Free agent wide receiver Sammy Watkins will sign with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Watkins will sign a three-year, $48 million with Kansas City when the free agent market opens on Wednesday. He will combine with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce as receiving threats for new Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes, as the second year quarterback looks to make an impact. Watkins was linked with the Packers, Bears, Jaguars, and a return to the Rams, but he will join the AFC West champions in 2018. He caught 39 of his 70 targets for the Rams, totaling 593 yards, but did have eight touchdown catches for Los Angeles. While he only has 1023 yards over the last two seasons, the 24-year-old Watkins (the 4th pick of the 2014 draft) had 2029 yards in his first two seasons with the Bills.
