Bills Deal Watkins; Get Jordan Matthews, Draft Picks

Bills Deal Watkins; Get Jordan Matthews, Draft Picks

Darby, 23, is expected to immediately start for the Eagles, leaving Jalen Mills, Patrick Robinson, rookie Rasul Douglas and Ron Brooks to compete for two other spots. He followed that up by allowing no touchdowns for the 2013 BCS National Champions. A three-time Atlantic Coast Conference champion, Darby was named the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year as a freshman in 2012 and helped the Seminoles win the BCS National Championship in 2013. Nelson Agholor, the Eagles' first-round draft pick in 2015, has been a standout during training camp after two disappointing seasons.

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. You see him go against the players that we go against in our division - the Bills in 2015 played the NFC East, so you have that look. Matthews had been Philadelphia's most productive receiver, averaging 75 catches, 891 receiving yards and six touchdowns in his first three seasons. You'll always be my boy both on & off the field.

Opinions on the deal will be understandably split, but the Eagles traded for a position of need and gave up a third-rounder and what they feel is a surplus player they won't be signing longterm.




Besides, if the Eagles are developing offensively around free agents Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery, there should be less emphasis on the role of the slot receiver. The Patriots' pick could become a third-round if cornerback Eric Rowe, traded a year ago, gets at least 50 percent of their defensive snaps. His teammates flooded social media in the wake of the trade to wish him the best.

The control over a young player was important to Roseman in the trade. "This isn't one where you're celebrating and doing a dance, because you're giving up a good player and a good pick, but in this league you're not going to be able to get anything unless you give something".

The Sammy Watkins trade wasn't all the Buffalo Bills had in store for their roster, though.
