Stefon Diggs, Justin Jefferson compose one of great NFL trades

Stefon Diggs wanted out of Minnesota. The Bills needed a wide receiver so they sent a first-round pick to the Vikings in the 2020 NFL draft to land Diggs.

The Vikings used the pick to select LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson.

It didn’t take Minnesota’s 33-30 thrilling overtime win at Buffalo for NFL fans to know this has turned out to be one of the best trades in league history … for each team.

Diggs had 12 receptions for 128 yards, including a stunning one-hand grab.

Jefferson went him better, corraling 10 passes for 193 yards and a touchdown.

Jefferson also made one of the great grabs in NFL history on a 4th-and-18 late in the fourth quarter of the masterpiece.

Jefferson has 355 receptions for 4,076 receiving yards and 21 touchdowns in basically 2 1/2 seasons as a Viking.

Diggs has 302 receptions 3,745 yards and 25 touchdowns over the same span as a Bill.

On a day when Minnesota won and Buffalo lost, neither team came up short in this deal.
