The Buffalo Bills are cleaning house. After trading away Ronald Darby and Sammy Watkins earlier this offseason, the Bills are at it again dealing away another key player from the roster. Former 2016 2nd round pick Reggie Ragland has been traded away to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for a 2019 4th round pick.

The Buffalo Bills organization has already announced the details of the trade:

Ragland, 23, was never a great fit in the Bills new 4-3 defense. Buffalo tinkered with the idea of moving him to outside linebacker, but the idea never transpired. The former Alabama product has a ton of talent but for whatever reason, just didn’t mesh with what new head coach Sean McDermott was looking for. Ragland did tear his ACL one year ago so it’s tough to fault the Bills for adding to their trove of draft picks in recent deals.

For KC, this is a low-risk move to add a premier linebacker. Ragland looks like the perfect compliment to Derrick Johnson at the inside linebacker spot. For a team that already had a loaded defense, the Chiefs cashed in to add some more young talent. For more on Ragland, you can find my initial scouting report here.
