With the Minnesota Vikings, he was already showing promise as an emerging star.
Perhaps playing with quarterback Josh Allen inspired him to kick his gear to a higher level.
That’s why Diggs has been a two-time Pro Bowler and a First-Team All-Pro in 2020.
In his first season with the Bills, the former Maryland standout had a career-high 1,535 yards and eight touchdowns.
Last season, he finished with 1,225 yards and ten touchdowns.
Knowing that he is a valuable asset to the squad, the Bills gave him a four-year, $96 million contract extension with $70 million in guaranteed money.
The guarantee amount includes a $21.5 million signing bonus.
With a deal that big, Diggs is set to prove that the Bills made the right decision.
Hence, he is completing catches like this at training camp.

NFL insider Dov Kleiman said, “Good luck covering Stefon Diggs this season.”
In the accompanying video, Diggs went past cornerback Dane Jackson before completing a one-handed catch.
Doing more of those catches will help the Bills reach the Super Bowl for the first time since 1993.
They have been close to that goal the past two seasons but the Kansas City Chiefs always had other plans.
A Vaunted Bills Receiving Corps
The Bills will be immediately put to the test against the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams to open the 2022 NFL season.
That receiving trio could bring great fortune to the Bills this season.
