Stefon Diggs' 2018 salary already increased by about $1 million, courtesy of the NFL's proven performance escalator program.
So Diggs will make roughly $1.9 million next season, which should be his last as a bargain for an NFL team. If the Vikings enter negotiations this summer with Adisa Bakari, who represents Diggs as well as the Steelers' Le'Veon Bell, they'll have to eventually make him one of the highest-paid players on the team.
"God is good," Diggs wrote on his verified Twitter account after Jarvis Landry reportedly agreed to a five-year, $75 million extension with the Browns. "Congrats bro bro."
Landry's deal in Cleveland is just the latest example of the receiver's power in today's NFL. Sammy Watkins can earn nearly $34 million in two years during his new deal in Kansas City. Allen Robinson, coming off a torn ACL, got $18 million fully guaranteed (up to $42 million in three years) from Chicago.
