ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The Buffalo Bills restructured All-Pro wide receiver Stefon Diggs' contract, converting $11,718,333 million of Stefon Diggs' base salary into a signing bonus, as ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates was first to report on Tuesday.

The move will help ease the Bills cap concerns heading into another cap-restricted 2021 season.

Yates reported the restructuring will free up $7,812,222 in cap space for Buffalo next season.

Diggs is coming off of his first year with the Bills, hauling in 127 catches for 1,535 yards in the regular season.
