Former Missouri DB E.J. Gaines headed to Buffalo as part of Sammy Watkins trade

The Buffalo Bills made some waves early Friday afternoon with a couple of big trades involving some former SEC players.

E.J. Gaines, a cornerback for the Los Angeles Rams who played his college football at Missouri, has been traded along with a 2018 second-round pick to the Buffalo Bills, in exchange for Sammy Watkins and a 2018 sixth-round pick.

The Bills announced the move on Twitter.

Gaines played at Missouri from 2010-13, two seasons in the Big 12 and the school’s first two in the SEC. He had 183 tackles while playing for the Tigers and eight interceptions. He also returned one punt for a touchdown.

The Rams drafted Gaines in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. In two seasons, one in St. Louis and one in L.A., he has 126 tackles and two interceptions.
