The trades were announced minutes apart on Twitter.

The Philadelphia Eagles have traded wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick to the Buffalo Bills for cornerback Ronald Darby.

The Buffalo Bills have traded wide receiver Sammy Watkins and a sixth-round pick in next year's draft to the Los Angeles Rams for cornerback E.J. While previously spending his entire National Football League career in upstate NY, the veteran wide out's time with the Bills was mostly marred by lingering injuries.

Authorities search for mom who disappeared in Grand Canyon National Park
The National Park Service said Beadle is an "experienced backpacker and hiker" who last hiked the Grand Canyon in 2002. Park officials say Beadle was hiking with two children - ages 10 and 11 - who were found safe.

Darby started 29 games in his first two seasons in Buffalo. However, his best single-season effort came in 2015 despite missing three regular-season matchups. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder had 225 receptions for 2,673 yards and 19 touchdowns. The Matthews-Watkins swap didn't change anything there, but Matthews is more of a possession/inside target versus Watkins' down-field ability.

He joins a secondary that lacks top-notch cornerbacks.

Watkins was already a hard player to evaluate after a disappointing, injury-plagued 2016.

Prince Philip, 96, carries out final engagement after 65 years of service
Prince Philip was unexpectedly hospitalized during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, according to USA Today . The article coincides with Philip's last public engagement before he retires, which takes place on Wednesday.

The Buffalo Bills traded for Eagles WR Jordan Matthews who seems to be Watkins' replacement.

Darby is under contract for two more years, which is perhaps where the Bills get off asking for more out of the swap.

Taylor took a $10 million pay cut in March to stay with the Bills, saying at the time he was putting his trust in management to fill in pieces around him after Taylor dealt with a lackluster group of receivers over his first two seasons as the starter. "But we also have to let it play", he said. Matthews has averaged 75 catches, 891 receiving yards and six touchdowns in his first three seasons. Something has got to give, and it's got to be Matthews playing on the perimeter. "This isn't one where you're celebrating and doing a dance because you're giving up a good player and a good pick". With this move, the team, for lack of a better term, killed two birds with one stone.
