Ronald Darby traded to Eagles

Matthews needs more time to sort through his emotions before commenting. For real. Y'all are going to see it though.

Wentz later drove Matthews to the airport. Ertz said Matthews was a role model for him.

He'll be a nice complement to veteran WR Anquan Boldin who was just acquired four days ago.

"The next person steps up and here we go", Pederson said.

"He definitely has a savvy about him, and he understands people". But a guy who essentially could play only inside. It doesn't matter what kind of relationships are formed in the locker room. And he can go up and get the ball. He was a second-round pick (50th overall) in the 2015 draft. The Eagles picked three picks prior and selected Eric Rowe.

Taylor will be Matthews' first quarterback who is a unsafe runner, a trait Matthews praised. The third-year wideout also had a strong offseason, and filled in during spring sessions while Matthews was out with knee tendinitis. They know you can't be both bad and boring in Los Angeles, as they were amid a miserable 4-12 season in 2016.

It was a busy day for head coach Sean McDermott, once defensive coordinator of the Eagles and the Bills. "I still didn't believe him", receiver Robert Woods said.

He finished his career as the most prolific receiver in Southeastern Conference history, setting records with 262 catches for 3,759 yards. And it'll give second-year quarterback Jared Goff the tools he needs to succeed after a tumultuous rookie season.

Darby is entering his third season in the National Football League and looking for a chance to evolve even more after two quality seasons, including an excellent rookie campaign.

Buffalo Bills' fans are scrambling to find answers, so here are the three biggest things that the Sammy Watkins trade means.

"He told me is was already done", Wentz said. "I am excited about how they are going to use me going forward, and I am excited about this year".

"Being amongst that group of guys definitely makes you elevate your level of play". The Bills paid Watkins most of his 2017 money with a training-camp bonus.

"You look around the league and it is a cornerback deficient league", Roseman said. Chemistry is a fragile thing, and there's no telling how the dynamics will shift when a key component - not to mention the best friend of the star quarterback - is removed. "Then when you lump them in with the names like Kelvin Benjamin in Carolina, Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee with Jacksonville, even Quincy Enunwa who was about to be the Jets' No. 1 until he got his neck injury". So many quality receivers are nearing the ends of their rookie deals. The Eagles have featured Ertz in the slot in the past, but that may happen more often now that Matthews is gone.

Brooks, who was in line to be the Eagles' slot corner this season, suffered a hamstring injury in the Eagles' 24-9 loss at Green Bay on Thursday night. The Eagles were also without Marcus Johnson, said to be another player to watch in camp.

This doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement for Matthews, who was actually a teammate of McCoy's in the 2014 season, the 29-year-old's final season in Philadelphia.

"And I know [owner] Mr. [Jeff] Lurie too. I think that allows us to have our 1-on-1 matchups and it allows us to do all the work and let Sammy run free".
