Eagles Trade Jordan Matthews and Pick for Bills' Ronald Darby

Bills trade Watkins to Rams get Matthews from Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles on Friday executed a trade, and paid a steep price in the process, that they absolutely needed to make.

Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick have been traded from the Eagles to the Bills in exchange for cornerback Ronald Darby, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "It goes to the player that we got, the position that we're acquiring and how hard it is to find those guys".

A three-year standout at Florida State, Darby was the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2012. He's never eclipsed 1,000 yards, is prone to occasional drops and didn't prove he could win on the perimeter in his few opportunities there. Since the team basically would have had to choose between the two, they decided to make a move now and continue to build toward the future.

Darby was teammates in Buffalo in 2015 with Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham and Brooks. "But we have to do what's best in moving forward". Suddenly, the Eagles have five cornerbacks under the age of 25 who could potentially start for them in Darby (23), Jones (21), Douglas (23), Jalen Mills (23) and C.J. Smith (24). Robinson is having a bad camp and said recently that he's nowhere near where he should be.

Also, with Jeffery, among others, here on a one-year deal, Roseman stressed that he did not want to trade Matthews and get back someone with the same looming free agency problem. The Buffalo Bills also acquired a 2018 third-round pick for Matthews.

The loss of Matthews hurts, but should be mitigated. He only has two career interceptions but has racked up 33 pass breakups in 29 games. Versatile halfbacks Darren Sproles and Donnel Pumphrey are slot specialists. "(Jordan) Matthews" McCoy said when asked who has caught his eye.

It was Matthews who kept the drive alive with a 7-yard catch on fourth-and-6 from Green Bay's 42, three plays before Wentz connected with Mack Hollins on what Hollins turned into a 38-yard touchdown ramble, the fourth-round rookie breaking from the middle of the field to the left sideline and delivering what Wentz later labeled "two pretty nasty stiffarms there to finish up the play". Well, it didn't take long for the team to find a partner.
