Buffalo Bills reshape team in two surprising trades with Rams and Eagles

Sammy Watkins News, Stats, Photos | Buffalo Bills - SB Nation

This potentially changed when the team traded dynamic wide receiver Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams before shipping starting cornerback Ronald Darby off to the Philadelphia Eagles in the afternoon. Secondly, Sean McVay is the new head coach and didn't have a weapon like Watkins on the Redskins last season. His best season came in 2015 when he made 60 catches for 1,047 yards with nine touchdowns. That didn't stop him from public declarations that he was ready to cash in on a massive contract.

The Rams had hoped that the 5-foot-8 Austin would show more progress, but he spent the offseason recovering from wrist surgery and had been held out of training camp because of a hamstring injury. Matthews is more of a steady possession receiver. He has at least 103 targets in each of his first three seasons in the league. The Bills traded up to select Watkins fourth overall, then watched him catch 65 passes for 982 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie.

"I don't even know if you can play in two games in one week, but he did a nice job last night", McVay said.

Jared Goff doesn't have to be a star this year, but he does have to look like a competent starter.

Once you read deeper into it, it starts to make more and more sense.

In fact, Affleck said he thinks that things are finally starting to work and DC is getting things right as they move forward. Incredible but true, the Justice League will be released finally on our screens in a few months, on November 15, precisely.

Darby lands in the super-aggressive, blitz-heavy scheme of Jim Schwartz in Philadelphia and that sparks optimism for his future value, but regular assignments against division rivals Dez Bryant (Cowboys) and Beckham (Giants) are poison pills. Gaines, while also loading up with a treasure chest of draft picks for next spring.

How the Eagles align against three- and four-receiver sets will be fascinating, a variable that plays into Schwartz's blitz-happy ways with safety Malcolm Jenkins the ultimate wildcard. Beane was previously an executive with the Carolina Panthers.

Everything about their moves up to this point signals the Bills are planning for a big 2018 draft. McDermott's first draft class - general manager Doug Whaley was gone shortly thereafter - looks promising. They could either use those picks to build a quality roster or package a few of them to move up.

Quarterback is the pressing question for the Bills. Luckily as Matthews will develop likely as Buffalo's WR1 before the season's end, the Bills signed veteran free agent Anquan Boldin who will likely soak up most of the early season targets and well as redzone opportunities that he saw previously in Detroit. He is entering the final year of his deal. What do we expect from the Buffalo Bills in 2017?
