  • Bills Trade Sammy Watkins and Get Jordan Matthews From Eagles

Gaines, while also loading up with a treasure chest of draft picks for next spring.

Matthews had been something of a disappointment for the Eagles after coming in a second-round pick at the 2014 NFL Draft.

Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.

The 24-year-old has 17 career touchdown receptions and averages 65 receiving yards a game, 24th-best among active players.

Many Buffalo Bills fans expected to see wide receiver Sammy Watkins have a breakout year in 2017. The move gives young quarterback Jared Goff a new weapon now, and the change may be good for Watkins in the long run.




The question is, was it enough?

The deals come just a day after the Bills had their first preseason game of the year, a loss to the Vikings. Watkins can be that type of dynamic threat when healthy.

Darby started 29 games in his first two seasons in Buffalo. He showed the most promise in 13 games as a second-year pro, hauling in 60 catches for 1,047 yards and 9 TDs.

The Rams were dead last in yards and scoring last season. He was the top-rated wide receiver in the 2014 draft, but that was also a draft filled with several top prospects, including Odell Beckham Jr. who has proven to be the best of the bunch. Watkins is an extremely talented No. 1 receiver who shines on the outside. At the time, it was a move that made sense because the team was essentially telling him to prove he could stay healthy and produce. They have the Rams second-round pick and the Eagles third-round pick in addition to their own choices in those respective rounds.
