NFL World Reacts: Cowboys Stephon Gilmore Trade News

Nothing much from Diggs other than the smirking emoji as the Cowboys finally acquired a No. 2 cornerback to line up opposite of him

Current New Orleans Saints safety Tyrann Mathieu lent his thoughts on the new corner pairing in Dallas. 

“Gilmore/Diggs/Wilson with that D line,” Mathieu said. “They’ll catch plenty interceptions next year!”

While Buffalo Bills running back Nyheim Hines said, “Gilly and Diggs about to be lit out there.” 

The Cowboys now have a five-time NFL Pro-Bowler, all for the cost of a fifth-round pick, to pair with Diggs, a two-time Pro-Bowler in his own right. 

Gilmore played in 16 games recording two interceptions, and 11 passes defended last season with the Colts at the age of 32. While Diggs showed strides of improvement from his second season. 

No, Diggs didn’t enjoy the same interception production he did in 2021; he also didn’t allow as many yards. Diggs allowed just 760 yards in coverage, an improvement from the year before when he allowed over 1,000.
