Grading the Eagles' Moves: Jordan Matthews Traded to Bills

As a result, it's clear to see that Matthews will be expected to assume No. 1 receiver duties upon his arrival.

Matthews had been rumored as trade bait for weeks.

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.

Roseman said it was a deal that could not have been made a year ago because the receiver group wasn't as strong as he perceives it to be at the moment, especially with the additions of Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. Darby has started 29 games the past two years for the Bills, tallying 121 tackles and two interceptions, which is very similar to the type of production Gaines has given the Rams the past few seasons. With that number nearly certainly rising in 2017, you can expect a bump in pass attempts, which wasn't hard to do to begin with, seeing as the Bills have ranked in the bottom-two for pass attempts in each of the last two years.

Matthews, 25, totaled 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns in three seasons with the Eagles. Roseman talked about his cornerback group now, and how young it is with Sidney Jones 21, Darby, Jalen Mills and Rasul Douglas 23, and C.J. Smith 24. However, Watkins was hobbled over the 2016 season with a foot injury. The VP added that he would not have done the deal if the player they were getting back had only one year left on his contract. There's no insurance on any of these things. His teammates flooded social media in the wake of the trade to wish him the best.

Speculation has mounted during training camp about Jordan Matthews's future and role with the team as Nelson Agholor has been a standout throughout camp.

Buffalo essentially traded Gaines for Darby in these two trades, as well. It never gets any easier in this business because however good he is as a player, he's a better person.

The Buffalo Bills announced two big trades on Friday, both of which involved swapping cornerbacks and receivers with NFC teams.
