Did the Rams realize that they just recreated the 2016 Bills receiving corps?

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

"Definitely surprised", said quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

However, the trade makes things interesting for how the Bills want to position their wide receivers. "He is certainly going to be a good addition for our offense and I think the guys are excited about it". "Just surprised it happened so fast".

The Rams and Buffalo Bills have agreed to a trade which sends wide receiver Sammy Watkins and a sixth-round pick to the Rams, with the Bills receiving cornerback E.J.

One person who falls into the latter category is running back LeSean McCoy.

McCoy seems to be upset about the trade, and rightfully so.

"[There's] obviously a difference", McCoy said. "You get traded. It's a business and he has to understand that".

"I'm invested and I feel what they feel", McDermott said.

Sammy Watkins is now a member of the L.A Rams.

McDermott admitted to being taken aback slightly, but as everything was presented, he clearly saw the vision. But when you combine his injury concerns-nine missed games in his last two seasons-with the fact that he'll be playing with one of the worst starting QB's in the league inside an offense he has a couple weeks to get acclimated with, there is major risk mixed in with that upside. "It was hard decision - one that we took a lot of time discussing".

The Bills are a team trying to build for the future.

With first-year head coach Sean McDermott, the Bills are loading up on early-round draft picks in 2018.

Overall this is a nice move from the Rams if Watkins can stay healthy.

Watkins was a starter since Buffalo traded up five spots in the 2014 draft to select him with the No. 4 pick. Last season Watkins missed half of the season due to injury which limited his production. He has averaged 16.1 yards per catch in his three-year career, with 17 touchdowns in 37 games. As a 21-year-old rookie, Darby produced an fantastic rookie season, but he took a big steps backwards in his playing last year, as did most of the Bills' defense.
