The NFL preseason has concluded and the regular season is right around the corner. After finishing 3-0 in the preseason, the Buffalo Bills are already making moves. Today, the team announced they have sent defensive end Darryl Johnson to the Carolina Panthers in a trade in exchange for a 6th round pick. Johnson was selected by the Bills in the 7th round of the 2019 NFL draft and has slowly been developing into a decent edge rusher. According to Pro Football Reference, Johnson had 1 sack and 11 tackles for Buffalo in 2020. He played pretty well during the preseason and there are fans who aren’t happy with the trade.

My Thoughts on the Darryl Johnson Trade
Here are my thoughts on the Darryl Johnson trade. This is the time where NFL GM’s have to trim down their roster for the season. So sometimes, trades are going to happen. Johnson was a decent player but their was no room for him in the edge rusher rotation. Buffalo already has Jerry Hughes, Mario Addison, Gregory Rousseau, Carlos “Boogie” Basham and more. It was going to be tough decision no matter who it was but sadly enough for Johnson, he was the odd man out and got shipped to Carolina. The Panthers got themselves a solid player and I hope he does well for them, except for when Buffalo faces them later on this season.
My final point, this just goes to show you good of a team the Bills have. You have a bunch of players trying to earn a spot on the 53 man roster and when all of them are performing, it’s tough to choose who stays and who goes. This is a good problem to have for all of the position battles and we’ll see what the Bills do from here.
