Philadelphia Eagles: CB Ronald Darby now a member of the Birds

Philadelphia Eagles: CB Ronald Darby now a member of the Birds

The Bills are sending former first-round pick WR Sammy Watkins along with a 2018 sixth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for CB E.J. As a result, it's clear to see that Matthews will be expected to assume No. 1 receiver duties upon his arrival.

It's rare that good corners become available on the trade market, but Buffalo is rebuilding behind a new head coach-general manager combo, so Darby, a former second-round pick, is that rare good corner who became available. Matthews and Wentz were close friends and it was Matthews who caught Wentz's first career touchdown pass in last season's opener.

Roseman said it was a deal that could not have been made previous year because the receiver group wasn't as strong as he perceives it to be at the moment, especially with the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith.

There's no denying Matthews' production - 225 receptions for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns in three seasons - or work ethic. Darby has started all 29 games of his National Football League career.

The control over a young player was important to Roseman in the trade. And keep in mind that would be a 30-50 pass increase over last season. The Eagles have several different options for the slot, starting with Nelson Agholor, who'll get the first chance to prove that his impressive training camp signifies an awakening after two dismal seasons. You'll always be my boy both on & off the field. 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.

With these two deals, the Buffalo Bills have now traded two of their top players at their respective positions, which might signal a rebuild is in progress. But like so many other players that were members of the Buffalo Bills in recent years, the new regime chose to make them available. "But we have to do what's best in moving forward".
