New Houston Texans receiver Stefon Diggs dressed to impress Monday night at the Met Gala in New York City Monday evening, even though he nearly didn’t make the event. 

Diggs, the newly acquired pas-catcher from the Buffalo Bills, was caught at Houston’s airport due to weather conditions on Sunday, but the plane touched down in time for him to meet with designers. On the red carpet, the four-time Pro Bowler wore a custom midnight blue H&M suit and rocked the outfit like he hoped to rock the AFC South competition.

“I was 100% confident in it, since I saw the drawing,” Diggs told Vogue magazine. I wish I was here yesterday, but they did such a diligent job doing my measurements at the first fitting, so it just kind of worked out.”

According to Vogue, Diggs accessorized the look with several Greg Yuna necklaces, a Nick Bindi ring, and Shayan Afshar pear drop earrings. Big into fashion, Diggs wanted to make sure he looked confident when taking in the event for the second time. 

While Diggs impressed back in New York, the Texans are hopeful they’ll be getting a hungry version of him on gamedays this fall. After trading a 2025 second-round pick to the Bills to acquire him, Houston voided the final three years of his current deal and added an extra $2.5 million to his 2024 salary, thus upping his value to $22.5 million this fall.

Diggs, 30, will be playing for a new lucrative contract this fall when the AFC South champions take the field. He joins an offensive personnel headlined by breakout targets Nico Collins and Tank Dell, along with Pro Bowl running back Joe Mixon and tight end Dalton Schultz. 

Even though Diggs’ production dipped during his final season in Buffalo, he remains one of the league’s more proactive pass-catchers. Since joining the Bills in 2020, he has led the NFL in catches with 445 and averaged over 1,100 yards per campaign in Orchard Park. 

He’s also one of four receivers in league history to record four consecutive seasons with 100-plus receptions, joining Davante Adams, Marvin Harrison Sr. and Antonio Brown. 

Diggs told Vouge he’s already begun putting in the work with teammates before the start of mandatory minicamp, especially reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year C.J. Stroud. 

It’s a great vibe,” he said. “We know we have something specialwe’ve got a lot of very talented individuals, we’ve got a young star quarterback. Now, we’re putting the rubber on the road. There’s a lot of camaraderie. You can feel the energy: Everybody’s getting along, competing at a high level and working extremely hard.”

The Texans return to NRG Stadium for the start of rookie minicamp this weekend.
