Team Trades Sammy Watkins To Rams, Gets Jordan Matthews From Eagles

Posted August 12, 2017

Buffalo also continued stockpiling 2018 draft picks by acquiring a second-round selection from Los Angeles and a third-rounder from the Eagles.

Eagles' slot receiver Jordan Matthews has been traded to the Buffalo Bills for cornerback Ronald Darby.

With two trades on Friday, the Bills altered the depth charts of three teams and caused all sorts of movement in our fantasy football wide receiver rankings.

The trade gives Buffalo two first and second round draft picks in 2018, ammunition for a front office that has been non-committal on starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder had 225 receptions for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Darby, a native of Oxon Hill, MD, played three seasons for the Seminoles, appearing in 42 career games and totaling 79 tackles (57 solo), 16 pass breakups, 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery. He has pulled in at least 67 catches in each season he has been with the Eagles, and has missed only two games in three seasons. "Watkins" time in Buffalo, however, was hampered by injuries, particularly in 2016.

Darby was a five-star recruit out of Potomac High School in Oxon Hill, Maryland, considered the best player in the state of Maryland and by some services as the top cornerback prospect.

The Bills' decision to trade their top receiver and top cornerback for future draft picks signals that first-year general manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott view the Bills as a long-term rebuilding project.

Buffalo's overall approach with these trades, and specifically the loss of Watkins, can not sit well with starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor. "It goes to the player that we got, the position that we're acquiring and how hard it is to find those guys".

"I think when the media starts putting it out, and we do the same thing, when media starts putting out they think guys are available, whether that's true or not, that starts getting you phone calls and that's how it started here".

Granted, the Eagles got a solid corner in Darby.
