lot similar to me as far as being a perfectionist, a guy that wants to work hard and wants to be great at what he does.

“For me, it means a lot just because when your quarterback’s behind you, it means everything. You know, I will go to war for him each and every day.
