Former Clemson wideout Sammy Watkins traded to Rams

  • Eagles Incumbent Corners Welcome Ronald Darby Increased Competition

Once you read deeper into it, it starts to make more and more sense. Clearly, the Rams value him as a legitimate No. 1 option for quarterback Jared Goff, who the team drafted first overall during the 2016 draft.

Buffalo adding a couple picks is a nice component of these deals, and they also saved money. With Matthews likely on the outs with Philadelphia heading into the final year of his rookie deal, there had been tons of trade rumors and the Eagles finally pulled the trigger on a deal which returns a starting corner they desperately needed.

So what exactly did the Bills get out of all this?

Running back LeSean McCoy, like Taylor, was surprised by the trades, but unlike Taylor, he knows what it feels like to get the shocking news that you never saw coming.

Going to the Bills should move him up draft boards.

The 23-year-old Darby totaled 69 stops and 12 passes defensed in 14 games with the Bills in 2016, which was also his second year in the league.

When he was on the field, though, Watkins was a stud. Matthews is more of a steady possession receiver. (That's insane, especially over 96 targets.) Among the 14 wide receivers in 2015 to gain 100 or more Reception NEP, Watkins's 60 receptions were the fewest by 9 catches. But it might be good for Goff and bad for Watkins. During his rookie season, Watkins had 128 targets from Kyle Orton and E.J.

However, Matthews is still a talented receiver who could be effective in the upcoming season.

Watkins has been dealing with a foot injury that limited the wide receiver to just eight games previous year after having an operation to fix a broken foot.

His skillset also meshed well with that of Tyrod Taylor, a player who, this summer, nearly became an ex-Bill himself.

Postol during an interview with Newsweek called the missiles "a hoax", although Friday's report doesn't use that language. He is right: This time, North Korea has detailed plans for a missile test that would land in the waters near Guam.


Sammy Watkins is Hollywood bound.

Matthews, who like Watkins is also in just his fourth season, had 73 receptions for 804 yards and three touchdowns in the 2016 season. The Bills brought back Tyrod Taylor, Kyle Williams, and Lorenzo Alexander with the goal of winning in 2017. "They played a certain look, and I was open". As players and coaches, they coach and we play. He'll now be replaced by E.J Gaines. Two different visions, but not necessarily competing visions.

The big difference, though, was in Success Rate. But McDermott says without the players, Matthews and Gaines, the deals wouldn't happen. Watkins required a second operation in January after aggravating the injury last season.

Trading away Darby is an interesting decision since the Bills lack depth in the secondary. However, after the draft night trade, and these trades, there's a clear contradiction in their actions.

What both Matthews and Gaines have in common is that both are set to be unrestricted free agents after this season.

Because, as the numbers show, it won't be.

With the second- and third-round picks acquired, the Bills now own two first-round picks, two in the second, and two in the third for 2018.

In the months that followed, they went about crossing off items with admirable meticulousness.

The Bills are a team trying to build for the future.
