Eagles Trade Jordan Matthews To Bills For CB Ronald Darby

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Eagles have traded wide receiver Jordan Matthews to the Buffalo Bills and a 2018 third-round pick for cornerback Ronald Darby.

Matthews was entering the final-year of his rookie deal and was involved in multiple trade rumors. The Eagles needed to upgrade at the cornerback position, clearly their weakest position.

Darby, 23, was a second-round pick of the Bills in 2015. He has two interceptions and and 33 pass deflections in two seasons.

In a subsequent move, the Bills have traded WR Sammy Watkins to the Rams for CB E.J. Gaines.

All of this comes on the heels of the NFL suspending Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games.

Some of the Eagles said goodbye to J-Matt on Twitter.
