The Los Angeles Rams have acquired Sammy Watkins from the Buffalo Bills for E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second round pick. The Rams will also acquire a sixth round pick from the Bills.

The Bills' decision to trade their top receiver and top cornerback for future draft picks signals that first-year general manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott view the Bills as a long-term rebuilding project.

Buffalo now owns two selections in the first, second and third rounds of the 2018 draft.
