Sammy Watkins trade means 3 big things

Sammy Watkins trade means 3 big things

If the Los Angeles Rams needed someone to vouch for wide receiver Sammy Watkins before acquiring him in a trade from the Buffalo Bills on Friday, they didn't have to go very far. This potentially changed when the team traded dynamic wide receiver Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams before shipping starting cornerback Ronald Darby off to the Philadelphia Eagles in the afternoon.

After Watkins' departure, the Bills now have Anquan Boldin, Zay Jones, Matthews, Rod Streater, Corey Brown, Andre Holmes, Brandon Tate, Dezmin Lewis, Brandon Reilly and Rashad Ross on its depth chart at wide receiver. The addition of Watkins will likely shift the two back into the roles they played with the Bills, with Woods being more of a possession receiver; Woods had 51 receptions for 613 yards and one touchdown past year. In his three years in Buffalo - the last two in Rex Ryan's run-oriented offense and with multiple quarterbacks - Watkins had 153 catches for 2,459 yards and 17 touchdowns and averaged 16.1 yards per catch. The Buffalo Bills haven't made a postseason appearance since the team was stunned by the Tennessee Titans via the "Music City Miracle" in the 1999 AFC Wild Card Playoffs.

First of all, the team brought in Sean McVay from Washington to be its new head coach.

It appears that the Bills are building for the future, as they now hold the Chiefs' 2018 first-round pick, the Rams' 2018 second-round pick, and the Eagles 2018 third-round pick. His time in Buffalo was plagued with injuries where he played 37 games in 3 seasons, and only 8 in 2016.

"I don't know. The good thing about that is it's past my pay grade", Shady said of Buffalo's organizational approach. "And I think we'll have that this year". White now projects as the Bills' top cornerback this season with Gaines likely to start opposite him. "We want to thank E.J. for all he has contributed to our organization since we drafted him in 2014". The team is apparently interested in signing Watkins to a long-term extension.

The Rams' to-do list was daunting on New Year's Day. Executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman has a history of re-upping homegrown players early if they have been identified as part of the core. So we have been taking a look at all 32 clubs (in original 2017 draft order) and doing a little analysis. A recent report suggested some team employees believe Matthews could have practiced more but allowed his contract status to influence his decision-making, a charge that the Matthews strongly denied.
