Stefon Diggs joins Jordan Brand, realizing childhood dream

“This is both unreal and surreal"

Buffalo Bills star wideout Stefon Diggs has realized a childhood dream: joining Michael Jordan’s Nike brand.

On Friday, Diggs became the latest member of the Jordan Brand's Jumpman roster. He’ll have custom Jumpman cleats in 2021.

“It's a little bit unreal, coming from where I come from — where people have been lining up for Jordans or camping out for them overnight. I even did it myself when I was younger," Diggs said in a press release. “This is both unreal and surreal, to be a part of a successful brand that everybody knows and respects. Jordan Brand has an elite group of athletes. Everyone plays at a high level.I'll never forget the moment I got the call.”

Diggs joins an elite group of athletes as part of Jordan’s brand, joining forces with NBA stars such as Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum and Zion Williamson. The wideout was the best receiver in football last season, leading the NFL in receptions (127) and yards (1,535). Along with Josh Allen, he played the most pivotal role in Buffalo’s AFC Championship run.

And now, he’ll get to bask in the glory of athletic branding greatness. Diggs is now rightfully recognized as one of the greatest athletes in sports.

He’s received Jordan’s coveted endorsement.
