With the Buffalo Bills sending Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans, Denver Broncos star Courtland Sutton may now be the top wide receiver available on the trade market.

The Buffalo Bills traded the four-time Pro Bowler to the Texans, along with 2024 sixth and 2025 fifth-round picks, in exchange for a 2025 second-round pick. Houston then adjusted Diggs’ contract, making him eligible to enter free agency next year. With Diggs no longer available, the value for Courtland Sutton should only increase from here.

The Broncos already traded top wideout Jerry Jeudy to the Cleveland Browns for 2024 fifth and sixth-round draft picks. Having also released starting QB Russell Wilson and All-Pro safety Justin Simmons, it’s clear the Broncos are in full-scale rebuilding mode.

So GM George Paton should be keen on trading Sutton for extra draft capital. And these Buffalo Bills just so happen to be the ideal landing spot for the 28-year-old.

Buffalo’s top three wide receivers right now are free agent pickup Curtis Samuel, 30-year-old Mack Hollins and Khalil Shakir. The Bills can definitely get another weapon for Josh Allen with the No. 28 pick, but adding Courtland Sutton at a reasonable price would put this offense in a much better position to succeed without Diggs.

What The Buffalo Bills Could Offer For Courtland Sutton

Seeing what the Broncos got for a younger and more explosive WR like Jeudy, they shouldn’t expect to get a better offer for Courtland Sutton. And if Buffalo only got a second-rounder for Diggs, they can reasonably expect to acquire Sutton at a bargain price.

The Bills should offer their 2024 fourth (No. 133) and fifth (No. 163) overall to the Broncos in exchange for Sutton and a 2024 sixth-round pick (No. 203 overall).

This trade gives Allen a new potential No. 1 receiver, a player who has surpassed 700 receiving yards in each of his five healthy NFL seasons. At the very worst, Sutton is a No. 2, with Samuel or a rookie (if Buffalo uses their first-rounder on a WR) taking over as the No. 1 option.
