Sammy can be very good for Rams feel like he will be best WR for Rams if he stays healthy. I think he can have a killer season this year.

Sammy never got the chance to shine in Buffalo. Injuries, and the lack of a real NFL QB as well as their inability to target an athlete of his ability lead to this trade. I moved here from NY, and have been a life long Bills fan, but witnessing their total incompetence has been painful!
The Bills loss is the Rams gain, here's hoping one of CU' greatest R's get his just due!! He is a talented and exciting player,who thrilled CU fans for years, and who helped set the stage for what has and will come!
I told my friends, that I just have "traded" the Bills for the Texans!!! DW4 is going to bring much joy to Texans, an those CU fans who watched history being made at CU

Now I'll be rooting for Goff to make the jump to being a good QB. That's fine. Pretty cool to have a bunch of receivers down in LA.

Buffalo seems determined...

to be worse than Cleveland, Chicago, and Jacksonville

If that's the goal, this move has them trending in the right direction.

Sammy has a higher upside, but Jordan Matthews

actually has more receiving yards in 3 yards than Watkins. To be perfectly honest, i think the Bills gave up too much to pick Sammy in the first place.

So you wouldn't have taken Sammy in the draft? Some of you people kill me

link

They didn't just draft Sammy, they spent 2 first round picks

[1]
Posted: Aug 11, 2017, 10:18 PM
 

and a 4th round pick to move up 5 spots to take him at #4. There were A LOT of good WRs in that draft that they could've taken at #9 without giving up a king's ransom. Mike Evans went #7 to TB, OBJ went 12th to the Giants, Brandin Cooks 20th to the Saints, and Kelvin Benjamin 28th to the Panthers.

It's not like those guys were flying under the radar either. Evans and Beckham were both projected to be superstars, Cooks ran a blazing 4.33 at the combine and was very highly regarded coming out of OK State, and Benjamin was a dominant physical specimen coming out of FSU (fresh off a national title).

TLDR: drafting Sammy was fine, paying 2 1st rounders and a 4th for him was ridiculous. I would say the same if they had drafted Beckham or any of the other WRs in that draft.

I'm so glad Sammy is off this roster and now with a better team/opportunity. I hope he shows his talent now that he has escaped from Buffalo.

The Bills uses up another Tiger and sends them packing for what ever they can get. But Sammy has to be very happy about the trade, I mean who da h&ll wants to live in that dump city, and play for either of their two trash teams.

Man I hated it for Sammy when he wound up in Buffalo. One of the worst teams you can go to. I hope the Rams make full ise of his talents. Good luck Sammy!

Its a shame that a lot of our former Clemson players are battling more injuries than battling an opponent on the field as of late. I don't want our players present and future to get that tag that Clemson players are easily injured.

Go Tigers......and Go Chargers

Buffalo, as a city, is a dumpster fire. It's a little bigger than Columbia, SC, but with a worse football team (lol). As a millionaire, moving from Buffalo to LA has to feel exceedingly liberating. Sammy will make millions more just off of endorsements. And, he actually has a good QB throwing to him now. All good news for Sammy!

I wouldn't call Goff a good QB at all.


Posted: Aug 11, 2017, 2:30 PM
 

In fact, he was historically bad a rookie. He's got a long ways to go before becoming an even league average QB.

I live in Buffalo and I promise you....


Posted: Aug 11, 2017, 6:43 PM
 

It is much better city than Columbia and, having lived in 7 states and visiting 44, it is one of the most underrated places to live and to visit in America.

Come here for a weekend and I promise you a great time with great people you will leave calling friends.

So happy he got out. Their field is horrible on the feet. Believe part of his problem is the field he had to play half his games on.

Believe is career will be longer now.

Cold weather teams never learn. If a great player was born south of the mason dixon, they are not built for the frozen tundra. Build an indoor stadium.

Cudos to the media! Look at the pic in this article. What a tremendous job by the local Buffalo media catching Sammy's expression the moment he was told of the trade.

As a lifelong Bills fan, I'm sad to Sammy leave, but knew it was coming. He was going to leave as a free agent after the season.

It was a mistake for the bills to draft him, knowing they didn't have a QB that could get him the ball. While the Rams are not ideal, he won't have Tyrod Taylor throwing him into coverage anymore.

Jerry Butler had always been my favorite Bill, and I told people in Buffalo that Sammy was better than Jerry. It's a shame that he had so many injury issues, and that pesky "No NFL Arm" throwing to him in Buffalo.

I wish him nothing but the best in the balance of his career.

Given the chance to go back to that draft, he was still the best WR in the 2014 NFL draft.

Good result for Sammy ! Gurley and Austin are some pretty good playmakers who just got a now- healthy Sammy Watkins to increase their big play capability .
The Rams need Goff to make a jump in his performance and with maturation and the addition of Sammy Watkins it isn't a stretch of imagination to see that taking place .

With no offensive line and no actual quarterback, kinda tough on a receiver. Oh I forgot No coach, no general manager--how exactly do they exist??

The Bills lead the league in rushing, the O line is more than adequate. Tyrod has a lot of shortcomings, but the deep ball is not one of them. Wait until Sammy disappears with Goff as his QB. He is actually one of the worst in the league. Sammy had quite a few issues that were his own fault then you add in the injury history and it makes sense to move him as he would not have re-signed after this year anyway. My money is on him signing with one of the Florida teams after this year.

This sucks.....Panthers should had made the move.***
