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. He's received just 42 targets while playing on the outside, accumulating 27 receptions for 284 yards and one touchdown on those targets.
The Eagles first game with Darby on the roster will be Thursday, August 17, when the Bills come to town for the second preseason game for both squads.

The Buffalo Bills traded for Eagles WR Jordan Matthews who seems to be Watkins' replacement.
Eagle's QB Carson Wentz reacted to the news on Instagram, saying, "Crazy part of this business". But by the same token, we weren't picking up the phone and calling teams on Jordan because of his value to our team. "We do what's in the best interest of the team, and then when you pull the trigger on anything like this, you think about the player you're giving up and the draft pick, but we felt like this was the best decision for us". The two-year defender enjoyed a solid rookie season in 2015 under head coach Rex Ryan. Nelson Agholor, the Eagles' first-round draft pick in 2015, has been a standout during training camp after two disappointing seasons.
With these two deals, the Buffalo Bills have now traded two of their top players at their respective positions, which might signal a rebuild is in progress. But it hurts when people you care about leave. "But we've got to do what's in the best interest of this team moving forward and that's why we made the trade". However good he is as a player, he's a better person.
