Bills Send Sammy Watkins To The Rams

11:15am

Buffalo also traded former Florida State cornerback Darby to the Philadelphia Eagles for wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick.

The trade of Watkins brings an end to what could only described as a disappointing three-year tenure for the talented wideout in Buffalo.

The Rams are excited about rookies Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds, but even after the Watkins trade you have to wonder if they've done enough to get markedly better at the position.

Watkins, 24, only appeared in eight games for the Bills last season due to a broken foot.

Rather than stay at No. 9, the Bills switched places with the Browns, plus sent their 2015 first-round choice to Cleveland, so they could move up five spots to get Watkins. In three years, he played in just 37 out of a possible 48 games and was extremely inconsistent.

Errani banned for anti-doping violation
The tribunal sanctioned Errani , 30, after ruling that she could have done more to protect herself. Italian Sara Errani has been banned for two months after failing a drug test.

Among current Rams receivers, Robert Woods was the most productive guy last season and he only had 613 yards on 51 catches.

For the Bills, this move was about acquiring draft picks for the future: The new regime has already chose to move on from Watkins, the prize pick of the old regime. If Watkins doesn't stay healthy, this move could hurt in the long run. So they made a decision to move on from Watkins a year early and get a second-round draft pick.

Matthews has been a steady performer in Philadelphia. They have the Rams second-round pick and the Eagles third-round pick in addition to their own choices in those respective rounds.

The Rams were dead last in yards and scoring last season.

The 23-year-old Darby totaled 69 stops and 12 passes defensed in 14 games with the Bills in 2016, which was also his second year in the league. He had a solid rookie campaign before missing all of 2015 with a lisfranc ligament injury.
