Bills trade Watkins to Rams, Darby to Eagles

Matthews played in the Eagles' preseason opener on Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers and caught three passes for 18 yards.

The Rams' second-round draft pick, the Eagles' third-round draft pick, cornerback E.J. His catch percentage past year was 62.4 percent, the lowest of his career, but it was more than 10 percent higher than Nelson Agholor, who is slated to replace Matthews as the lead slot receiver. "Love you bro. I'll definitely miss doing this with you!" In this league, you're not going to be able to get anything unless you give something.

But Hollins (6-4, 221) also is big, and he looks pretty sturdy.

The Eagles perceive their receiver group to be a strength now, after signing Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith during the offseason.

Matthews was entering the final-year of his rookie deal and was involved in multiple trade rumors. Darby has a cap number of $1.2 million this season, and next year's number is $1.4 million.

Nelson Agholor moved to the slot when Matthews was out during minicamp. This would definitely have limited Matthews' snaps. Wide receiver Jordan Matthews is no longer a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. It never gets any easier in this business because however good he is as a player, he's a better person. He was drafted in the second round by the Eagles in 2014. Last season, he was second with 73 receptions, 804 yards and three touchdowns.

"Our priority was sorting out the cornerback position", Roseman said. He only has two career interceptions but has racked up 33 pass breakups in 29 games.

Watkins heads to Los Angeles, formerly Buffalo's 2014 first-round pick. Now is that a statistic you should take to the grave and convince you that Matthews can't play the perimeter?

As for Ronald Darby, the Eagles may have finally acquired a legitimate starting cornerback. But like so many other players that were members of the Buffalo Bills in recent years, the new regime chose to make them available. Of Darby, Roseman said the third year corner has "rare speed" and noted his ability to break up passes consistently. Some of you have even followed through with subscriptions, which is especially gratifying.

Thanks for your continued support.

. The response, in a word, is heartening.
