Bills Acquire Jordan Matthews From Eagles For EJ Gaines

Bills Acquire Jordan Matthews From Eagles For EJ Gaines

But Matthews was entering the final year of his four-year rookie contract and instead of trying to gamble on re-signing him next season, the Eagles made a decision to get something back for him - although in the process, they also had to part ways with a third-rounder.

Matthews became expendable because of the depth the Eagles have at wide receiver. People ask about different players all the time; you never know what's serious or just bait.

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

But Hollins (6-4, 221) also is big, and he looks pretty sturdy. "That said, we're going to compete like insane".

Declining the fifth-year option on Watkins' rookie deal in the spring was the writing on the wall from McDermott and Buffalo's rebuilt front office that he wasn't part of the plan beyond this season. As a result, it's clear to see that Matthews will be expected to assume No. 1 receiver duties upon his arrival.

"Last year at this time, from where the group was", Roseman said, "it would have been hard to do".

Matthews sat out most of the spring work with knee tendinitis that the organization didn't seem to think was all that serious.

Nelson Agholor is the primary slot receiver. This would definitely have limited Matthews' snaps.

If the Rams had stability at the cornerback position, this would probably be okay.

"It's a corner-deficient league". Despite an apparent rebuilding mode in Buffalo, Matthews should have a chance to make an immediate impact. During his rookie campaign, Matthews had 67 catches for 872 yards and eight touchdowns.

"It's tough to lose a guy like Sammy", Taylor said.

On Friday morning, the Rams worked out a trade with the Buffalo Bills to make Sammy Watkins their new vertical threat on the outside, a role Austin previously was supposed to fill.

In the middle of all of that, they traded down in the 2017 draft with Kansas City, a move that gets them two first round picks next year.

I love it. I love that the Rams are movers and shakers in the trade market and look for opportunities to add stars to the team. For us, we have a bunch of free agents we haven't signed at this point that are free agents after the year. Since the Eagles drafted him in the second round of the 2014 draft out of Vanderbilt, Matthews has piled up 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns. The response, in a word, is heartening. "We're encouraged by the progress". Some of you have even followed through with subscriptions, which is especially gratifying.

We're thankful for your support in every way.
