Sammy Watkins Traded To Rams; Bills Acquire Jordan Matthews In Separate Trade

Eagles trade WR Jordan Matthews to Bills for CB Ronald Darby

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

The Bills were looking at competing for second place in the AFC East at best before making some big trades on Friday, but after the deals they made, it's hard to imagine them winning more than five or six games this season.

The trade comes just minutes after the Bills traded wide receiver Sammy Watkins to the Rams for former Missouri defense back E.J. Gaines.

A lack of reliable players at cornerback and a surplus of wide receivers prompted the Eagles to trade Matthews and a 2018 third-round draft pick to the Bills in exchange for cornerback Ronald Darby.

Broncos rookies deliver victory over Bears with pair of big plays
SPOKE TOO SOON?: The Broncos didn't wait for the preseason to arrive before announcing McKenzie had won the punt return job. Trubisky was only a starter for one year during his time in college and chose to enter the draft despite his junior status.

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

The Bills are instantly weaker at both receiver and corner.

The underlying story in all of these offseason moves for the Bills is that their secondary is going to be pretty brutal after losing Stephon Gilmore via free agency, and now Darby in this deal.

Apart from improving the camera performance, LG has managed to make the camera module 30% slimmer than the V20's . That breakthrough comes via its f/1.6 aperture , the largest we have seen thus far if memory serves me correctly.

Still, Buffalo looks as if it has a real plan for the future after Friday's trades.

The Bills now have a pair of first, second and third-round picks in the 2018 draft. That's a lot of draft capital in short order.

He will hope to revive his career in LA with the Rams, who needed to improve the supporting cast around under-pressure second-year quarterback Jared Goff. He played in just half of the games of the season, racking up just 28 receptions for 430 yards and two touchdowns scored. 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. New offensive coordinator Rick Dennison oversaw a passing attack in Denver that threw six more times per game than the Bills past year, and given that all three of Buffalo's projected top receivers are new, it's nearly impossible to guess who QB Tyrod Taylor will click with and how he'll perform.

The addition of Watkins to the Rams means his old teammate, Robert Woods, figures to see fewer targets than expected, which all but takes him off the fantasy radar. But after 17 years without a playoff appearance, what's another season or two?
