Along with a 2018 6th round draft pick, Buffalo traded him to the Los Angeles Rams in order to acquire CB E. J. Gaines and a 2nd round 2018 draft pick. Wow.

The Bills were looking at competing for second place in the AFC East at best before making some big trades on Friday, but after the deals they made, it's hard to imagine them winning more than five or six games this season.

Here is a sampling of some of the funnier tweets about the trade. They acquired a second-round pick from L.A. and a third-rounder from the Eagles, while also sending a sixth-round pick to the Rams.

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. So, they essentially swapped Watkins, Darby, and a 6th-rounder for Gaines, Matthews, a 2nd-round pick, and a 3rd-rounder. This is not a throw-in-the-towel thing at all.

Check back with Spectrum News as we will update this story throughout the day.

Trades are pretty rare in the National Football League but nonetheless, Buffalo made a decision to shake up its roster early in training camp this season.

Watkins' future in Buffalo was already in question after the Bills declined to pick up his fifth-year contract option in May.

But lower payout may force the central government to borrow more from the market, widening the fiscal deficit for FY18. Chidambaram further asked RBI if it will reveal breakdown of the Rs 50,000 crore loss/expenditure.

Among 41 wide receivers with 100 or more targets last season, Matthews was 38th in Reception NEP, despite being 26th in targets and tied for 23rd in receptions.

Watkins has been dealing with a foot injury that limited the wide receiver to just eight games previous year after having an operation to fix a broken foot.

Darby started 29 games in his first two seasons in Buffalo.

Cleveland isn't the only AFC team with a ton of premium picks in the 2018 draft.

He presented both trades to McDermott and owner Terry Pegula on Thursday night, following Buffalo's preseason-opening 17-10 loss to Minnesota. In three seasons with the Eagles Matthews compiled 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns. This does not change the fact that I am still excited to see what Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy will bring to the table this season.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins and cornerback Ronald Darby were sent packing in two separate trades within minutes of each other, and it left the Bills with a collective, wide-eyed look as they convened for a short practice. And, in all honesty, it's starting to look like doomsday for WR Tavon Austin, who was once looked at as the cornerstone of the Rams offense.
