Relief fills the hearts of Dallas Cowboys fans as the team secures a crucial deal with their standout cornerback, Trevon Diggs, just hours before embarking on their journey to the training camp in Oxnard, California.
While Diggs celebrates his well-deserved new contract, the Cowboys continue to work on negotiating extensions with CeeDee Lamb, Tony Pollard, and Terence Steele.
The details of Trevon Diggs’ new 5-year extension have been revealed by NFL sources, and it’s nothing short of impressive—a whopping $97 million, along with a $21 million signing bonus, that could potentially total up to $104 million with additional incentives.
Since joining the Cowboys in 2020, Diggs has showcased his undeniable talent and skills on the defensive front, making him a sought-after player for a new contract, and the negotiations began soon after the previous season concluded.

Had the deal not materialized, Diggs would have been heading into the 2023 season with his rookie contract’s final year, making him a free agent in 2024.
At only 24 years old, Diggs has already earned a place among the NFL’s elite cornerbacks, a testament to his remarkable start in his professional career. His impressive stats include 17 interceptions, two of which were pick-sixes, 49 blocked passes, and 169 tackles in just 45 games. In the 2021 season, he even led the league with a staggering 11 interceptions.
Beyond his on-field prowess, Diggs has also captured hearts as the loving father of Aaidan Diggs, who became a darling of NFL fans during the Dallas Cowboys’ appearance in HBO’s Hard Knocks in 2021. Aaidan is frequently seen accompanying his father at major NFL events, melting hearts with his adorable presence.
With Diggs’ future secured with the Cowboys and his talent continuing to shine, fans eagerly await his continued success and the team’s prospects with him as a formidable force on the defensive front.
