Bills Trade Sammy Watkins to Rams, Acquire Jordan Matthews From Eagles

Blockbusters: Bills trade Sammy Watkins, Ronald Darby

(The trade) was a unique opportunity to have a bunch of young corners at that position. "We were not out there shopping Jordan Matthews".

"When you get them and you need a bunch of them, it's something that we felt as well with the quarterback, offensive line, defensive line, you can never have enough of those guys".

The Eagles gave up a receiver who had been historically productive in his first three years in the NFL. His 225 receptions rank first in Eagles' history and his 2,673 receiving yards rank third among Eagles' receivers in their first three seasons.

Despite what some might consider inflated numbers, Matthews' production is unquestionable. He played just six snaps with the offense.

Matthews was taken in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft and the Eagles moved up 12 spots in that draft to get him.

The team didn't have any major conversations with Matthews on an extension, which was a major indication that they were preparing to move on if the right deal came along. Previous year at this time, from where the group was, it would have been hard to do. "It is hard to find those guys". Darby is just 23 years old and has two years left on his rookie deal.

As for what the Eagles are getting in Darby, Roseman said: "He has rare speed". And he didn't rule out a possible reunion with Matthews, however unrealistic that might be. The Patriots' pick could become a third-round if cornerback Eric Rowe, traded past year, gets at least 50 percent of their defensive snaps.

During his three years in Philadelphia, Matthews became a clear favorite within the Eagles' locker room. After the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith, and with Mack Hollins and Marcus Johnson also having strong training camps, the Eagles could afford to part with somebody.

But Matthews' departure will still leave a void. J-Matt was the best teammate and friend you could ask for.

By trading Matthews, 25, the Eagles lost one of their locker room leaders, however. "Love you bro. I'll definitely miss doing this with you!" However good he is as a player, he's a better person.

The Buffalo Bills announced two big trades on Friday, both of which involved swapping cornerbacks and receivers with NFC teams.
