Both Darby and Watkins trades were terrible IMO.  I get why they did it if they really feel they couldn't keep Sammy and didn't want to lose him for nothing, and that domino made the Darby trade make more sense.  I am more ok with the Darby trade in terms of returned value, however, I still hate the trade.

 

We had an Elite talent at WR who is healthy and we had DB who contended in 2015 for DROY, both 24 year and 23 years old respectively.  Now we lost both and all we got back was a marginal DB, a decent WR, and a couple of draft picks that more than likely don't return the talent we gave up to get them.  Just don't like it...both were two guys who had the potential to make a big impact this year with the new system and regime and are young at positions of need.

 

I like the assets next year, but I prefer known talent every day over future maybes.  We will absolutely regret these trades unless we hit big with the draft assets which is not easy to do.
