Eagles Acquire CB Ronald Darby In A Trade From The Bills

Posted August 12, 2017

"Eagles acquire CB #Ronald Darby from Buffalo for WR #Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick".

Instead of the players the Bills received in return, the key to whether this trade will be successful for Buffalo is the draft picks they acquired. 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. Foot injuries have been his bane, causing him to miss 11 games the past two seasons. However, his best single-season effort came in 2015 despite missing three regular-season matchups.

Watkins was already a hard player to evaluate after a disappointing, injury-plagued 2016.

Matthews is one of just five receivers to record 65 or more catches and 800 or more receiving yards in each of his first three National Football League seasons along with Odell Beckham Jr, Mike Evans, A.J. Green and Randy Moss.

The Missouri Highway Patrol were looking for Ian McCarthy , 39, of Clinton as a person-of-interest in the fatal shooting. Michael married his wife Cresinda in 2015, becoming a stepfather to her two sons. "You know he was doing his job".

Matthews, who has one year left on his contract, became expendable after the Eagles upgraded their wide receivers during the offseason. Darby has two years remaining on his contract.

In Buffalo, Jordan will be reunited with running back LeSean McCoy, who was his Eagles teammate in 2014 before being traded to the Bills.

"I think when the media starts putting it out, and we do the same thing, when media starts putting out they think guys are available, whether that's true or not, that starts getting you phone calls and that's how it started here". It never gets any easier in this business because however good he is as a player, he's a better person.

Talk and rumors about the Eagles' possibly trading Matthews have been floating for months and it's those rumors - true or not - that actually led to the Eagles' receiving calls about him, Roseman said. But by the same token, we weren't picking up the phone and calling teams on Jordan because of his value to our team.
