Eagles trade Jordan Matthews to Bills for Ronald Darby

Trae Waynes and Edmond Robinson tackle Buffalo Bills' Sammy Watkins on a punt return during the first half of a preseason NFL football game Thursday Aug. 10 2017 in Orchard Park N.Y. (AP

"Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick". And not long after the Matthews deal was announced, Schefter had some more news to share about head coach Sean McDermott's team.

The former Clemson standout has 153 catches for 2,459 yards and 17 touchdowns in three National Football League seasons despite undergoing multiple foot surgeries. Of course, Agholor will have to avoid a repeat of last year's disastrous performance to help replace Matthews' production alongside free-agent signees Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith.

Darby, the Bills' second-round draft pick in 2015, appeared in 29 games for Buffalo over the last two seasons.

Darby, a native of Oxon Hill, MD, played three seasons for the Seminoles, appearing in 42 career games and totaling 79 tackles (57 solo), 16 pass breakups, 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery. Over his career, he's had 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns. Yes, Matthews has stayed on the field for all but two games in his career, while Watkins has missed 13 games in three seasons, but that is part of the appeal. "It's hard to pull the trigger on a trade like that when you're giving up that kind of player and person".

He joins a secondary that lacks top-notch cornerbacks. However, Watkins was hobbled over the 2016 season with a foot injury. Darby is the fourth player from the Bills to join the Eagles' defense in the last two seasons. Darby has two years left on his rookie contract, which gives the Birds time to see how he fits in with the team and the development of the other young corners on the roster.

"It hurts when people you care about leave", Roseman said. It never gets any easier in this business because however good he is as a player, he's a better person.

The Buffalo Bills made a pair of moves Friday in an attempt to turn the page from the prior administration and build for their future. "But we have to do what's best in moving forward".
