Either way, it's clear the Bills were looking beyond the Watkins era after refusing to pick up his pricey option for 2018. There were just 26 wide receivers who saw at least a 20 percent share of their teams targets previous year, and with the company surrounding Matthews, it's hard to say he'd even get that. Tavon Austin's outlook remains the same considering his role isn't that of a traditional wide receiver. Play-action passes will work more often, defenses will crowd the line of scrimmage and allow Goff more open lanes to throw through and give his pass catchers more one-on-one matchups in the secondary.
STEELERS 20, GIANTS 12: In East Rutherford, New Jersey, rookie quarterback Josh Dobbs threw a 28-yard touchdown pass and Chris Boswell kicked a 37-yard field goal in the third quarter to give Pittsburgh the lead for good in an exhibition win over NY.
Even as he missed eight games last season because of a foot injury that ultimately required surgery, Watkins still averaged 15.4 yards per reception, a threshold no Rams receiver reached in 2016. Watkins was one of the first people he met when he arrived in Buffalo, and now he's gone. But he came back past year to start 10 games for the Rams.
Manchester City overwhelmingly the pick to win 2017-18 title
City is much more equipped to launch a sustained title challenge, with Guardiola close to having his ideal squad. Brighton & Hove Albion: Ryan; Saltor, Dunk, Duffy, Suttner; Knockaert, Stephens, Sidwell, March; Groß; Murray.
At least the Bills have a few more draft picks to look forward to - results pending. Though not in Watkins' class talent-wise, Matthews was productive in Philadelphia over the last three seasons. "Again, if I'm coming off a 14-win season and someone offers me something that has good capital and is a worthy investment, I have to consider it".
Darby, 23, is also a full two years younger than Gaines. So, while Darby was occasionally beaten for some big plays, Gaines was routinely beaten just about everywhere. Pagula fired head coach Rex Ryan in the last week of the 2016 season and waited until the day after this year's draft to send Whaley packing.

Always a fan favorite, Bolt maintained his Hollywood smile as he jogged around the track following the race, Jamaican flag in tow. He has been a role model to the sport and a national hero in his country for his success without any taints of doping.
After Watkins' departure, the Bills now have Anquan Boldin, Zay Jones, Matthews, Rod Streater, Corey Brown, Andre Holmes, Brandon Tate, Dezmin Lewis, Brandon Reilly and Rashad Ross on its depth chart at wide receiver.
Because, as the numbers show, it won't be. That's a nice little setup they have going on there. Beane also pushed back against the idea that Buffalo is not putting the best team on the field in 2017 in order to move on from quarterback Tyrod Taylor and find his replacement in the draft next spring.
The Buffalo Bills dialed up a pair of trades on Friday morning that comprehensively reorganize their wideout room - among others.
