Buf­falo Bills trade Watkins to Rams, get Matthews from Ea­gles

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

OR­CHARD PARK, N.Y. - The Buf­falo Bills have shaken up their ros­ter with two sep­a­rate trades, deal­ing start­ing re­ceiver Sammy Watkins to the Los An­ge­les Rams and ac­quir­ing Jor­dan Matthews from Philadel­phia.

Both are block­buster trades in which Buf­falo also shuf­fled its cor­ner­backs. The Bills dealt Ron­ald Darby to the Ea­gles and ac­quired E.J. Gaines in the trade with the Rams.

Buf­falo also con­tin­ued stock­pil­ing 2018 draft picks by ac­quir­ing a sec­ond-round se­lec­tion from Los An­ge­les and a third-rounder from the Ea­gles.

The Bills dealt a sixth-round pick to the Rams as part of the Watkins trade.

The moves were an­nounced early Fri­day af­ter­noon.
