Buffalo Bills posturing for quarterback in 2018 after trades

The Buffalo Bills announced two big trades on Friday, both of which involved swapping cornerbacks and receivers with NFC teams.

The Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams have completed a trade that sends wide receiver Sammy Watkins to Southern California.

The driver fired at Michael, who was able to return fire, then the suspect drove away, crashed and fled on foot, Lowe said . As he approached McCarthy's Dodge Nitro, police say the driver got out of the vehicle and started shooting.

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. The Bills can release Taylor before paying him a $6 million roster bonus next March and save most of his $18 million cap number in 2018, the final year of his contract. While previously spending his entire National Football League career in upstate NY, the veteran wide out's time with the Bills was mostly marred by lingering injuries. He has 137 tackles, 33 pass deflections and 2 interceptions in 29 games. However, his best single-season effort came in 2015 despite missing three regular-season matchups. A second-round draft pick out of Vanderbilt in 2014, the 42nd player taken overall, Matthews made 225 catches for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns. There were just 26 wide receivers who saw at least a 20 percent share of their teams targets previous year, and with the company surrounding Matthews, it's hard to say he'd even get that. However, Watkins was hobbled over the 2016 season with a foot injury. He was miscast as a No. 1 receiver, dropped too many passes and was pushing Nelson Agholor down the depth chart.

The Buffalo Bills traded for Eagles WR Jordan Matthews who seems to be Watkins' replacement.

Pacer Umesh Yadav (1/17) was the lone wicket-taker in this session, dismissing opener Upul Tharanga (2) shortly after lunch . Ashwin, meanwhile, became the fourth fastest cricketer to achieve the double of 2000 runs and 200 wickets in Tests.

Matthews was entering his fourth year in the pros. Darby is just 23 years old and has two years left on his rookie deal.

Granted, the Eagles got a solid corner in Darby. I'll tell you right now, he ran away from people at the Senior Bowl. But Webster's familiarity with Wade Phillips' system - Webster played on Phillips' Broncos defenses these last two years - gave him an advantage and ultimately won him the job. With this move, the team, for lack of a better term, killed two birds with one stone.
