Los Angeles Rams Acquire WR Sammy Watkins from the Buffalo Bills


The Los Angeles Rams didn't just acquire wide receiver Sammy Watkins to be a one-year rental.

In an unrelated move, but similar in position structure, the Bills acquired wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third round pick by sending cornerback Ronald Darby to the Philadelphia Eagles. Because the Rams and the Bills have new offensive schemes this year, it's tough to really evaluate how these receivers will fare in their new homes, but obviously that's not going to stop us from trying. "It's one thing to take advice from older guys that he's probably better than or done more than". Matthews is also entering the final season of his contract, so the Eagles also faced the possibility of losing him in free agency. Those were their top two players in the secondary, and keep in mind that they allowed opponents 23.6 points per game with those two, which was the 16th most in the league. He won't be able to open up the field, but now he has two dependable veteran targets and a good rookie coming to work with. We got Anquan, who we added.

National Football League teams are in the midst of training camp and the preseason has begun. Watkins and Woods are no Swann and Stallworth, but they will provide more help in the pass-catching department than what Goff had in 2016.

Watkins joins back up with teammate Robert Woods, who the Rams signed this offseason.

Sitting at the bottom of nearly every offensive category had resulted in a 4-12 record and left rookie quarterback Jared Goff battered and bruised.

But, again, he was a rookie.

BENGALS 23, BUCCANEERS: In Cincinnati, Ryan Fitzpatrick made a good initial impression with Tampa Bay, completing his first series with a 6-yard touchdown run, before Cincinnati pulled away. The reason this is confusing is because Boldin has been a slot wide receiver nearly exclusively over the last two years playing over 70 percent of his snaps there. They, along with Tyler Higbee, Tavon Austin and Pharoh Cooper, would provide much-needed weaponry for Goff. The addition of Watkins will likely shift the two back into the roles they played with the Bills, with Woods being more of a possession receiver; Woods had 51 receptions for 613 yards and one touchdown past year. Watkins required a second operation in January after aggravating the injury last season.

To me, the big victor here is Gurley.

A new coaching staff can not do any worse than the last one Jeff Fisher headed that did everything in its power to put an offense on the field that was blander than plain toast and less talented than Milli Vanilla was.

Among 41 wide receivers with 100 or more targets last season, Matthews was 38th in Reception NEP, despite being 26th in targets and tied for 23rd in receptions.
