Bills beat the Jets 22 to 17.
Watkins is in the final year of his pact after the Bills failed to pick up his option, but look for the Rams to extend - or ultimately tag - a player they considered drafting back in 2014. "This was absolutely a we decision". "Just surprised it happened so fast". They brought back Tyrod Taylor, signed Anquan Boldin, and didn't trade away aging talent like LeSean McCoy or Charles Clay. Mathews' production and the fact that he's only 26 during the 2018 season might make him the most attractive of the bunch considering Watkins' durability issues.
"(Darby) has speed, he's versatile, he's a playmaker, he's smart and he's got great instincts and ball skills", said Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham, who was Darby's teammate in Buffalo in 2015. "You get traded. It's a business and he has to understand that".
"I'm always going to listen", McDermott said of the trade proposal. And it's our job to develop the players. "This is my first time experiencing this with someone who is one of my best friends".
Well, we finally have our answer about what the Eagles intend to do with Jordan Matthews. It was his first game in New England since suspending quarterback Tom Brady in the scandal that came to be known as "Deflategate".
Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead believes Tavon Austin "definitely has a place" on his team, even though it feels like the offense already has moved on without him.
What do you think about the Bills moves?
Altogether, the trade nets the Bills second-round and third-round picks in 2018, but leaves the roster in a lesser state for the 2017 season.
So, Watkins is the No. 1 wideout at the moment, Robert Woods, who played with Watkins in Buffalo the last few years, is the No. 2 receiver, and Cooper Kupp will be in the slot. The Bills paid a hefty price to draft him in 2014, switching places with the Browns (No. 9 to No. 4) while also giving the Browns their 2015 first-round pick to ensure they could pick Watkins.
Despite the risks involved - Jeffery and Smith came with questions, Agholor has been a mistake-ridden disappointment through two National Football League seasons, Hollins is a rookie with one preseason game behind him - it's clear that the Eagles felt they had to add a solid starting-quality corner to be competitive in the NFC East this season. The Bills were already expected to shift more of a high-percentage passing game this season, which wouldn't have suited Watkins, who averages a lid-lifting 16.1 yards per reception in his career.
The key for Philadelphia was adding a starting-caliber cornerback in Darby to a defense that plays in the pass-happy NFC East.
