A move I fully endorse.

what has shown you he should be good for that?

Wentz only threw 16 last year and these two haven't even played a game together yet

Jeffrey barely averages 5 a year coming into this season. He is also on a one year deal

can't play the Koolaid game on this one. Color me concerned. I still think it is REAL possible Mathews is more productive in his NFL career

here is to hoping I am worried about nothing

It's O.K. to be concerned. But, I think you are way over-valuing Matthews. I don't think there's a single GM or coach in the entire league that would say he's anywhere near as good as Jeffery.

Did you guys see this ? Matthews was injured in his first practice with the Bills. It's not major, but looks like it could be a nagging problem for a while (pain).

Trading 81 probably hurt in the clubhouse but these guys are professionals and they should get over it quickly - it is a common occurrence in the sport.

CB was a real problem for the team. At the cost of a player you probably weren't going to resign next year and a 3rd round pick, you got a proven starter at a position of great need. Yes it cost them but you got a big weakness filled on a cheap salary.

It didn't take long for Schwartz to throw Darby into the Pool! He lined up as the starting Left CB at practice yesterday & did well. The Kid's got a month to get timing & communication down with the other DB's. Plenty of time & should not be a problem. Darby WILL start at Left CB on September 10th.
BOOK IT DANO!!!

Jalen Mills at right CB, and Ron Brooks in the slot. Jeeze, if Darby plays like a true #1 corner, the defense is going to be a lot better on the back end than I anticipated. Getting Darby seems to me to be about as big as a one player upgrade that they could get.

All hail Howie. They look a lot more like a playoff team with that secondary, along with Jenkins and McLeoud.

You have to find out if the kids can play sometime. Agholor should play his way off the starting unit pretty quickly and we'll find out.

The knee isn't in great shape and he had this same injury before in Philly. That doesn't' sound very good. Like it was said earlier Matthews was a throw in. Buffalo wanted the pick.
