After the Bills traded Sammy Watkins to the Rams, Twitter had jokes.
The Bills mysteriously traded Sammy Watkins to the Rams on Friday. The fourth-year wide receiver and a 2018 sixth-round pick were shipped to L.A. for cornerback E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second rounder.
The beauty of this trade was that the Bills and Rams BOTH hot mocked on Twitter. The Bills were roasted for giving up a good player and the Rams were lit up because they acquired a receiver to catch passes from Jared Goff, who was completely unimpressive in his rookie season last year.
Here is a sampling of some of the funnier tweets about the trade.

Sammy Watkins is a member of the Los Angeles Rams. It's like the NFC version of the Bills, but nicer weather.— Adam Rank (@adamrank) August 11, 2017
The Bills sign 36 year old Anquan Boldin and then suddenly find Sammy Watkins expendable. Good God.— Ian Kenyon (@IanKenyonNFL) August 11, 2017
