Eagles trade Jordan Matthews, pick to Bills for CB

Buffalo Bills make a splash acquire Jordan Matthews and E.J Gaines

Matthews is dealt to Buffalo just moments after news surfaced that the Bills traded top wideout Sammy Watkins to the Rams.

In a trade to acquire cornerback Ronald Darby from the Buffalo Bills, the Philadelphia Eagles traded away wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round pick in 2018, the organization announced Friday afternoon. In his short career, Matthews has recorded 225 receptions for 2,673 and 19 touchdowns. Matthews had been Philadelphia's most productive receiver, averaging 75 catches, 891 receiving yards and six touchdowns in his first three seasons.

Matthews had spent his entire three-year NFL career with the Eagles while Gaines' NFL career has been spent with the Rams in two different cities.

Darby had an impressive rookie season, with Pro Football Focus grading him as the fifth-best rookie cornerback since 2006, behind only Casey Hayward, Tyrann Mathieu, Joe Haden and Desmond Trufant. While neither Jeffery nor Smith's contracts have the players in the team's long-term plans, two draftees in Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson did make the wide receivers room extremely competitive and cramped.

Both are blockbuster trades in which Buffalo also shuffled its cornerbacks. He has made 29 career starts during his two seasons, collecting 61 tackles as a rookie and 60 last season.
