New Bills WR Matthews ruled week-to-week

Buffalo sends WR Watkins to Rams in three-team deal

The Bills now own two picks in each of the first three rounds of the 2018 draft. After two huge trades on Friday, the Buffalo Bills' new regime added multiple Day 2 selections to continue their rebuilding project next year.

The Bills lost their first preseason game of the 2017 schedule Thursday night, 17-10, to the Minnesota Vikings at New Era Field.

McDermott has a general manager as a tag-team partner in Brandon Beane, who had been with the Carolina Panthers, another team whose confounding personnel approach raised eyebrows in recent seasons.

Watkins' future in Buffalo was already in question after the Bills in May declined to pick up his fifth-year option. The deal called for $30 million guaranteed, a big portion of which was paid out past year.

This doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement for Matthews, who was actually a teammate of McCoy's in the 2014 season, the 29-year-old's final season in Philadelphia. In typical fashion, the Bills are middling it this season, looking to win in the short term while looking to get better down the road. He became expendable after the Rams acquired Kayvon Webster this off-season, who is pegged to start opposite Trumaine Johnson.

The Bills jolted the National Football League landscape with a pair of trades in a matter of minutes on Friday. Watkins' injury plagued campaign has hurt his stock, and that could be an issue that the team has with him.

"That's when I really seen him at his best", said Robey-Coleman, Watkins" teammate on the Bills these past three years before he signed with Los Angeles in April.

There were reports the Eagles would be open to trading Jordan Matthews as far back as February, so it certainly comes as no surprise the club finally pulled the trigger. If guys like that, two starters including one who was a No. 4 overall draft pick just three years ago, can be dealt, then anybody is in play.

Whether that time is lessened to two games or four games there still lies uncertainty that Elliott could miss valuable time for the Cowboys - and if it's early in the season that's a problem for fantasy owners.
