The Buffalo Bills were incredibly active on the trade front today. General manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott both spoke about the trades of Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams and Ronald Darby to the Philadelphia Eagles, both of which are still contingent on the players involved passing physicals.
Beane stressed that the team wasn’t shopping either player, but received very strong offers for both players that were hard to ignore (Update: I should clarify that Beane brought up that the trades developed independently over the last few weeks). Given how closely the two trades are linked as far as the positions of the players involved, Beane couldn’t say what would have happened if either trade had fallen through.
