Any Dallas Cowboys fans tuned in to the Monday Night Football clash between the Bills and Broncos witnessed another Buffalo collapse in primetime. Josh Allen's turnovers were once again detrimental, but it wasn't until the final sequence of the game that prompted Trevon Diggs to set social media ablaze with a simple tweet.
Before we get there, allow us to set the stage.
After Allen rushed for a go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter, the Broncos marched down the field trailing 22-21 to get into field goal range. Then, Russell Wilson got sacked on a zero blitz to back Denver up close to midfield.
For whatever reason, Bills head coach Sean McDermott dialed up another zero blitz and Wilson executed the ever-unpopular underthrown pass interference that got the Broncos in the red zone. Kicker Will Lutz missed his initial game-winning 41-yard field goal attempt, but Buffalo had 12 men on the field.
Lutz made sure to get it right the second time and Denver won 24-22 to send the underachieving Bills to an even 5-5 on the season.
Enter Cowboys star Trevon Diggs.
Cowboys' Trevon Diggs wants his brother Stefon Diggs to leave the Bills.
The final sequence alone was catastrophic from a Bills perspective, but Buffalo had four costly turnovers in the game. Allen accounted for three of them with two interceptions and a lost fumble. He now leads the NFL with 11 interceptions and his 51 turnovers since the start of the 2021 season are the most in the league.
Big changes could be coming to Buffalo and it's apparent Diggs wants his older brother to seek greener pastures.
The Pro Bowl cornerback has been adamant about wanting Diggs on the Cowboys. Diggs has expressed frustrated toward Allen in the past and we've seen the younger Diggs use social media in the past to recruit his brother to Dallas.
A move like that would fall right into Jerry Jones' wheelhouse, as it would make the Cowboys a greater talking point than they already are. Unless Diggs was willing to accept a monster pay cut, it's sadly a pipe dream.
CeeDee Lamb is due for a contract extension. At the rate Lamb is playing, he's going to command nothing short of $25 million per year. Diggs currently makes $24 million per year and accounts for cap hits of at least $27 million from 2024-26.
It's impossible in today's NFL to pay two upper-echelon receivers. The Bengals have to choose between Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. The 49ers are faced with a similar predicament with Brandon Aiyuk after they paid Deebo Samuel.
At present, the Chargers are the only team that pays two receivers $20 million annually (Keenan Allen and Mike Williams). Fittingly, only the Saints and Bills are worse off from a cap standpoint going into next season than the Chargers.
The Diggs bros reuniting on the Cowboys would be an awesome story. However, previous restructures make his contract unmovable and Dallas needs to be mindful of upcoming deals for Lamb, Micah Parsons and Dak Prescott.
