  • 6 things to know about new Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews

We've heard rumblings about Matthews being traded all offseason, but I don't think anyone expected the Bills to be the team to jump on him, especially when they signed Anquan Boldin just last week. In three seasons, Watkins has caught 65, 60 and 28. Mack Hollins, who scored a 38-yard touchdown Thursday night in Green Bay, is listed as the backup to Torrey Smith on one side, while Marcus Johnson is behind Alshon Jeffery on the other. He was a second-round pick (50th overall) in the 2015 draft. Through his first two seasons Darby has only missed three games with 137 tackles, 33 passes defensed, and two interceptions. "It's hard to pull the trigger on a trade like that when you're giving up that kind of player and person".

According to Rotowire, Darby has great speed and elite jumping ability, and at 5'11, 193 he's a bigger corner who will have to lock down some of the top receivers in the National Football League this season.

Last season, with Wentz under center and head coach Doug Pederson calling the plays, Matthews led the team with 117 targets.

Darby is under contract for two more years, which is perhaps where the Bills get off asking for more out of the swap.




"This is a passing-driven league", Roseman said. You'll always be my boy both on & off the field.

The trade has a deep impact on two positions that were most in need of a revamp after last season. The Eagles have several different options for the slot, starting with Nelson Agholor, who'll get the first chance to prove that his impressive training camp signifies an awakening after two dismal seasons.

"E.J. has been a dedicated professional during his time with us and we wish him and his family the best in their future endeavors".

In Buffalo, Jordan will be reunited with running back LeSean McCoy, who was his Eagles teammate in 2014 before being traded to the Bills. But it hurts when people you care about leave. However good he is as a player, he's a better person.
