Are the Buffalo Bills Crazy for Trading Sammy Watkins?

Bills Trade Sammy Watkins to Rams, then Trade For Jordan Matthews Former Missouri DB EJ Gaines headed to Buffalo as part of Sammy Watkins trade

Watkins is expected to arrive in Los Angeles on Saturday after catching four passes for 39 yards in the Bills' preseason opener Thursday.

As the news of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension dropped, the Bills traded their No. 1 wide receiver Sammy Watkins and a 2018 sixth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for cornerback E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-rounder. Shortly after that news hit, the team traded for Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick.

"Sammy has proven he can be a productive player and an explosive receiver in this league, we look forward to having him in a Rams uniform", Rams general manager Les Snead said in a news release. The Vanderbilt product was a second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. I think the biggest bump for the current moment is going to be TE Charles Clay, who posted a 57-552-4 line in 2016. Jordan Matthews is a big slot receiver and per PFF was the seventh-ranked wide receiver in target percentage when in the slot with 22.2 percent - right behind Larry Fitzgerald (22.8 percent). He ranks first in receptions (225) and third in receiving yards (2,673) among Eagles in their first three years and is one of only five players in National Football League history with 65-plus receptions and 800-plus receiving yards in each of their first three seasons, joining a club that includes Randy Moss, Odell Beckham Jr., Mike Evans and A.J. Green. If you've paid attention to professional football in your life, you undoubtedly know that Buffalo isn't a kind place to play once the snow begins to fall; deep threats are great only if you can get the ball to them.

Sitting at the bottom of nearly every offensive category had resulted in a 4-12 record and left rookie quarterback Jared Goff battered and bruised. Gaines, while also loading up with a treasure chest of draft picks for next spring. He completed under 55 percent of his pass attempts and threw seven touchdowns to only five touchdowns. They, along with Tyler Higbee, Tavon Austin and Pharoh Cooper, would provide much-needed weaponry for Goff. I see the RVs pulled out here every game. He finished second on the Rams in rushing yards previous year (albeit with only 149 yards on the season) and third in receiving yards with only 509.

Stoke City Premier League - 12 August 2017
Stephen Ireland is "a matter of weeks" away from a return while Ibrahim Afellay is still sidelined, having undergone knee surgery. Only once in Mark Hughes' four seasons as boss have the Potters got three points on the board in August and that was in 2013.

So they added. two former Bills.

Watkins joins back up with teammate Robert Woods, who the Rams signed this offseason.

Even as he missed eight games last season because of a foot injury that ultimately required surgery, Watkins still averaged 15.4 yards per reception, a threshold no Rams receiver reached in 2016.

To me, the big victor here is Gurley. He's got a lot of Favre-esque tendencies to him.
