Former Clemson wideout Sammy Watkins traded to Rams

The Bills dealt a sixth-round pick to the Rams as part of the Watkins trade.

The Bills acquired cornerback E.J. Gaines from the Rams.

At the same time this news broke, the Bills also announced that they were trading corner Ronald Darby for Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a third round pick.

Through their acquisition of Watkins, it looks as though the Los Angeles Rams have finally managed to acquire a true number one wideout for their 2016 first-overall pick Jared Goff to link up with.

Their two leading returning receivers heading into 2017 are Tavon Austin (58 catches for 509 yards and 3 TDs) and running back Todd Gurley (43 receptions for 327 yards and no TDs).

Gaines is entering his fourth season as a pro.

After these deals, the Bills now own two picks in each of the first, second and third rounds of 2018, a draft that is expected to be rich in quarterback talent. However, he's been nicked by injuries throughout his career and only appeared in eight games last season. Watkins can be that type of dynamic threat when healthy.

While Matthews won't necessarily replace Watkins in terms of role, he'll replace him in terms of production.

The Bills continue revamping their receiver group, with Matthews' acquisition coming four days after Buffalo signed veteran free agent Anquan Boldin. He's played in 26 games, making 25 starts in three seasons with the franchise. He's caught 225 passes for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns, but his inconsistency and his lack of focus was an issue in Philadelphia.

First, Ezekiel Elliott, a consensus Top-5 pick, was hit with a six-game suspension.
