Bonsignore: Sammy Watkins is Rams' gift to Jared Goff
Excitement in the air as Bills preseason kicks off Updated 08/10/2017 11:24 PM

The athletic wide receiver was traded by the Buffalo Bills to the Los Angeles Rams on Friday along with a Bills' 2018 sixth-round draft pick for cornerback E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-round pick. And 2015 second-round pick Ronald Darby, who started two years at cornerback for Buffalo, was sent to Philadelphia in exchange for wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a conditional third-round pick in 2018.
Hue Jackson and company will not only have multiple first-rounders again in 2018, they now own three picks in the second round of next year's draft.
After Watkins' departure, the Bills now have Anquan Boldin, Zay Jones, Matthews, Rod Streater, Corey Brown, Andre Holmes, Brandon Tate, Dezmin Lewis, Brandon Reilly and Rashad Ross on its depth chart at wide receiver. Jordan Matthews is a starting receiver. There's a bit of irony to all of this: After the Bills sacrificed picks to draft Watkins in 2014, the team is now adding picks by trading him in 2017. Drops are an issue, but it's worth noting that Matthews has had at least 800 receiving yards in all three seasons, and he scored eight TDs in his first two campaigns. Friday's trades look to be about acquiring draft picks and rebuilding. Because the Rams and the Bills have new offensive schemes this year, it's tough to really evaluate how these receivers will fare in their new homes, but obviously that's not going to stop us from trying.
The Bills are a team trying to build for the future. However, Watkins was hobbled over the 2016 season with a foot injury. People ask about different players all the time; you never know what's serious or just bait. But if you want to take that risk, you need to pick up Darren McFadden two rounds earlier than you normally would.
Watkins is reunited with former Bills wideout Robert Woods in Los Angeles and is expected to fill the team's top receiver role. The Rams' other vertical threat, Mike Thomas, is suspended the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Despite the production, the Eagles never got serious about working out a contract extension with Matthews, who is in the final year of his rookie deal.
The Bills' secondary did need to improve, as last season, they ranked 20th in Adjusted Defensive Passing NEP per play.
Buffalo's starting receivers weren't the only two to leave the team. I have faith in coach (Sean) McDermott, I have faith in management that they made a decision based on the betterment of this team. "We've got to continue to move forward". This month alone, the Bills signed veteran wideout Anquan Boldin - ninth in National Football League history with 1,076 career receptions.
