Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs always wanted to play with his older brother, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
Because of their age gap, Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs never got to play with his older brother, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
Though they both grew up in Maryland, the elder Diggs brother first made it into the NFL as a fifth-round pick by the Minnesota Vikings in 2015. After five years in the Twin Cities, he was traded to Buffalo in a blockbuster trade. Diggs has been a huge part of the Bills’ rise to prominence in the AFC over the last two seasons. At 28 years old, he has several more seasons left in the tank.
The younger Diggs brother played all four years at Alabama in Nick Saban’s defensive backfield. He was taken in the second round by the Cowboys in the 2020 NFL Draft. Still on his rookie contract, he has two more seasons left before he either hits free agency or gets slapped with the franchise tag as a former second-round pick. At 23 years old, his best football is very much ahead of him.
That does not change the fact that he thinks No. 14 at wide receiver would be incredible for Dallas.
Trevon Diggs may be recruiting his brother Stefon Diggs to the Dallas Cowboys
Dallas may be in need of a true No. 1 wide receiver after the Amari Cooper trade with the Cleveland Browns, but keep in mind who Diggs’ 2020 draft classmate is: Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb. Though Lamb could totally coexist in a receiving corps with Diggs’ perennial Pro Bowl older brother, Dallas drafted him to become the team’s bonafide No. 1 wide receiver option.
While it was shocking when the elder Diggs brother forced his way out of town during the 2020 NFL offseason, it paved the way for another potential blockbuster trade to happen. If he could get the Vikings to trade him to the Bills, maybe he could reunite with his younger brother in Dallas? Though it helps that the Bills and Cowboys play in opposite conferences, a trade is not likely here.
One could argue the Bills have as good of a chance as any team in the league to win Super Bowl 57 in Glendale. Dallas is a serious contender to come out of the NFC, but keep in mind that the Cowboys have not played in a conference championship game since the Bill Clinton Administration. Diggs may be a businessman, but it would be bad business to bail on Buffalo now.
The Diggs brothers may play together one day, but NFL free agency would have to be involved.
