Los Angeles acquires Sammy Watkins in a trade from Bills

As for E.J Gaines, he was drafted in the sixth-round of the 2014 draft out of Missouri. Taylor took a $10 million pay cut during the offseason to remain with the Bills, but his future with the team remains in doubt.

Ultimately, though, this is a player who has per-16 game averages of 78 receptions, 930 yards and seven touchdowns through three seasons. With all the changes plus a talented running back in Todd Gurley and the most expensive and overpaid slot receiver Tavon Austin (now not overmatched as the top option), there is no excuse and 2017 now looks like a pivotal year in Goff's career.

"I'm always going to listen", McDermott said of the trade proposal. Los Angeles isn't one player away from contending. Watkins won't be on the field Saturday when the Rams open their preseason schedule against Dallas, but Watkins is expected at the Coliseum to watch his new team.

Darby, 23, was a second-round pick of Buffalo in 2015 out of Florida State and represents an immediate upgrade for an Eagles CB depth chart. People ask about different players all the time; you never know what's serious or just bait.

8 overall pick by the Rams in 2013, was signed to a massive six-year, $56.14 million contract last year. He missed part of the offseason because of wrist surgery and is now dealing with a hamstring injury.

While the National Football League preseason has just started, it looks like the Buffalo Bills are making some moves.

This doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement for Matthews, who was actually a teammate of McCoy's in the 2014 season, the 29-year-old's final season in Philadelphia.

Matthews now has a little less than a month to get up to speed with a new offense. His numbers suggest he's deserving of something in the range of Kenny Stills (four years, $32 million) or Austin (four years, $42 million).

There is also a knee injury to consider. One ailment after the next has crept up in the months since. All of the moves have been designed at getting him into a better place. Guys make the decisions for our team. The departure of Matthews will make it easier for the front office to keep some of the promising young talent on the 53-man roster. Though most analysts and writers including myself believe that Gurley is in for a bounce-back season, defenses from opposing teams have to respect and plan for the passing game of LA now that they tout a true WR1 in Watkins.

"I'd love to have some continuity there". Let's break it down in some fantasy terms to what the landscape might look like after this blockbuster trade.
