Bills trade Sammy Watkins to Rams, add Jordan Matthews from Eagles

Bills trade Sammy Watkins to Rams, add Jordan Matthews from Eagles”

Watkins had been the Bills starter since Buffalo traded up five spots in the 2014 draft to select him with the No. 4 pick. In three seasons, Watkins has caught 65, 60 and 28.

For now, that looks like good work from first-year general manager Brandon Beane, who was a candidate for the 49ers' opening last winter before they settled on John Lynch.

1 receiver Sammy Watkins and a sixth-round draft choice to the Los Angeles Rams for cornerback E.J. Gaines and a second-round pick.

We've acquired WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 3rd round pick from the Eagles for CB Ronald Darby. So they made a decision to move on from Watkins a year early and get a second-round draft pick.

The Bills continue revamping their receiver group, with Matthews' acquisition coming four days after Buffalo signed veteran free agent Anquan Boldin.

He will hope to revive his career in LA with the Rams, who needed to improve the supporting cast around under-pressure second-year quarterback Jared Goff.

In his three years as a member of the Buffalo Bills, Watkins caught 153 passes for 2,459 and 17 touchdowns. Both Matthews and Gaines are entering the final season of their contracts, so it's possible neither will have an extended future in Buffalo.

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.

So which team did the best?
