August 11, 2017 - 4:28 pm

Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane met with the media, following the trades involving Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby. Here are some of the best quotes from his press conference. 

On whether he was actively seeking trades:

"I was not shopping these guys, had calls from multiple teams about Sammy since I took over the job."

Regarding the trades being announced at the same time:

"LA got very serious about Sammy, and Philadelphia got serious about Darby, the timing worked out."

On the timeline of these particular trades:

"First time I laid this out in front of Sean and Terry was after the game last night, nobody backed out, finalized deals this morning."

Beane when asked if there are any untouchable players:

"I don't like the word untouchable.... You're always looking to help yourself now and tomorrow. I can't say I wouldn't trade a certain guy in the next three weeks, but I'm not shopping guys."
