Bills trade WR Sammy Watkins to Rams, CB Ronald Darby to Eagles

Sammy Watkins of the Buffalo Bills catches

The Buffalo Bills completed a pair of blockbuster trades on Thursday, in deals that will send wide receiver Sammy Watkins and cornerback Ronald Darby out of Buffalo, the team announced.

Additionally, the Bills traded corner back Ronald Darby to Philadelphia in exchange for wide receiver Jordan Matthews and the Eagles' 2018 third round pick.

Watkins, 24, has exceled for the Bills whenever he's been healthy on the field, but has struggled the last two years with injuries to his foot. During his rookie season, he caught 65 passes for 982 yards and 6 touchdowns.

As a result of these transactions, the Bills now own two selections in the first, second and third round of the 2018 Draft. Watkins appeared in 37 games for the Bills posting 153 catches, nearly 2,500 yards and 17 touchdowns.

He was drafted by Philadelphia 42nd overall in the second round of the 2014 draft. The Rams also received a sixth-round pick in 2018.

The trades confirm the Bills' disappointment with Watkins.

"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 team statement. He missed three games in 2015 and half the season a year ago.
