Bills acquire WR Jordan Matthews & 3rd-round pick from Eagles for Darby

11:15am

The Buffalo Bills have traded wide receiver Sammy Watkins and a sixth-round pick in next year's draft to the Los Angeles Rams for cornerback E.J.

This is a huge move for the Rams, and one that comes with no shortage of risk. Unfortunately, he was in the final year of his contract, and there was a logjam at the position.

Instead of the players the Bills received in return, the key to whether this trade will be successful for Buffalo is the draft picks they acquired.

Kenyans troop to Polling Stations to Vote new President
The government deployed more than 150,000 security personnel, including wildlife rangers, to protect 41,000 polling stations. Secretary of State John Kerry is among thousands of worldwide observers who have been monitoring the election process.

By trading for Darby the team fixed that problem.

In the first game of his pro career, Darby intercepted Indianapolis' Andrew Luck. Darby, 23, is expected to immediately start for the Eagles, leaving Jalen Mills, Patrick Robinson, rookie Rasul Douglas and Ron Brooks to compete for two other spots. He has shown that he can be the playmaker that the Eagles need.

Matthews, meanwhile, was Philadelphia's second round pick in 2014 and had been a cog in the Eagles' fast-paced offense.

Darby is under contract for two more years, which is perhaps where the Bills get off asking for more out of the swap. Philadelphia did sign wide receivers Alshon Jeffrey and Torrey Smith in the offseason. Young players such as Greg Ward Jr. There were just 26 wide receivers who saw at least a 20 percent share of their teams targets past year, and with the company surrounding Matthews, it's hard to say he'd even get that. The team will miss Matthews for sure, but the cupboard is in no means bare. Since the team basically would have had to choose between the two, they decided to make a move now and continue to build toward the future.

Want your voice heard? Watkins joins Woods and slot receiver Cooper Kupp in three-receiver sets, putting Austin's role on the team in serious question.

"I think from our perspective and Jordan's perspective, everything's been incredibly positive with Jordan Matthews and our conversations with him and his agent", Roseman said. He came to work everyday without complaint and showed that blue-collar toughness fans loved. But by the same token, we weren't picking up the phone and calling teams on Jordan because of his value to our team. It never gets any easier in this business because however good he is as a player, he's a better person.
