Sammy Watkins trade means 3 big things

Sammy Watkins trade means 3 big things

In the other trade, the Bills are acquiring WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for CB Ronald Darby.

The Bills shook up their roster with two separate blockbuster trades Friday.

The Bills mysteriously traded Sammy Watkins to the Rams on Friday. The Birds also forked over a third-round draft pick in 2018. McVay also praised Troy Hill, but Hill will serve a two-game suspension at the start of the season. You're either happy or disappointed in the way you performed, didn't win the game and then you lose somebody in the locker room like Jordan Matthews and then you get a two-hour, 40-minute practice in full pads, live. "But we felt like this was the right decision for us".

Just don't call it a rebuilding plan, Beane said.

"That's coach's decision as far as who's going to step up, but Nelson's done some great things", said Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

"It was tough, but at the end of the day, we know what we are getting into when we play this game", Ertz said after practice on Saturday. But McDermott says without the players, Matthews and Gaines, the deals wouldn't happen.

Eagles players expressed optimism about what Darby can bring to the team and, to a man, said they understood the business side of it. "We have to put a positive lining". "I think his vertical presence and even just his threat and his name, I think will allow defenses to play us different, because you always have to have someone over the top of him". Snead also said the Rams will pursue a new contract with Watkins, who is set to become a free agent after this season. Darby, a man-coverage specialist, is coming off a down sophomore campaign, after his 21 passes defensed as a second-round rookie in 2015 ranked fifth in the NFL.

Agholor played slot his junior season at USC, when he racked up 104 receptions for 1,313 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Watkins has been hampered by an assortment of injuries and limited to playing just eight games last season after having surgery for a broken left foot. After three years, Robinson was gone, sent to the Detroit Lions for a sixth-round pick, and the Rams' desire for a legitimate No. 1 receiver persisted, leaving them to wonder what could have been.

He'll be a nice complement to veteran WR Anquan Boldin who was just acquired four days ago. He's averaged 75 catches in his first three seasons in the league with an average of six touchdowns per season.

"You look around the league and it is a cornerback deficient league", Roseman said.

Once you get past the depth of Hollins and Agholor, the Eagles didn't have much to show.

"I'm still trying to dissect what's real and what's true as I move forward".

Minnesota Vikings' Trae Waynes (26) and Edmond Robinson (51) tackle Buffalo Bills' Sammy Watkins (14) on a punt return during the first half of a preseason NFL football game Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017, in Orchard Park, N.Y.

Losing Gaines hurts the Rams. But newcomer Kayvon Webster, who is very familiar with Wade Phillips' system from his time in Denver, already had locked down the starting job opposite Trumaine Johnson.

Matthews was one of Ertz's closest friends on the team.
