Players, Experts, Fans Weigh in on Jordan Matthews Trade

The Eagles traded Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third round pick to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for cornerback Ronald Darby on Friday afternoon.

The Bills, who visit the Linc on Thursday, probably wouldn't have traded Darby for anything after his rookie season, when he finished second in defensive rookie of the year balloting, but like several Buffalo teammates, he dropped off dramatically in 2016, as the Rex Ryan regime flamed out. Although there were rumors about this move, it still comes as a bit of a shock. Rookie Rasul Douglas is still learning on the fly and second round selection Sidney Jones may not play in 2017 as he recovers from an injury. "This isn't one where you're celebrating and doing a dance, because you're giving up a good player and a good pick". We had the opportunity to watch you develop as a player and as a person, and that is something we will never forget.

By trading for Darby the team fixed that problem. Darby has a cap number of $1.2 million this season, and next year's number is $1.4 million.

Toronto manager John Gibbons said he had really had no choice but to bring Cole in with the Jays only behind by one run. But right fielder Clint Frazier was scratched after pregame batting practice, complaining of a right oblique strain.

In three years at FSU, Darby recorded 78 total tackles and logged two interceptions - both coming in 2013. He has shown that he can be the playmaker that the Eagles need. Of Darby, Roseman said the third year corner has "rare speed" and noted his ability to break up passes consistently. But the Eagles signed free-agent receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in the offseason, drafted Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson and have been pleased with 2015 first-round pick Nelson Agholor's improvement. But instead of complaining or trying to take pressure off of yourself, you welcomed the challenge, and developed into one of the best slot receivers in the NFL. He played just six snaps with the offense. The team will miss Matthews for sure, but the cupboard is in no means bare. Matthews was a rookie that year and quickly impressed McCoy. "I think there has been a lot of talk about this (past) draft class being deep at wide receiver, but I'm real confident in (Matthews) being the best one out of the class".

Want your voice heard?

So for the final time, thank you, Jordan Matthews. It is safe to say that Eagles fans will be pulling for him as he starts a new chapter in Buffalo. Matthews is a talented young player with loads of potential.
