Following Brandon Beane, Sean McDermott met with the media after the trades of Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby. Here are some of the best quotes from his press conference. 


On the timing of the trade:

"The timing is never what you want it to be, but if we wanted to do this it had to be done sooner rather than later."


Regarding the team's prospects this year post-trade:

"Getting the players we were able to get back is important."


McDermott on his night following the pre-season opener and the trade offer:

"Not a lot of sleep last night, difficult decision, one that we spent a lot of time discussing."


On what he said to Tyrod Taylor:

"My stance with our football team and the leaders of our football team is to be honest and upfront with these guys."


When asked if he supported the trade when he first heard it:

"I'm always going to listen, Brandon's staff they go out and they find players, it's our job to develop those players."
