Former Vanderbilt star Jordan Matthews traded to the Buffalo Bills

Bills trade Watkins to Rams get Matthews from Eagles Buffalo Bills make a splash, acquire Jordan Matthews and EJ Gaines

The Eagles just improved their secondary, but it came at what could be a hefty cost for Carson Wentz.

The Bills announced two moves Friday, acquiring the services of Jordan Matthews and E.J. Gaines via trade.

It was evident that the Birds needed help at corner.

Matthews was taken in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft and the Eagles moved up 12 spots in that draft to get him. In his rookie season two years ago, he had two interceptions, but none last year.

Darby started 29 games in his first two seasons in Buffalo.

Darby was a five-star recruit out of Potomac High School in Oxon Hill, Maryland, considered the best player in the state of Maryland and by some services as the top cornerback prospect. "You look around the league, and it is a corner-deficient league". We have some people in the building who have been around him.

"There's no insurance on any of these things", Roseman said. With Jeffery and Smith on one-year deals, Matthews could have factored into the longterm plans. It was equally as hard to part with a third-round pick next year, because it now leaves the Eagles currently without picks in the second and third rounds, though they have three in the fourth - their own, Minnesota's and New England's.

Matthews' now former quarterback shared a touching tribute following the trade.

The former Clemson standout has 153 catches for 2,459 yards and 17 touchdowns in three National Football League seasons despite undergoing multiple foot surgeries. Matthews caught 67 passes for 872 yards and eight touchdowns last season and seemed poise to be team's starting slot receiver this fall. The two-year defender enjoyed a solid rookie season in 2015 under head coach Rex Ryan.

Not coincidentally, Jim Schwartz was the defensive coordinator in Buffalo for Darby's rookie season. Certainly we know the production he had.

Opinions on the deal will be understandably split, but the Eagles traded for a position of need and gave up a third-rounder and what they feel is a surplus player they won't be signing longterm. It never gets any easier in this business because however good he is as a player, he's a better person. "But we have to do what's best in moving forward". But it hurts when people you care about leave.
