Few people envisioned this happening, but the Buffalo Bills are spiraling out of the playoff race. Inconsistency on both sides of the ball has led to some head-scratching losses, putting one of the offseason Super Bowl favorites in a position where they may miss the postseason.
Monday night’s loss to the Denver Broncos, a 24-22 walkoff on a Wil Lutz field goal, led to offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey being fired less than 24 hours later. Placing the blame on Dorsey, who has performed well in his role since taking over from Brian Daboll, seems like a short-sighted move that makes him the scapegoat.
After all, Dorsey wasn’t the one making Josh Allen turn the ball over at an alarming rate. Alas, the Bills are hoping quarterback coach Joe Brady can help get this unit on track more consistently than Dorsey did.
Getting star wide receiver Stefon Diggs involved consistently again would be a good place to start. There was some contention between Diggs and the franchise in the offseason and their current level of play certainly isn’t going to aid that relationship.
From the sounds of it, that relationship may be beyond repair. According to a source who spoke to NFL Analysis Network, Stefon Diggs is seeking a change of scenery. In an ideal world, he would land with his brother, star cornerback Trevon Diggs, and the Dallas Cowboys.
“Stefon Diggs is going to want out of Buffalo. He’s done there. In an ideal world, his dream is to join his brother in Dallas,” per the source.
Oddly enough, during the game on Monday, Trevon went to social media saying his brother needed to get out of Buffalo. He didn’t say Stefon should come to Dallas and join him, but it would likely be something he is all for.
That would be a huge trade for Dallas, who has been seeking a consistent No. 2 option behind CeeDee Lamb for two offseasons. Brandin Cooks has shown signs of life recently, but the big contract signed by Michael Gallup looks like it is a bust.
The Cowboys would certainly love adding a player of Stefon Diggs’s caliber to the mix, but their salary cap situation is bleak. They need to work out an extension to lower quarterback Dak Prescott’s cap hit and Lamb is due an extension of his own.
But, if anyone is willing to make a blockbuster move and figure out the logistics of it afterward, it is Jerry Jones. If the opportunity presents itself to acquire Stefon, expect the Cowboys to jump into the fray and make a competitive offer.
