Well, not sure if anyone saw this barrage of trades coming, but here we are.
The Buffalo Bills are making serious headlines on Friday, which may overshadow the Ezekiel Elliott news.
Buffalo clearly has some sort of plan in mind, as they've traded former top pick wide receiver Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams.

They'll get a young cornerback in E.J. Gaines, which will undoubtedly improve their defense, in addition to adding to their arsenal in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The Bills also acquired wide receiver Jordan Matthews from the Eagles in exchange for cornerback Ronald Darby and a third-round pick in the 2018 draft. So essentially, they replaced Watkins with Matthews and Darby with Gaines while improving their draft pick situation next year.
Not to mention, their set of early-round draft picks is now very impressive.
The Bills now own:— Field Yates (@FieldYates) August 11, 2017
* Chiefs' 2018 first-round pick
* Rams' 2018 second-round pick
* Eagles' 2018 third-round pick
Very interesting set of moves, but we'll have to wait and see how these work out for the Bills.
