Los Angeles acquires Sammy Watkins in a trade from Bills

Bills deal Sammy Watkins, acquire Jordan Matthews in separate deals

Howie Roseman Eagles Didn't Want to Move Jordan Matthews But'unique Opportunity Arose

Two other offensive players, however, won't be playing in that game.

For one, Watkins will be a free agent after this season. They signed a solid intermediary receiver in Robert Woods, as well.

Add in rookies Cooper Kupp and Gerald Everett, an athletic tight end drafted in the second round, and that should be enough of an improved supporting cast to judge what kind of strides Goff has made. While Matthews departure may be viewed by some as a reason to bump Alshon Jeffery's target total up, the Eagles face a murderer's row of No. 1 cornerbacks this season, including Patrick Peterson, Josh Norman (twice) and Richard Sherman.

Bringing in Watkins also gives Goff another experienced receiver to go with Woods and Tavon Austin, who has been limited in training camp with a hamstring injury. When I go out there and play ping pong, whatever I'm doing, I'm not throwing in the towel.

The Bills shook up their roster with two blockbuster trades Friday, dealing starting receiver Sammy Watkins to the Rams and acquiring receiver Jordan Matthews from Philadelphia in exchange for cornerback Ronald Darby.

While the National Football League was reeling in the shock of Ezekiel Elliott being traded, the Buffalo Bills completed two trades that were completely unexpected.

Thus far in his career, Watkins accumulated 153 receptions for 2,459 receiving yards, and 17 touchdowns while in Buffalo.

McCoy, who was traded from the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015 for linebacker Kiko Alonso, said he can relate to Watkins in that he was dealt for "a guy he's probably better than" in wide receiver Jordan Matthews.

Some huge changes at 1 Bills Drive after Thursday's night's preseason opener.

Watkins endured non-stop nagging injuries, and he wound up missing 11 of the possible 48 games he could have played, but also was well less than 100 percent in many others.

The move continues LA's effort to put 2016 former one overall pick Jared Goff in the best position to succeed possible.

The biggest victor, of course, is Goff. The combination of losing Watkins and a new scheme may be too much to overcome for Taylor to be an every-week starter in 2017. He now has a talented pass catcher to throw to in Watkins who can pull it down and separate easily from defensive backs when he is at 100%.

The Rams' to-do list was daunting on New Year's Day. They're competitors and genuinely believe they can make a playoff run this season while methodically building for the future.
