Diggs finished as the receiving yards leader in 2021 with 1,535 receiving yards and 8 receiving touchdowns. The experienced NFL wideout had 127 receptions in 16 games for the Bills. But what does the future hold for the former Maryland man?

Stefon Diggs, eager to achieve ‘big things’ with the Buffalo Bills

The 2020 NFL campaign ended on a sour note for the Josh Allen-led Buffalo Bills. They made the NFL Playoffs by winning the AFC East crown for the first time since 1996. They finished above divisional rivals Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots.

They outplayed the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens to seal a spot in the AFC Championship Game alongside Kansas City Chiefs. The Bills suffered a tragic 38-24 loss as they bowed out before reaching the Super Bowl, yet again.

However, Stefon Diggs is adamant that his season will be different. Speaking in the above Receiver Factory clip, the 27-year is seen proclaiming that doesn’t have anything to prove to anyone but himself. “Imma prove it to myself that I am who I am.”

The highly rated wide receiver will enter his second full season with Buffalo in 2021. The Bills have brought in QB Mitchell Trubisky, WR Emmanuel Sanders, and RB Matt Breida in free agency to strengthen their offense.

Diggs and Allen will be keen to replicate their form for 2020 as they aim to mount another Super Bowl run.
