The Buffalo Bills offence just got a lot scarier for opposing teams.

The team announced that they have acquired veteran wide receiver Stefon Diggs (along with a 2020 seventh round pick) from the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a collection of draft picks: a 2020 first-round pick, fifth-round pick, sixth-round pick, and a 2021 fourth-round pick.

Diggs, who was selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, had spent the first six seasons of his professional football career with the Vikings organization.

The 26-year old is coming off an impressive 2019 campaign where he posted 63 receptions for 1,130 receiving yards, and six touchdowns in 15 games.

He has been requesting a trade for quite some time, so he finally got his wish.

Falcons owner convinced that 2020 NFL season will be shortened to 16 games

The NFL season isn’t supposed to be underway until September, but the coronavirus could even impact that.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank certainly thinks the structure of the season could look different due to the aftershock of this Covid-19 pandemic. He predicts that the regular season will be cut down to 16 games.

“If I had to speculate now, and I use the word speculate because that’s really all it is, I would say yes,” said Blank.

“Only because it’s so far away from where we are today. I could easily see camps being shorter, players being tested on a daily basis, things of that nature. No fan attendance. Things like that. We may have fewer preseason games, which probably wouldn’t be the end of the world. But I think by September, my hope is by the time the regular season starts, that we’ll be able to bring people together in some form or fashion in a safe manner and play.”

It remains to be seen if this comes to fruition. The United States’ progress in their recovery from coronavirus over the next month will determine a lot in the world of sports moving forward.

Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans admits it feels “surreal” that he will get to play alongside Tom Brady in 2020

Count Mike Evans as one of the many in Tampa Bay who are ecstatic that Tom Brady is a member of the Buccaneers.

The Veteran wide receiver, who has been a Pro Bowler three of the past four years, is beyond excited that he will be catching passes from the greatest quarterback of all-time in 2020.

“It’s surreal…He’s about to be my quarterback, man. I know you don’t know football like that, but I’ve played six years in the NFL, and I haven’t been to the playoffs yet. Tom Brady has won six Super Bowls.” said Evans.

the 26-year old was already putting up great numbers with a mediocre quarterback at the helm, so you can only imagine how productive he will be with Brady calling the shots. In 2019, Evans posted 1157 receiving yards, 67 receptions and eight touchdowns over 13 games.

Brady, along with Evans and star receiver Chris Godwin, are aiming to lead the Buccaneers to their first postseason appearance since 2007.
