Grading the Eagles' moves: Jordan Matthews traded to Bills

In a flurry of moves on Friday, the Buffalo Bills have made significant changes in their roster as the season approaches. Even more recently, the club acquired wide receiver Jordan Matthews from the Philadelphia Eagles and cornerback E.J.

Hue Jackson and company will not only have multiple first-rounders again in 2018, they now own three picks in the second round of next year's draft.

"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.

Last season, because of a foot injury, Watkins was limited to eight games. Pagula fired head coach Rex Ryan in the last week of the 2016 season and waited until the day after this year's draft to send Whaley packing.

That will give them at a minimum six selections in the top 100 of the draft, plus if they get any compensatory selection for the loss of Stephon Gillmore, and potentially four of those picks could be top 40 selections.

Los Angeles also brought in possession receiver Robert Woods, another former Bill who was stunted in Buffalo's run-first offense because Tyrod Taylor helps his receivers as much as Fox News helps Democratic politicians.

Trading away Darby is an interesting decision since the Bills lack depth in the secondary. Matthews, a second-round pick in 2014, was second on the Eagles with 73 receptions last season. Unlike Matthews, who should be able to earn a starting job, Gaines will be joining an open competition to replace Darby. The former fourth overall pick is entering the final year of his rookie deal but Snead hopes he can stay in L.A. long-term. In his sophomore season, he hauled in 60 passes for nine touchdowns and 1,047 yards, averaging 17.5 yards per catch.

By Sports Info Solutions charting from Football Outsiders, the two weren't drastically different by yards allowed per pass.

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.
