Sammy Watkins Traded To Rams; Bills Acquire Jordan Matthews In Separate Trade

Sammy Watkins Traded To Rams; Bills Acquire Jordan Matthews In Separate Tradeā€

The Bills also received a second and a third round pick in the upcoming 2018 draft.

We've acquired CB E.J. Gaines and a 2018 2nd round pick from the Rams for WR Sammy Watkins and a 2018 6th round pick. Then, Buffalo announced that it acquired Philadelphia Eagles receiver Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round draft pick in exchange for cornerback Ronald Darby.

This is a breaking news story.

Watkins had been the Bills starter since Buffalo traded up five spots in the 2014 draft to select him with the No. 4 pick.

The Bills' front office was boosted by an offseason regime change that saw first-year coach Sean McDermott get more say in personnel moves. His speed, size, and ability to make catches in traffic should have Rams fans, who watched an abysmal offense previous year, excited. The Floridian claims 2459 yards of gains air in the National Football League, having picked up 17 balls in the end zone. Last season, Watkins played in just eight games and totaled 430 yards and two scores on 28 catches. Watkins required a second operation in January after aggravating the injury last season.

Watkins, a Clemson alum, joins the receiver-starved Rams who are looking for capable targets for last year's top-overall pick Jared Goff, who struggled while the offense finished dead last in both yardage and scoring. But do you really want the Bills' two best receivers from a year ago? Gaines and a second rounder.
