NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday that Diggs and the Cowboys signed a five-year, $97 million extension, citing sources. With incentives, the $21.25 million signing bonus is potentially up to $104 million.
Diggs is tied with Marson Lattimore as the NFL's fifth-highest-paid corner, after Jaire Alexander, Denzel Ward, Jalen Ramsey, and Marlon Humphrey.
The two-time Pro Bowler is an outside gambler who can produce game-changing plays but also lose yards. The Cowboys expect Diggs to improve as he matures.
Diggs' 17 picks in his first three seasons behind just Walls' 22 from 1981-1983. Diggs, Marcus Peters (19/55) and Richard Sherman (20/57) are the only players with 15-plus interceptions and 45-plus passes defensed in his first three seasons since passes defensed became an official metric in 1999.
