Stefon Diggs was traded from the Bills to the Houston Texans in a blockbuster deal on Wednesday, marking an end to an era in Buffalo.

Diggs kept quiet until later Wednesday night when he posted a lengthy and emotional Instagram caption dedicated to his teammates and fans to celebrate the past four seasons in Buffalo.

"I can't begin to experss the amount of love and respect I have for the city of Buffalo," Diggs wrote. "Four of the best years of my life, the city welcomed me with open arms. I'm forever grateful for you all and the @buffalobills organization! Something special was built over these years with some very special men, that will always have a place in my heart.

"Billsmafia, so many great memories created throughout the years. Those games were crazy because of you. Sadly good things come to an end until we meet again."

The Bills received a 2025 second-round pick via Minnesota from the Texans in the trade in exchange for sending Diggs, a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick to Houston.

Diggs's four years in Buffalo end with him catching 445 passes for 5,372 yards and 37 touchdowns. He was a Pro Bowler in all four seasons there.
