The Bills traded Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a conditional 2018 sixth-round Friday night. Here are some of the reactions from fans and reporters on social media.
getting someone to take Marcell Dareus’ $100M contract this year and not have to eat all the dead money cutting him is pure wizardry

Marcell Dareus was a third overall pick who couldn't even net a third round pick in return.

Can Marcell Dareus throw a spiral?

Campbell, Jackson, and Dareus will cost the Jags $40.1 million in 2018. The Browns' entire starting defense is slated to make $44.3 million.

I’m trying to break this down to its simplistic parts. McDermott didn’t want Dareus so he “gave him away”. I’m not saying it was a good move

Dareus has tons of talent, but zero heart. I'm not saying he's going to stay that way, but he was playing less than 40% of the snaps

To put the Dareus deal in context, he’ll have both the third- (Bills) and tenth- (Jags) largest cap hits in 2018 among defensive tackles.

So Marcell Dareus was dominant for the Bills up until the 2015 season, the year Marrone left. Dareus elite under Marrone? One can only hope

If the locker room needed a message that management is Going For It (division title), this message will suffice. #Jaguars

Marcell Dareus for a 6th round pick is pure robbery by Jacksonville
