The Bills have restructured the contract of wide receiver Stefon Diggs, Field Yates of ESPN reports. They converted base salary into a bonus, creating another $5.4 million in cap space.

  1. Miller, Allen and Diggs restructuring … Beanne is about to make a move.

  2. Wait, I thought the Bills were in cap hell for the next twenty years. Was I lied to?

    But I thought he wanted out? Lol
    This is a team accounting move. You know it is nothing to do with Diggs wanting out, or to stay, right? However, at those cap numbers, he won’t be there for another 3 years, or maybe even 2.

  4. The cap space leveraging is telling you they are going to go for a FA or make a trade for another offensive weapon like RB and WR. If they dont its wildcard for them. Too bad they cant also force out Dorsey and McDermott like they did to Frasier.
