Marrone's Discontent Began with Watkins Trade

No. 1 wide receivers are apparently overrated in Doug Marrone's eyes. Adam Schefter said on NFL Countdown that Marrone's discontent with the Bills front office began with the 2014 NFL draft trade that netted the Bills Sammy Watkins.

Doug Marrone's discontent with the Buffalo Bills apparently began in May when the team traded up in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft to get wide receiver Sammy Watkins. On NFL Countdown, Adam Schefter stated that Marrone was against the pick because the team traded away a future first round pick in a deal that did not involve a quarterback. Schefter added that some sources said that Marrone stormed out of the draft room, while others stated he walked out of the draft room.

Watkins finished his rookie season with 65 receptions for 982 yards and six touchdowns in an offense without consistent quarterback play. Buffalo's 2015 first round pick, traded away to the Cleveland Browns, will be the 19th overall selection.
