Eagles trade Jordan Matthews to Bills for CB Ronald Darby

12 August, 2017, 00:12 | Author: Lula Armstrong
  • Well the Eagles have a made a move to get cornerback

As a result, it's clear to see that Matthews will be expected to assume No. 1 receiver duties upon his arrival. He was the No. 4 selection in the 2014 draft and has caught 17 touchdowns and 153 passes for 2,459 yards in his three seasons.

Ronald Darby was a second round pick by the Bills in the 2015 draft. With that number nearly certainly rising in 2017, you can expect a bump in pass attempts, which wasn't hard to do to begin with, seeing as the Bills have ranked in the bottom-two for pass attempts in each of the last two years.

Matthews has been the best slot receiver in the National Football League over the past three seasons, pulling in more yards from the slot than any other player. He has two career interceptions, both coming in his rookie season.

"You worry about everything when you trade a professional like Jordan Matthews", said Roseman.


Darby was a five-star recruit out of Potomac High School in Oxon Hill, Maryland, considered the best player in the state of Maryland and by some services as the top cornerback prospect. The Eagles have several different options for the slot, starting with Nelson Agholor, who'll get the first chance to prove that his impressive training camp signifies an awakening after two dismal seasons.

In the preseason opener against Green Bay, albeit without Jeffery on the field, Wentz completed four passes, and three were to Matthews. The 24-year-old receiver struggled in 2016, totaling 28 catches for 430 yards and two touchdowns over eight games while dealing with a foot injury. Darby is the fourth player from the Bills to join the Eagles' defense in the last two seasons.

"E.J. has been a dedicated professional during his time with us and we wish him and his family the best in their future endeavors".

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. "But we have to do what's best in moving forward".
