In his first season with the , is on his way to the best year of his career. After 13 games, Diggs has 100 catches for 1,167 yards and five touchdowns, putting him on pace for a 123-1436-6 campaign. The yardage already marks a new career high, while his 100 receptions lead the league if he catches just three more pa ses by the end of the season, he'll have a new high-water mark in that category as well.Of course Mikko Koivu Jersey , this is Diggs' first season in Buffalo because he was traded there by the this past offseason. The Bills Thomas Vanek Jersey sent their first-round pick to Minnesota in exchange for Diggs' services, marking the end of a tenure that was at times thrilling but also at times rocky.
