Sammy Watkins, Buffalo Bills wide receiver, traded to Los Angeles Rams

Sammy Watkins, Buffalo Bills wide receiver, traded to Los Angeles Rams

The two deals see Buffalo add extra second and third-round 2018 draft picks to the additional first-rounder they already held after trading down in this year's draft to allow the Kansas City Chiefs to select Patrick Mahomes.

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.

Brooks, who was in line to be the Eagles' slot corner this season, suffered a hamstring injury in the Eagles' 24-9 loss at Green Bay on Thursday night. Of course, even a down year for Matthews was 73 receptions, 804 yards and 3 touchdowns, so he'll likely continue to produce regardless.

Before we get into Darby and what he brings to the Eagles, let's talk about what the Eagles are losing in Matthews. This is a huge deal for Buffalo, as they swapped Darby and Watkins for Matthews and Gaines and acquired a second-round and a third-round pick for their troubles, without getting much worse on the field.

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. Both Matthews and Gaines are entering the final season of their contracts, so it's possible neither will have an extended future in Buffalo. The Patriots' pick could become a third-round if cornerback Eric Rowe, traded past year, gets at least 50 percent of their defensive snaps.

"There's no insurance on any of these things", Roseman said. "Couldn't ask for a better teammate & friend".

Nelson Agholor now takes over as the Eagles' starting slot receiver. The Eagles upgraded the receiver position enough this offseason by signing Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery, as well as drafting promising rookie Mack Hollins, to feel comfortable making this move. However good he is as a player, he's a better person. "But we've got to do what's in the best interest of this team moving forward and that's why we made the trade".
