Within moments of the Watkins deal being announced, the Bills found Taylor another productive, young receiver, Jordan Matthews, sent from Philly to Buffalo in exchange for CB Ronald Darby. Watkins' absence will give also potentially allow rookie Zay Jones to step up and claim the first spot on the team's depth chart at receiver far earlier than anyone expected him to.
The Rams' second-round draft pick, the Eagles' third-round draft pick, cornerback E.J.
Overall this is a nice move from the Rams if Watkins can stay healthy. Watkins' best National Football League season came in 2015, his sophomore year, when he caught 60 passes for 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns (in 13 games). In his three years with the Bills, the former Clemson product has hauled in 153 passes for 2,459 yards and 17 touchdowns.
The 24-year-old is scheduled for free agency in the spring, meaning the Rams are taking a considerable gamble in sending Gaines and a second-round pick to Buffalo for potentially one year of Watkins if he leaves.

Speaking on the eve of his departure, Sharif said that Pakistan had only ever seen "a crippled democracy". Sharif also announced that he respects the decision despite serious reservations.
Watkins' future in Buffalo was already in question after the Bills in May declined to pick up his fifth-year option. If you're looking for a positive to take out of what was generally a slog of a game, start here - Watkins looked healthy. He has started 25 games for the Rams but missed the entire 2015 season. Last season, he played in 11 games but was slowed by several injuries.
Watkins has played in 21 games the past two seasons after playing all 16 as a rookie in 2014. Matthews has 225 catches for 2,673 and 19 touchdowns in three seasons.
Matthews had been something of a disappointment for the Eagles after coming in a second-round pick at the 2014 NFL Draft.
