The reactions have been pouring in after the Eagles sent their top pass catcher from a season ago, Jordan Matthews, to the Bills along with a 2018 third-round pick for cornerback Ronald Darby. It's clear that Matthews, who the Eagles selected with the 42nd overall pick in the 2014 draft, was a well-respected member of the locker room. His quarterback, Carson Wentz, was one of the first to post a message about his now-former teammate on social media.
Despite being teammates for a short period of time, newly acquired WR Torrey Smith offered his words of support, too.
Trey Burton and Alshon Jeffery, fellow SEC-products posted some powerful messages on their Twitter.
