Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs is not at the team’s mandatory minicamp. Head Coach Sean McDermott called Diggs’ absence “very concerning” prior to Tuesday’s minicamp practice.
Diggs’ agent Adisa Bakari told ESPN that he is in town, “took his physical, met with the head coach and GM the past two days and “will be there for the entirety of the minicamp.”
According to the team, Diggs was present on Monday and on Tuesday morning. The Bills say Diggs left before the start of Tuesday’s practice.
The Bills had just signed Diggs to a four-year, $96 million extension last offseason. He is expected to be one the key players to help them capture a championship.
The 29 year-old Diggs is set to enter his 9th season in the NFL and fourth in Buffalo. He’s a three-time Pro Bowler and one-time All-Pro.
Diggs caused a stir when he showed his displeasure on the sideline during the Bills 27-10 divisional-round playoff loss at home to the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Pro Bowl wide receiver had a verbal exchange with star quarterback Josh Allen. After the loss, Diggs left the stadium without speaking to reporters.
