Can new Bills WR Jordan Matthews effectively replace Sammy Watkins?

The Bills did however, acquire two players who could potentially fill those roles in Jordan Matthews and E.J.

In return, the Eagles got the 50th overall selection in 2015, cornerback Ronald Darby, as well as a third-round draft pick in 2018.

The Philadelphia Eagles have traded wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round 2018 draft pick to the Buffalo Bills. One of those trades sent their receiver Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams.

There's no denying Matthews' production - 225 receptions for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns in three seasons - or work ethic. Of course, even a down year for Matthews was 73 receptions, 804 yards and 3 touchdowns, so he'll likely continue to produce regardless.

The departure of Watkins strips quarterback Tyrod Taylor of his top passing target this season.

He was a second-round pick (No. 42 overall) in the 2014 draft.

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been traded to the L.A. Rams. Buffalo will now have two picks in each of the first three rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft. Watkins, despite a host of injury problems, is a clear upgrade from Matthews, while Darby is the second cornerback to leave Western New York since free agency began in the spring, following Stephon Gilmore's move to the Patriots.

"When you get them and you need a bunch of them, it's something that we felt as well with the quarterback, offensive line, defensive line, you can never have enough of those guys". There were just 26 wide receivers who saw at least a 20 percent share of their teams targets a year ago, and with the company surrounding Matthews, it's hard to say he'd even get that.

In the first game of his pro career, Darby intercepted Indianapolis' Andrew Luck. For the 2016 National Football League season, Buffalo finished with a record of 7-9 overall but seemed to have a roster that may have been on the rise. The Bills will presumably have the opportunity to start fresh, or they will be able to make a serious run at a veteran like Kirk Cousins if they want to make a trade there rather than draft someone.
