Buffalo Bills make a splash, acquire Jordan Matthews and EJ Gaines

The team dealt veteran receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round draft pick in 2018 for Bills cornerback Ronald Darby on Friday afternoon. "We were not out there shopping Jordan Matthews". But he's way better than anything the Eagles had on the roster, and they are unquestionably a better overall team with Darby and without Matthews than vice versa. Throughout his first three years in the National Football League, the Clemson product has caught 153 passes for 2,459 yards and 17 touchdowns. His production on the ball, he doesn't have a high interception number but is PBU (pass break ups) number is incredibly high. He played just six snaps with the offense.

Taking a look at the targets Matthews has seen while outside the slot over his three years in the league hasn't been ideal.

Besides, if the Eagles are developing offensively around free agents Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery, there should be less emphasis on the role of the slot receiver.

But Matthews' departure will still leave a void.

"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".

By trading Matthews, 25, the Eagles lost one of their locker room leaders, however.
