Sammy Watkins expected to sign three-year, $48 million deal with Chiefs

Sammy Watkins expected to sign three-year, $48 million deal with Chiefs

The Indianapolis Colts haven't made much noise during the NFL's legal tampering period as several free agents have found new homes, including wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

He starred at Clemson, and the Bills gave up future first- and fourth-round picks in order to move up five spots and draft Watkins in 2014.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the deal will be worth $16 million per year over three seasons. However, Watkins' eight touchdown catches were the most on the team.




Watkins, 24, proved he could stay healthy while with the Rams in 2017, but his numbers didn't stack up among the game's best receivers. He had three or fewer catches in 12 of 15 games this past season for the Rams, who elected to place the non-exclusive franchise tag last week on safety Lamarcus Joyner. Still, he was quite productive over his first two years in the league with almost 1,000 yards in his rookie year and 1,047 yards in just 13 games in his sophomore campaign. That's unfortunate, and not the way they planned it, although the Rams likely will receive a compensatory third-round draft pick in 2019 for the loss of Watkins to free agency.

The big armed second-year quarterback out of Texas Tech will now have Watkins, the speedy Tyreek Hill and the lethal Travis Kelce at his disposal, along with Kareem Huntout of the backfield.

The top two receivers on the free-agent market are off the board.
