Well the Eagles have a made a move to get cornerback

The Bills sent former second-round pick Ronald Darby to Philadelphia in the deal, which also saw the Bills get a 2018 third-round pick.

So, the Bills swapped CB Ronald Darby, WR Sammy Watkins and a 2018 6th-round pick for WR Jordan Matthews, the Eagles' 2018 3rd-round pick, CB EJ Gaines and the Rams' 2018 2nd-round pick.

With two trades on Friday, the Bills altered the depth charts of three teams and caused all sorts of movement in our fantasy football wide receiver rankings.

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been traded to the L.A. Rams. Since the Eagles drafted him in the second round of the 2014 draft out of Vanderbilt, Matthews has piled up 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns. Darby started 29 games for the Bills and registered 137 tackles, 2 interceptions and 33 passes defensed.

Watkins was already a hard player to evaluate after a disappointing, injury-plagued 2016. 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.

Darby was a five-star recruit out of Potomac High School in Oxon Hill, Maryland, considered the best player in the state of Maryland and by some services as the top cornerback prospect. Buffalo seems to be stockpiling picks for next year's draft. That's not going to get it done as a WR2/WR3 as Matthews has been in two of his three seasons.

The Bills originally had the ninth overall selection but, traded up to fourth with the Cleveland Browns to select Watkins.

"When you get them and you need a bunch of them, it's something that we felt as well with the quarterback, offensive line, defensive line, you can never have enough of those guys". I'll tell you right now, he ran away from people at the Senior Bowl.

Talk and rumors about the Eagles' possibly trading Matthews have been floating for months and it's those rumors - true or not - that actually led to the Eagles' receiving calls about him, Roseman said.
