Eagles Trade Jordan Matthews and Pick for Bills' Ronald Darby

Howie Roseman Eagles Didn't Want to Move Jordan Matthews But'unique Opportunity Arose Bills deal Sammy Watkins, acquire Jordan Matthews in separate deals

Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick have been traded from the Eagles to the Bills in exchange for cornerback Ronald Darby, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. This was probably window dressing to lessen the fallout over trading a popular player, but maybe Roseman does have a distant scenario in mind in which nobody is willing to pay Matthews what the receiver thinks he is worth. Nelson Agholor, the Eagles' first-round draft pick in 2015, has been a standout during training camp after two disappointing seasons. "It wasn't that he wasn't in the long term plans for us.we were not shopping Jordan Matthews", said Roseman. On the flip side, Philadelphia has been looking to upgrade their secondary and Darby is expected to start for them.

"This is a passing-driven league", Roseman said. Matthews was nursing a sore knee while Agholor stepped in and showed promise for a breakout year. The Philadelphia Eagles made headlines today by trading Jordan Matthews and a third round pick to the Buffalo Bills for cornerback Ronald Darby.

"You look around the league, and it is a corner-deficient league", Roseman said Friday a short time after the deal went down. We had the opportunity to watch you develop as a player and as a person, and that is something we will never forget. That's not going to get it done as a WR2/WR3 as Matthews has been in two of his three seasons.

Mr Tillerson said that with his "fire and fury" warning, the president was trying to use the kind of language that would resonate with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

That was reflected in the reaction of some of the players on Twitter when the trade was announced. And our promise to you is that we will always strive to provide indispensable journalism to our community. The team will miss Matthews for sure, but the cupboard is in no means bare.

In Buffalo, Jordan will be reunited with running back LeSean McCoy, who was his Eagles teammate in 2014 before being traded to the Bills. Darby has two years remaining on his contract. The move allows the Eagles to take their time developing the recently drafted corners.

"It hurts when people you care about leave", Roseman said. But he's way better than anything the Eagles had on the roster, and they are unquestionably a better overall team with Darby and without Matthews than vice versa.
