The Buffalo Bills have traded Sammy Watkins and a 2018 sixth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for E.J Gaines and a 2018 second-round pick, the teams announced on Friday. In a subsequent trade, the Bills received Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick from the Eagles in exchange for Ronald Darby.
Altogether, the trade nets the Bills second-round and third-round picks in 2018 but leaves the roster in a lesser state for the 2017 season. Matthews has been a relatively productive receiver in Philadelphia, but he doesn’t bring the big play ability that Watkins does.

Previously, players could only wear the color of cleats their team chose. This year, players can choose white, black, their team’s primary color, or a secondary uniform color for their game cleats.

Catching a ball one handed is hard. Catching it that far out in front of you is harder. Snagging it with your inside hand takes a grip that is difficult to comprehend.
I know, I know, he’s wearing incredible gloves. Every time Beckham does something incredible in pregame warmups, people point to the gloves. But hey, everybody else is wearing them too. Beckham’s the only one doing things that don’t make sense.
