The snow hasn't even melted yet in Buffalo and NY Giants fans are already hoping that the Bills' misery from losing in the Divisional Round to the Chiefs will prove to be gold for general manager Joe Schoen. Is the usual cryptic Stefon Diggs tweet on the way? Surely it must be.
In recent seasons, Diggs has taken early postseason exits quite hard, which has opened the door for different trade scenarios to pop up. Due to his familiarity and love for NY head coach Brian Daboll, the idea of a Diggs trade to East Rutherford is typically brought up this time of the year. Well, 2024 is no different, as Giants Nation has raced to social media to try and push for a Diggs move.
Could the NY Giants try and trade for Stefon Diggs this offseason?
Diggs, who just turned 30 in late November, is coming off another great season for the Bills. He posted 107 receptions for 1,183 yards and eight touchdowns. However, his performance in the loss to the Chiefs wasn't what people were hoping for, as he finished with three receptions for 21 yards. Despite that, perhaps a move to New Jersey would be of interest? A lot of people think so:
The people have spoken. While the thought of reuniting Diggs with Daboll would be cool to see, does it make much sense for the Giants? Diggs has a cap hit of $27.9 million for next season and he'll be 31 before December gets here.
The Giants could be much smarter to save money for offensive line/pass-rush help and go after a WR1 for Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick. Several NFL Mock Drafts have the Giants and Schoen going with either LSU's Malik Nabers or Washington's Rome Odunze.
Diggs is an incredible talent and he'd no question be a playmaker for the Giants if something actually went down. Having said that, going after a youngster like Odunze or Nabers via the draft feels like it would not only be the better option, but it'd be the more economical move too.
