Dion Hawkins: Anything Is Possible With Josh Allen At QB

Buffalo Bills OT Dion Hawkins says losing the stat-based weight’ of WR Stefon Diggs ‘hits you in  a different way’.

He’s not wrong. Even in an injury hit 2023, Diggs still had at least 100 receptions, eight touchdowns and 1,000 yards receiving for the fourth season in a row.

Diggs has 445 catches for 5,372 yards and 37 touchdowns since joining the Bills in 2020. In five seasons as a Viking, he had 4,623 yards and 30 touchdowns on 365 receptions.

Dion Hawkins feels Buffalo is still competitive as long as it has Josh Allen under center. However, he acknowledged the seismic loss of Diggs to their WR room.

“The Stefon Diggs one, it was definitely a haymaker,” said Dion Hawkins

“A blind haymaker. But, you know, I have learned that in this world, in this career that I’m in, that pieces shuffle and things move around all of the time. … For a player that has that type of impact and popularity and stat-based weight for their career, it just hits you in a different way. Like I said, I love my teammates and I am loyal to my organization. So I trust them. I think that they know what they’re doing. I know that they know what they’re doing. But we got (No.) 17, and when you got Josh (Allen), anything is possible, truly.”

“That window is always open when you’ve got guys like me and you got guys like Josh,” Dawkins said. 

“When you’ve got a team of guys that lead with good hearts, good athleticism, good football, and when we put that helmet on and them pads on and that jersey and it says Bills, that window is always open. It’s always open. Like it could be a little bit more, but nah, it’s open. And it’ll always be open.

“As long as Josh is at quarterback, that’s what I can talk for — (Sean) McDermott is our coach and the Pegulas is our owner and (Brandon) Beane is our GM, that window is open forever.”
