Philadelphia Eagles trade Jordan Mathews to Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills invest in future by trading Ronald Darby, Sammy Watkins

The wideout was likely to leave in free agency, prompting the Bills to engineer Friday's two-headed-trade that netted a 2018 second-rounder from Los Angeles and a 2018 third-rounder from Philly to pair with the first-rounder Buffalo received from Kansas City in the April swap that allowed the Chiefs to move up in the draft and grab quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins and cornerback Ronald Darby were sent packing in two separate trades within minutes of each other, and it left the Bills with a collective, wide-eyed look as they convened for a short practice.

"Sammy has proven he can be a productive player and an explosive receiver in this league". "We want to thank E.J. for all he has contributed to our organization since we drafted him in 2014".

The fastest player in training camp for the Eagles is also the fastest-rising skill player on the depth chart. And their last one, Josh Reynolds, is a rookie who is raw.

The Bills declined to pick up Watkin's fifth-year option on his contract back in May, so his future with the organization was already in question.

The Rams' to-do list was daunting on New Year's Day.

"We'll get him going right away, start getting him acclimated to our verbiage and our system, and looking forward to being able to get to know him a little bit better and see how he is able to absorb the material".

Clark also said part of the Senator Ekweremadu Committee Report which zoned the presidency to the North, and the national chairman to the South should be adopted.

Matthews was in exclusive company as a three-year veteran of the Eagles, posting 225 catches and 2,673 yards in his first trio of seasons with the team, but after Phialdelphia's offseason additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, not to mention a summer emergence by former first-round draft pick Nelson Agholor, Matthews was apparently deemed expendable. His numbers suggest he's deserving of something in the range of Kenny Stills (four years, $32 million) or Austin (four years, $42 million).

Buffalo's starting receivers weren't the only two to leave the team.

There is also a knee injury to consider. One ailment after the next has crept up in the months since. Colt Anderson and Shamiel Gary are the only safeties remaining from 2016 and neither is a complete lock to make the team's final roster.

Nelson Agholor enjoyed a strong spring manning the slot in Matthews' absence.

But upon bringing him into the fold, Fisher did the most inexplicable thing.

"I'd love to have some continuity there". This helps us to illustrate the difference between a five-yard completion on 3rd and 4 and that same completion on 3rd and 6.
