    Here's the thing... The current regime straight up doesn't like some of the players the prior regime drafted. We've all been bitching about how stupid Whaley's drafts were. It stands to reason that the new guys just don't want the trash that their predecessors picked up.

    The trade is bad. But so is this roster.

    Clear out the shit and start over. That's what we're going to have to live with (again) for the next 3 years.

    BUMP.

    This is going to go down as one of the worst trades the Bills have ever done as far as value is concerned.

    So dumb.

    I think they got fair value in return, I just don't think we should have given up Darby.

    No, they didn't.

    Darby is worth more than a 3rd and EJ Gaines ... Let's not even bring up Gaines.

    The trade was crap.

  5. Rock on:

    The trade was for a 3rd and Jordan Matthews.

    It would be tough to trade Darby for Gaines considering Gaines was on the Rams and Darby went to the Eagles.
    Just my 2 Cents

    You're right, I got them backwards.

    A 3rd and Matthews.

    Not much better.

    Maybe they just don't value the position as much, or they just want to stockpile those picks.
