Eagles deal WR Jordan Matthews for Bills' CB Donald Darby

Bills trade Watkins to Rams get Matthews from Eagles

You get what you pay for and Darby, who has track speed but not exceptional ball skills cost the Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews, a buddy of Carson Wentz and since joining the team, statistically one of the most productive pass catchers in the league.

And if 2017 second-rounder Sidney Jones fully recovers from his torn Achilles (which may not be until 2018), he and Darby could form an impressive starting cornerback duo - something the Birds have lacked for far too long.

Wentz later drove Matthews to the airport. The wide receiver is coming off of a season in which he caught 73 passes for 804 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games.

Matthews was part of a tight faith-based group within the team that attended the same church and regularly got together outside of work, as many did Friday for dinner. Treggs had a big first game, but mainly playing against third-string players.

Jordan Matthews will join the Bills after three seasons in Philadelphia. Enter, Ronald Darby. Philly had a lot of questions at corner. With that number nearly certainly rising in 2017, you can expect a bump in pass attempts, which wasn't hard to do to begin with, seeing as the Bills have ranked in the bottom-two for pass attempts in each of the last two years. Part of the somber vibe, he said, could be attributed to the fact that the Eagles were less than 48 hours removed from a preseason game and were put through a almost three-hour, fully padded, live-hitting practice by head coach Doug Pederson. Nelson Agholor, the Eagles' first-round draft pick in 2015, has been a standout during training camp after two disappointing seasons. Matthews was finally feeling healthy and hitting his stride and expected to play out the final year of his rookie contract with the team that drafted him.

Jeffery was not able to play in the preseason opener. He said Roseman did not ask for his input prior to making the trade and notified him just before it went public. But the Eagles can still begin to sort out aspects of their new-look receiving corps and secondary Saturday.

The Bills acquired cornerback E.J. Gaines from the Rams for Watkins, giving them enough depth at cornerback to part with Darby.

Taking a look at the targets Matthews has seen while outside the slot over his three years in the league hasn't been ideal.

The film, which released on Friday and is directed by Shree Narayan Singh, collected Rs 13.10 crore on first day, the makers said. The film also starring Bhumi Pednekar, Sudhir Pandey and Anupam Kher, is an unusual love story interwoven with a social message.

Wentz was pretty honest about how much he'll miss Matthews.

Wentz believes the Eagles have quality options on the roster to help account for Matthews' production.

But Jenkins and the Eagles will carry on, and if Darby can be what they think he can be at a position of greater need, then they will all get over what happened on Friday that much quicker.
