    Yes, we got a 2nd round pick from them for moving out of the 1st round this season.
    "In the deal, the Vikings acquired the Texans' No. 23 pick along with a seventh-round pick (No. 232 overall). The Texans received the Vikings' second-round pick (No. 42), their sixth-round pick (No. 188) and their second-round pick in 2025."

    We still have

    2-24
    2-59

    For this year's draft picks

    For the first time ever, I can legitimately say that the Texans might be the best team in football.

    CJ
    Mixon
    Nico
    Diggs
    Tank
    Schultz

    What a powerhouse. Don’t see how people can have a problem with getting Diggs. This is stuff NFL fans DREAM of their franchise doing.

    What a massive offseason.

    I'm wondering what's the catch?

    Injury, injury history, locker room cancer, off-field issues, big contract, due for a big contract, etc.

    Only a 2nd round pick and Texans receive picks?


    Eta- just checked his stats. He's 31 and entering his 10th season (time flies). Thought he was only about 7 seasons in. His production dropped last year. Not sure if hw was he Buffalo's #1 WR, but if he's Texans' #3, he should have good numbers and open more for Nico and Tank.

    All the anger that was felt for only getting a 2nd rounder for Dhop and having to take in David's contract has completely faded. Bills Mafia is probably not liking it.

    trading Diggs to a conference rival seems stupid

    Thats the only thing that worries me. That he rubs the locker room who seems already tight knit, the wrong way. Hopefully CJ and a coach like Demeco can turn him around

    His contract is only guaranteed for next year, is it not?? Also, his dead cap would only be $8M after June 1, so it stands to reason cutting him following 2 seasons probably would not cost us much of anything.

    This trade crashed spotrac lmao.

    I guess Nick is going all in on offense. I can dig it. An unstoppable QB and elite WR corp is absolutely a championship blueprint you can follow.

    The compensation is completely reasonable, too. Good value.

    Whoa, Diggs is a huge get. The Texans aren't f--king around this offseason.

    Looks good on paper. So do the Chefs and Ravens.

    I like the trade but have reservations. Diggs is on the downside but he isn't washed up.
    I'm surprised the Bills weren't able to get more for him. Shows the league doesn't value Diggs very much and he's not "that guy" anymore.

    He'll "hit the ground running" from game 1, unlike a rookie WR drafted at #42/59/86.

    Trading this 2025 pick allows the Texans to draft defense at #42 and #59 this year. I love it!

    Texans are throwing caution to the wind and taking maximum advantage of CJ being on a rookie contract.
    They aren't focusing on next year but are "all-in" for 2024!

    We all knew something was going to happen when they restructured Tytus Howard's contract.
