The Buffalo Bills are coming off a rough season in which the team was still one of the best teams in the NFL but failed to live up to expectations and had the awful experience of one of their players almost dying on the field during a game.
In 2023, the Bills hope to right the ship and get back on track as one of the league’s elite teams, but now there’s a major concern about star wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
At the end of last season, Diggs was visibly seen shouting at superstar quarterback Josh Allen on the sideline as the team lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL playoffs.
That tension may have carried over to the offseason and mandatory minicamp, with the star wideout not showing up and leaving head coach Sean McDermott “very concerned,” according to Bleacher Report.

These days, star players in professional sports in this country tend to dictate where they play and can force their way out of their current situation at a moment’s notice.
That may ultimately end up being the case for Diggs in Buffalo, as he may be tired of the team failing to reach the Super Bowl when they seem to be one of the league’s elite squads.
Whatever the case may be, the Bills have a serious problem, as they will not be the same team on offense without the two-time All-Pro leading the way in the receiving corps.
Allen should be more concerned than anyone, as he’ll lose his best weapon on offense, putting more pressure on him moving forward.NEXT: Von Miller Gives Update On His Status For Training Camp
