Minnesota Vikings fans are very familiar with how current Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs utilizes his personal Twitter account. During his tenure with the Vikings, Diggs would constantly share vague or cryptic posts on Twitter that would send the entire fan base into a frenzy.

One of his Twitter posts actually played a part in the All-Pro wide receiver eventually getting traded to the Bills during the 2020 offseason. So, typically, there are intentions behind the mysterious posts Diggs tends to make on Twitter from time to time.

Knowing all of this certainly makes what he posted on Twitter on Friday something that probably shouldn't be ignored, especially by Bills fans.

Will the Buffalo Bills move on from former Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs this offseason?

Near the end of Diggs' tenure in Minnesota, many could sense that his exit was close to happening. For the last few months, it has felt like something similar has been going on with the wide receiver in Buffalo.

There were rumors of drama brewing between Diggs and Bills starting quarterback Josh Allen last season, but both players did their best to deny there being any truth to anything.

Then, after Buffalo fired Ken Dorsey as the team's offensive coordinator in the middle of the 2023 campaign and replaced him with Joe Brady, the former Vikings wide receiver saw his numbers go way down during the final stretch of the season.

The Bills have also been parting with a number of longtime contributors this offseason in an attempt to clear some much-needed cap space. In the last few weeks, Buffalo has moved on from wide receiver Gabe Davis, safety Jordan Poyer, center Mitch Morse, and cornerback
Tre'Davious White.

Will Diggs be the next player the Bills decide to part with? It's possible, but they might have to make a decision very soon.

If Buffalo chooses to release the former Minnesota wide receiver before the end of Saturday, then the transaction will only result in a loss of $3.24 million in cap space, according to Spotrac. However, if the Bills were to cut him between March 17 and May 31, then they would lose $21.74 million in cap space.

So, if Buffalo is going to move on from Diggs before this year's NFL Draft, that decision will likely be made in the very near future. Otherwise, the Bills will have to wait until after June 1 to avoid having to deal with a significant loss of salary cap space.

It's important to also note that Buffalo releasing Diggs before the end of Saturday would also result in the team being left with $31.1 million in dead cap from his current contract. So that seems like something that could impact their decision about whether to keep him or not as well.

The Bills could also trade him this offseason, but just like a release before the end of Saturday, any trade finalized before June 1 would result in the team losing $3.24 million in cap space.

It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out. But we can assume that Diggs will likely provide everyone with more cryptic posts on his Twitter account until a solution is reached.
