Bills Trade Watkins To Rams, Acquire Matthews From Eagles

Bills Trade Watkins To Rams, Acquire Matthews From Eagles”

The trade ends a tumultuous three seasons for Watkins in Buffalo.

The trade gives Buffalo two first and second round draft picks in 2018, ammunition for a front office that has been non-committal on starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Matthews was drafted by the Eagles in the second round of the 2014 draft out of Vanderbilt University, and he's been a proven commodity.

The Bills acquired CB E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-round pick from the Rams in exchange for wide receiver Sammy Watkins and a 2018 sixth-round pick. So they chose to move on from Watkins a year early and get a second-round draft pick. If they release a package of players later this month, they could add another 2018 third-round pick as part of the NFL's compensatory draft pick system. Finally, Darby has stopped the opponent 69 times, including 60 solo, last year. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next year unless the Rams slap the franchise tag on him. Matthews has averaged 75 catches, 891 receiving yards and six touchdowns in his first three seasons.

Gaines was beginning his fourth season with the Rams and was on track to backup Kayvon Webster.

Darby has two more years left on his rookie contract, with salaries of $800,000 this year and $1 million next year.

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. Tell us what you think.
