Blockbusters: Bills trade Sammy Watkins, Ronald Darby

Buffalo Bills

In his three seasons with the Eagles, Matthews caught 225 passes for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns. The Birds will hope to get that kind of production now from Nelson Agholor, who will likely take over Matthews' role in the slot.

The Bills acquired cornerback E.J. Gaines from the Rams for Watkins, giving them enough depth at cornerback to part with Darby.

Buffalo also continued stockpiling 2018 draft picks by getting a second-round selection from Los Angeles and a third-rounder from the Eagles. Lynn started as the Bills receivers coach before being promoted to offensive coordinator previous year and finished the season as the team's interim coach after Rex Ryan was sacked a week before the final game.

The Philadelphia Eagles traded former Madison Academy standout Jordan Matthews to the Buffalo Bills on Friday. Buffalo seems to be stockpiling picks for next year's draft. They also picked up a third-round draft pick for Darby. He was a second-round pick (50th overall) in the 2015 draft. An immediate starter as a rookie in 2015, Darby tallied 2 picks and 21 passes defensed en route to earning a spot on the Pro Football Writers Association All-Rookie Team and being named the Pro Football Focus defensive rookie of the year. He has started 25 games for the Rams but missed the entire 2015 season. "Darby is just 23 years old and has two years left on his rookie deal".

So which team did the best?
