Team Trades Sammy Watkins To Rams, Gets Jordan Matthews From Eagles

Sammy Watkins traded to NFC team
First came the report that wide receiver Sammy Watkins - arguably their best skill player - was traded.
Asked Friday if the Bills are better off for the upcoming season after making the moves, Beane said, "you can make an argument either way".
It's not that the Rams got a freebie. The Bills paid a hefty price to draft him in 2014, switching places with the Browns (No. 9 to No. 4) while also giving the Browns their 2015 first-round pick to ensure they could pick Watkins.
Sammy Watkins is now a member of the L.A Rams.
Watkins' departure strips quarterback Tyrod Taylor of his top passing target this season.
There's no question the Rams needed an infusion of talent at wideout, but there's plenty of risk that comes with trading for Watkins.
When healthy, Watkins is one of the premier deep threats in the NFL. By Friday afternoon, it was becoming even clearer how the quarterback thing would play out. This new situation, with no Sammy Watkins, is ripe for Jones to seize an opportunity. You put one step in front of the other and you move on.
It will be a few days. Practice is open to anyone who would like to try out for the team.
Though he wasn't shopping either player, Beane said he first began receiving inquiries about Watkins in June.
Watkins, age 24 and listed at 6-foot-1, 211 pounds, nearly certainly will line up on the outside and be the Rams' primary deep threat. In 37 career games in Buffalo, Watkins had 153 catches and 17 touchdowns, although he missed 11 matches over the last two seasons. He played all 16 games as a rookie and totaled 982 yards and six touchdowns. Last night, Watkins caught the first three passes thrown his way in what we now know was his last game as a Bill. Now it looks like that roster will be built in a new direction in the coming seasons. "That's not his burden to bear", McDermott said then. "But because of the age, you'd like for it to be about the future as well". And, in all honesty, it's starting to look like doomsday for WR Tavon Austin, who was once looked at as the cornerstone of the Rams offense. The Rams also received a 6th-round pick in the deal.
"Since the day we drafted him, Jordan has been an unbelievable teammate, hard worker and obviously incredibly productive", Eagles Vice President of Football Operations Howie Roseman said in a news conference streamed on the team's website.
As a Bills fan, I'm glad to see that Watkins appreciated his time in Buffalo and I am sorry that he had to go. They did add former Bill Nickell Robey-Coleman to play the nickel, but on the outside the depth is weak. I think more importantly it takes some relief off of Todd Gurley, who has been controversial in fantasy circles this offseason.
