Former Bills WR Stefon Diggs already misses Texans OTAs

Call it a case of sour grapes. Call it “living in our heads rent-free.” Call it an inability to get over our ex.

We just called it pretty fun.

The Houston Texans began the organized team activity phase of their offseason workouts on Tuesday, without a few key offensive contributors: Laremy Tunsil, a stalwart left tackle who, according to ProFootballTalk, trains only regularly during the offseason, and Stefon Diggs. , a four-time Pro Bowl selection the Texans acquired from the Buffalo Bills earlier this spring.

If you hear a faint noise in the distance, it may be the collective “okay, okay, okay” emitting from homes across Western New York.

For those not paying attention to Diggs’ prolonged ‘feud’ with the Bills as if it were the latest HBO drama, last year’s OTAs served as a critical episode. After engaging in a shouting match with Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen on the sideline during the team’s 2022 Divisional Round loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the receiver did not report to the team’s voluntary workouts during the entire month of May. He still didn’t report when mandatory OTAs began in June, and head coach Sean McDermott stated he was “very concerned.”

Instead, Diggs reported the next day, reiterating several times over the summer that it was still his intention to retire Bill.

It’s funny how things work sometimes.

It’s important to note that the Tuesday practice that Diggs missed in Houston was volunteer; in no way was he contractually obligated to report. At 30 years old and with 9,995 career receiving yards, May reps aren’t of utmost importance to him, and he’s already spent time developing a relationship with Houston quarterback CJ Stroud this offseason.

That being said, it’s just a little nostalgic and hilarious to read that he already missed an OTA practice. It’s deja vu all over again.

The Bills also began their voluntary OTAs at Orchard Park on Tuesday, with quarterback Josh Allen spending time developing chemistry with free agent Curtis Samuel, rookie Keon Coleman and the rest of the team’s revamped receiving corps.
