Chiefs to sign WR Sammy Watkins to three-year deal

Chiefs to sign WR Sammy Watkins to three-year deal

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news on Tuesday morning, with National Football League insider Ian Rapoport confirming it soon after.

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.

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.

The big, physical receiver (6-1, 211 pounds) specializes in stretching defenses vertically. Watkins hasn't played a full season since his rookie year. Expectations have been high for the former Tigers star, considering Buffalo gave up future first-and fourth-round picks to trade up five positions to draft him with the No. 4 overall pick in 2014.

Wells Fargo And Comm Mn accumulated 0.03% or 2.34 million shares. 110,485 are held by Peak6 Ltd Partnership. Canada Pension Plan Inv Board invested 0.02% in Dick's Sporting Goods , Inc. (NYSE:DKS) for 173,186 shares.

He has a career 192 receptions for more than 3,000 yards.

The Rams decision not to franchise tag Watkins, instead tagging LaMarcus Joynerwas a pretty obvious one, considering Watkins was the second most productive former Buffalo Bills wideout on the Rams previous year (behind Robert Woods), which is not a great title to have.

The Rams acquired Watkins early last August, sending cornerback E.J. Gaines and 2018 second-round pick to the Bills. The Chiefs later worked out a deal with linebacker Anthony Hitchens.
