Philadelphia Eagles Trade Jordan Matthews To Buffalo Bills

The Rams' second-round draft pick, the Eagles' third-round draft pick, cornerback E.J.

His career in Buffalo, however, was marked with injuries and disappointment.

Watkins (6-1, 211) was once considered the prized receiver of the 2014 National Football League draft, which turned out to be loaded at the position. But then Bills GM Doug Whaley traded away the Bills first round pick in 2015 to grab Watkins. In three years, he played in just 37 out of a possible 48 games and was extremely inconsistent.

The 24-year-old has 17 career touchdown receptions and averages 65 receiving yards a game, 24th-best among active players.

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.

Watkins didn't score, but if he stays healthy, that will come. 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. So they chose to move on from Watkins a year early and get a second-round draft pick. The Rams also received a sixth round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft in the trade.

Matthews has been a steady performer in Philadelphia.

This move provides them with more offensive firepower and also gives them a reliable go-to receiver they have not had in years. He caught 28 passes for 430 yards and two scores in his injury shortened season a year ago. He had a solid rookie campaign before missing all of 2015 with a lisfranc ligament injury. He was limited to just eight games last season, catching 28 passes for 430 yards and two touchdowns.
