Ex-Rams WR Sammy Watkins intends to sign with Chiefs

Sammy Watkins

The Chiefs and wide receiver Sammy Watkins have agreed to terms on a contract that should be signed tomorrow, according to multiple reports.

Watkins rebuilt his value after a strong season with the Los Angeles Rams, his lone campaign with the club after the Buffalo Bills traded him there last offseason.

There's no question about Watkins' speed and his nose for the end zone, given that he caught a team-high eight touchdowns last season.

Injuries plagued him in 2016, when Watkins played eight games and caught 28 passes for 430 yards and two touchdowns. The deal has been pegged at about $16 million a year for three years.

The Rams had considered using the franchise tag on Watkins, but opted instead to tag safety Lamarcus Joyner.

The Packers likely see Watkins as a dynamic, field-tilting receiver capable of changing the offense overnight.

The signing can not be made official until free agency opens at 9pm (GMT) on Wednesday.

The first two years of Watkins' career in Buffalo were promising.

The Colts said they were going to be very selective in free agency, which starts Wednesday, but it seems they have been in the mix for a few of the top options in the market.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, now are one of the more potentially explosive offenses in the league with Watkins, Tyreek Hill, Kareem Hunt and Travis Kelce at the disposal of second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
