Eagles trade Matthews to Bills for CB

Watkins will now be playing for the Rams

Sammy Watkins' yards per reception rate over the last 3 seasons is the 4th-best in the National Football League (min. 100 catches over that stretch).

Ultimately, the Eagles glaring need for help at cornerback was too much to overlook.

Gaines was a valuable defensive back in the Rams' rotation.

Watkins was traded to the Los Angeles Rams, while Darby was sent to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Matthews was selected in the second round of the 2014 draft out of Vanderbilt.

Agholor, who played in the slot his a year ago at Southern Cal and had 104 catches for 1,313 yards and 12 touchdowns, got a lot of reps in the slot this spring when Matthews was sidelined with tendinitis in his knee, and he played well.

The Rams drafted Gaines in the sixth round in 2014 and he immediately made an impact. You're either happy or disappointed in the way you performed, didn't win the game and then you lose somebody in the locker room like Jordan Matthews and then you get a two-hour, 40-minute practice in full pads, live.

Imagine the upcoming free-agent market.

"He's produced in this league for three years, " Ertz said. He can do intermediate routes. And he can go up and get the ball. "He's, like, just Sammy Watkins". Y'all are going to see it with your own eyes. "It wasn't easy seeing him, but we are excited about seeing him in Buffalo, and we know he will do some great things up there, but it's time to move on".

It will be a few days.

Off the field, the Eagles are a very well coached team. Rowe had just 26 tackles, one interception and seven passes defended in nine games with the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in the 2016 season after being traded by the Eagles during the preseason previous year. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder had 225 receptions for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns. He has averaged 16.1 yards per catch in his three-year career, with 17 touchdowns in 37 games.

"Jordan Matthews since the day we drafted him, unbelievable teammate", Roseman said.

Watkins' problem has been staying on the field. He started 15 games in his rookie season and was named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team. In 2015, he had 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns but missed three games, and past year he missed half the season with a foot injury and had 430 yards and two touchdowns.

The Buffalo Bills, although coming off of a preseason loss, looked as though they were in for a decent 2017 season. Matthews is also entering the final season of his contract.

It was the kind of trade the Rams desperately needed to make, the type that gives their offense a real chance to finally emerge as a legitimate unit. "Because of the age, you'd want it to be for the future as well". The Eagles move the pieces around to create favorable matchups, so the slot is not a foreign concept to any of the receivers, and for that matter the tight ends and the running backs. Watkins' injury plagued campaign has hurt his stock, and that could be an issue that the team has with him. "We lost a brother.he's a brother for life to me".

"We weren't picking up the phone and calling teams on Jordan because of his value to our team", Roseman told reporters in Philadelphia. "I think that allows us to have our 1-on-1 matchups and it allows us to do all the work and let Sammy run free".
