Buffalo Trades Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby

Who says player-for-player trades never happen in the NFL? Buffalo shook up Friday afternoon by making a couple deals to revamp their receiving corps and secondary.

First, they dealt WR Sammy Watkins and a 2018 sixth-round pick to the LA Rams for CB E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-round pick.

Then, with a new surplus at corner and a deficit at receiver, they traded CB Ronald Darby to Philadelphia for WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick.

Ezekiel Elliott Suspended Six Games

I'm not even sure where to start with this. I'm all for punishing domestic violence, but players with much stronger evidence against them (i.e. Josh Brown) got much shorter suspensions. Also, we're talking about an incident from before Elliott's rookie year. How on earth did the NFL investigation drag on for over a year? Why is this suspension being announced now? Of course, Elliott can now appeal...

Dolphins Sign Jay Cutler

The Miami Dolphins have agreed to a deal with quarterback Jay Cutler. Per Adam Schefter, it's a one-year deal for $10 million, plus incentives.

The former Commodores, Broncos, and Bears signal-caller had been headed to the broadcast booth, but the Fins lured him into a reunion with Adam Gase, one of his offensive coordinators, in Chicago after Ryan Tannehill's non-contact knee injury. As yet, no announcement has been made about Tannehill's status for this season or which course of recovery he will choose.

NFL Coaches Skeptical of Chip-Generated Data

Now that we've got the book out of the way, we can get back to linking and discussing really good football articles we find around the Interwebs. And this is a good one: Kevin Seifert discusses how coaches feel about the in-game movement data provided by chips in player shoulder pads. They are surprisingly unexcited by it. But I think I know why, and it's not simply because they're old-school and anti-analytics. (Click to read more.)
