In a flurry of moves on Friday, the Buffalo Bills have made significant changes in their roster as the season approaches.

The Bills acquired cornerback EJ Gaines and a second round pick in the 2018 NFL draft from the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for wide receiver Sammy Watkins. They also sent cornerback Ronald Darby to the Philadelphia Eagles, acquiring wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft in return, as reported by the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

It appears that the Bills are building for the future, as they now hold the Chiefs' 2018 first-round pick, the Rams' 2018 second-round pick, and the Eagles 2018 third-round pick.
