Reports emerged on Monday that All-Pro wide receiver Stefon Diggs is unhappy with his current standing with the Buffalo Bills and that he would like to leave for greener pastures. Diggs is one of the top wideouts in the NFL today, which is why it comes as no surprise that this bombshell report made all sorts of headlines across the league.
Stephen A. Smith Reports Steffon Diggs ‘Wants Out’
Stephen A. Smith is one of the most renowned broadcasters in the industry today. This is exactly why many consider him to be a very reliable source. It was the ESPN analyst himself who dropped this shocking bit of news about Diggs:
“Brother wants out,” Smith said. “I’m just telling you what I know, I’ve got my own sources. Brother wants out. He don’t want to be in Buffalo anymore. I have my sources, Diggs got to be there, but he would prefer to be gone because he’s lost a level of belief in the Buffalo Bills. That’s right, I said it.”
Smith did not cite his own source, but he sounded adamant about his report. Stephen A even went as far as saying that Diggs “didn’t want to talk to nobody” and that there was some “friction” that had to be settled during training camp.
Stefon Diggs on Rumored Desire to Jump Ship: ‘100% Not True’
Stefon Diggs has caught wind of this shocking report and the Bills star has now come out with his own statement regarding the same:
“100% not true. I don’t know who the source 😒 is but I thought i nip this shit in the bud already,” Diggs wrote in his tweet.
100% not true. I don’t know who the source 😒 is but I thought i nip this shit in the bud already.

Stefon Diggs just completely refuted Stephen A Smith’s report here. It’s not everyday that Smith gets rejected like this, but this is clearly an outright denial straight from the horse’s mouth. I guess Stephen A will need to have a long conversation with whoever his source is.
This does not mean, however, that Diggs’ future with the Bills is completely safe. While he has denied a desire to leave at the soonest possible time, it doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s the happiest camper in Buffalo.
