"But we've got to do what's in the best interest of this team moving forward and that's why we made the trade".

Need something to feel energized enough so you can get out of bed this morning?

The Bills made two blockbuster moves Friday. He was a second-round pick (50th overall) in the 2015 draft.

This is a head-scratcher folks.

First, let's look at who was traded for Watkins. There was even hope the Tyrod-to-Sammy partnership could even last.

Buffalo picked East Carolina wide receiver Zay Jones in the second round of the NFL Draft in April and added wide receivers Anquan Boldin, Rod Streater, Corey Brown and Andre Holmes in free agency.

One person who falls into the latter category is running back LeSean McCoy.

Both Beane and McDermott are intense competitors.

Then this happened, a move that surely indicates that Buffalo is looking toward the future. He now has a talented pass catcher to throw to in Watkins who can pull it down and separate easily from defensive backs when he is at 100%.

As for Watkins himself, his outlook doesn't change as much as you would think.

Whether or not he's worth a gamble in the first round is up to team owners, but the best advice is to take a calculated risk on him if he's still around in the second or third round. Are the Bills in full-on tank mode?

Watkins is one of the most explosive wide receivers in the National Football League when healthy but he's struggled to stay on the field in recent years and he hasn't been consistent. In 2015, the Eagles traded him to the Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso and it took a year for McCoy to fully grasp what happened, and to get comfortable in his new surroundings. We felt like as we were building this, there were a lot of priorities in building a team that consistently competes for championships. While Watkins has not yet been seen in Rams gear, the team's video department didn't have an issue with simulating a Jared Goff-to-Watkins touchdown pass. Watkins has proven he can't stay healthy, and to a certain extent, Gaines has shown that too.

Trying the defend the timing of the Darby trade is a little more hard. Trading away E.J. Gaines is no issue. Production-wise, it's a almost equal trade, so at least the Bills probably aren't getting worse at cornerback.

STEELERS 20, GIANTS 12: In East Rutherford, New Jersey, rookie quarterback Josh Dobbs threw a 28-yard touchdown pass and Chris Boswell kicked a 37-yard field goal in the third quarter to give Pittsburgh the lead for good in an exhibition win over NY. Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco will soon return to practice, but he won't play in a game before the Ravens open the regular season September 10 at Cincinnati.
