The moves were made day after Buffalo opened its preseason with a 17-10 loss to Minnesota. The Buffalo Bills actually traded with the Cleveland Browns to get the fourth overall pick to take Watkins back in 2014, and three years later, he's on another team. When he is healthy he is a threat to be reckoned with. Darby has started 29 games in two years with the Bills. In return, the Bills will get cornerback E.J. Gaines and a second-round pick in 2018.
Matthews is just one of seven players in league history to have at least 225 catches, 2,500 yds, and 19 TDs in their first 3 seasons.
In Los Angeles, Watkins is reunited with former Bills starter Robert Woods, who signed with the Rams in free agency after four seasons in Buffalo.
