Buffalo Bills reshape team in two surprising trades with Rams and Eagles

Of course we're covering the newest Los Angeles Rams wide receiver - Sammy Watkins - and the other moving parts in Buffalo's two trades.

In addition to Matthews, the Bills will receive a 2018 third-round pick as they send cornerback Ronald Darby to Philadelphia.

The Eagles this offseason drafted Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas in the second and third rounds, signed veteran Patrick Robinson and brought back guys like Jalen Mills, Aaron Grymes, Ron Brooks and C.J. Smith. They acquired a second-round pick from L.A. and a third-rounder from the Eagles, while also sending a sixth-round pick to the Rams. If Watkins can stay healthy, this is a player who posted 2,000-plus yards and 15 touchdowns over his first two National Football League seasons. Bills starter Tyrod Taylor's future is uncertain beyond this season. McDermott said, before outlining his message. "We felt like this was the right decision for us".

Just don't call it a rebuilding plan, Beane said.

Roseman said the Birds weren't apprised of the Watkins deal before closing their trade.

"It was tough, but at the end of the day, we know what we are getting into when we play this game", Ertz said after practice on Saturday.

Speaking after the two-hour session, head coach Doug Pederson said he understood the emotion, but also made it clear he was ready to move on - and the players should be too.

In Buffalo, Jordan will be reunited with running back LeSean McCoy, who was his Eagles teammate in 2014 before being traded to the Bills. "We have to put a positive lining. We all lose targets, but I think the main goal is to win games and be productive, and I think that will help us as an offense".

Agholor played out of the slot in his final season at USC and parlayed tremendous success (104 receptions, 1,313 yards, and 12 touchdowns) into becoming the Eagles' first-round draft pick.

Watkins has been hampered by an assortment of injuries and limited to playing just eight games last season after having surgery for a broken left foot. Matthews also has experience training in Florida with Bills receiver Anquan Boldin.

Jordan Matthews wasn't ideal, but he caught 225 passes and had 19 touchdown catches in three seasons with the Eagles. Elliott's ban means the Cowboys will have four players suspended when last year's NFC East champions start the season in a month. "But in this league you're not going to be able to get anything unless you give something". For real. Y'all are going to see it though.

Darby started 29 games for the Bills the last two years.

In this December 24, 2016, file photo, Rams cornerback E.J. Gaines watches the play during the first half of a game against the San Francisco 49ers, in Los Angeles. He won a starting job in 2015, but then got hurt before the season started. Gaines had been the primary backup to starters Trumaine Johnson and Webster.

On Saturday, however, the players couldn't hide their disappointment in the team's decision to trade away receiver Jordan Matthews.

Some fans liked the deals, as they feel as though they will help the Bills in the long-term. "We're building a football team that we want to compete in the short and long term and be good for a long time".

The Eagles first game with Darby on the roster will be Thursday, August 17, when the Bills come to town for the second preseason game for both squads.
