Howie Roseman explains Eagles' puzzling decision to trade Jordan Matthews

Former Vanderbilt star Jordan Matthews traded to the Buffalo Bills
New head coach Sean McVay, regarded as an up-and-coming offensive savant, was hired.
The headliner of these trades is Watkins.
In addition to Matthews, the Bills will receive a 2018 third-round pick as they send cornerback Ronald Darby to Philadelphia. Buffalo now has two picks in each of the first three rounds next year after acquiring the Kansas City Chiefs first-round selection in April. "We're not going out there - I think you guys know me well enough now, that's not what we're doing".
"I get it", McDermott said. So Tyrod will get every opportunity to lead this team, and we're all rooting for him.
Just don't call it a rebuilding plan, Beane said. "Darby is just 23 years old and has two years left on his rookie deal".
The trades caught Bills players by surprise a day after a 17-10 preseason-opening loss to Minnesota.
"We're seeing those guys on the field", said Roseman. It's a win-now league. "It's in our best interest". The Bills declined his fifth-year option for 2018 - call it writing on the wall, if you will - allowing him to hit the open market next offseason. Matthews is also entering the final season of his contract. The company? Evans and Odell Beckham - notably drafted behind Watkins in 2014 - plus Randy Moss, A.J. Green, Larry Fitzgerald, DeAndre Hopkins. He's caught 225 passes for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns, but his inconsistency and his lack of focus was an issue in Philadelphia.
He's dealt with a troubling number of injuries in his career, ranging from a rib issue in 2014 to a lingering foot ailment that hindered him greatly last season.
But as the regular season approaches, there is genuine reason to believe things have changed for the better.
The Rams have known for some time they needed a bona fide No. 1 wide receiver, someone capable of blowing the top off a defense, drawing extra attention defensively - and opening more room for others to work, including running backTodd Gurley - and tilting the field in the Rams' direction. Watkins is undeniably a more explosive receiver that Matthews, and was slated to be the focus of Buffalo's offense along with McCoy. He went out and signed Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in free agency and then drafted a couple of receivers in the spring. When the trade happened, they had to throw in the third-rounder, because as Roseman noted, it's "a corner-deficient league", and prying away a starting-quality corner from anyone in August is a hard feat.
Darby started 29 games in his first two seasons in Buffalo.
Gaines was a valuable defensive back in the Rams' rotation.
