McCoy notes 'difference' between Watkins, Matthews

Going from playing with a competent offense with the Buffalo Bills to a rebuilding Los Angeles Rams team has to put a major dent in Watkins' season-long potential, correct? 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. Gaines, while also loading up with a treasure chest of draft picks for next spring. The addition of Watkins will likely shift the two back into the roles they played with the Bills, with Woods being more of a possession receiver; Woods had 51 receptions for 613 yards and one touchdown previous year. 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.

Advantage Watkins. The dynamic athletic ability that made him the fourth overall pick has shown - when he's been healthy - on the field in Buffalo, leading to one of the highest yard-per-reception averages over the last three years in the NFL.

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. The team's future seemed bleak and foreboding.

Buffalo now owns two selections in the first, second and third rounds of the 2018 draft.

The Bills created $1.4 million in cap room with the two deals.

New head coach Sean McVay, regarded as an up-and-coming offensive savant, was hired. Boldin, too, who after racking up 24 red-zone targets with Detroit a year ago, is in position to continue to be a goal-line beast while adding more work between the 20's.

Getting Darby is a victory for the Eagles considering the revolving door at the position and the current state of the depth chart.

"Sammy has proven he can be a productive player and an explosive receiver in this league, we look forward to having him in a Rams uniform", Rams general manager Les Snead said in a news release. "We want to thank E.J. for all he has contributed to our organization since we drafted him in 2014". Watkins joins Woods and slot receiver Cooper Kupp in three-receiver sets, putting Tavon Austin's role on the team in serious question.

And as the Rams sought refuge in their Coliseum locker room New Year's Day, they knew they had to address the folly of Fisher's approach in order to ensure Goff had a viable, available path to reach his ceiling.
