PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - The Philadelphia Eagles have traded Wide Receiver Jordan Matthews and a draft pick to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for cornerback Ronald Darby, the team announced Friday.
Matthews was selected in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, and was one of just five players in NFL history to record 65+ receptions and 800+ receiving yards in each of their first three seasons.
Darby, a third-year player out of Florida State, was originally drafted by the Bills in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Darby started 29 games for the Bills and registered 137 tackles, 2 interceptions and 33 passes defensed.
Eagle's QB Carson Wentz reacted to the news on Instagram, saying, "Crazy part of this business. J-Matt was the best teammate and friend you could ask for. Crazy how close you can get with someone in a year. Love you bro. I'll definitely miss doing this with you!"
