Stefon Diggs left the Vikings no choice, and they finally pulled the trigger.

Diggs' social media mismanagement (at least as far as Minnesota is concerned), reached a head on Monday afternoon, as he stated in no uncertain terms that he was ready for a change. Pair this with the Vikings actively looking for a trade partner, and those talks likely sped up as the evening progressed.

Finally, the Bills stepped in, providing the Vikings with a package of draft picks they couldn't turn down.

That is what we call a haul, and frankly it's warranted for a receiver of Diggs' caliber. If anything, it puts the Texans' trade of DeAndre Hopkins, which netted pennies on the dollar, even more embarrassing for Bill O'Brien.

Diggs is coming off a career year in terms of receiving yardage, and now that he's finally out of Adam Thielen's shadow, he's free to thrive with Josh Allen delivering deep balls at a rapid pace.

Buffalo was determined to get Allen a reliable weapon, and were willing to pay up to do so. Minnesota sheds their headache in what looks like a win-win for both sides, and a major retroactive loss for Houston.
