Stefon Diggs finally explains his side of Bills minicamp drama: ‘Water under the bridge’

There’s been plenty of smoke in the air around Buffalo during the NFL offseason. 

Whether it’s from wildfires in Canada or drama surrounding the Bills, western New York has experienced some unwanted cloudiness. On Wednesday, Stefon Diggs attempted to clear the air at Bills camp in Rochester, N.Y.

For the first time in a long time, Diggs spoke to the media and addressed his minicamp absence that sparked controversy. The star receiver said the situation with minicamp revolved around “family matters,” but ultimately it’s “water under the bridge.”

After tough exits from the postseason in three consecutive years — most recently with a blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional Round — Diggs was tired of the Bills’ inability to reach the big game. He told to reporters that miscues on offense and frustration with teamwork were part of the issue. 

He pointed to how his time with the Minnesota Vikings ended, as the team failed to capitalize on the window to win. 

Regardless, Diggs said he still wants to retire as a member of the Bills and also made it a point to say that his relationship with Josh Allen never wavered. 

At the time, many jumped to conclusions about Diggs being potentially unhappy in Buffalo — pointing to his playoff outburst toward Allen against the Bengals. The situation was complicated when head coach Sean McDermott said he was, “very concerned,” about Diggs’ absence.

As camp gets underway, it appears that all the issues have been resolved within the organization. As general manager Brandon Beane said Wednesday, “sometimes you need to have honest conversations.”

The offseason is now firmly in the rearview mirror for the Super Bowl contenders as hope once again fills the air. Now all that’s left is to win.
