    Buffalo trades Sammy Watkins to Rams

    As reported by Yahoo’s Charles Robinson, the Bills are sending receiver Sammy Watkins and a sixth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams, and are receiving the Rams’ 2018 second-round pick and cornerback E.J. Gaines in exchange.

    The big name in all of this is Watkins. The fourth overall pick out of Clemson in 2014, he entered the league with great fanfare, and former Bills general manager Doug Whaley traded up to nab Watkins. A speedster who was the rare player to be named All-American as a freshman, Watkins’ career in Buffalo has been derailed by foot injuries. He played in just 21 games over the 2015-16 seasons.

    He’s said to be healthy now after undergoing a second foot surgery in January. But it’s unlikely Watkins was in Buffalo’s long term plans: the team had previously declined his fifth-year option, and as such he’s in the final year of his rookie contract.

    Watkins joins a Rams offense that struggled mightily last season with Case Keenum and Jared Goff at quarterback; Los Angeles was last in the league nearly across the board in almost every statistical category.

    Yet again the Bills are "Waiting til next year!" At this point, they are closing in on a 20 year playoff draught, what is one more year.
