Chiefs to sign WR Watkins

Chiefs to sign WR Watkins

Traded to the Rams last season, Watkins produced eight touchdowns and averaged 15.2 yards per catch, although his overall production (39 catches, 70 targets, 593 yards) in Sean McVay's offense was mostly lacking. Prior to his time in California, he spent two seasons with the Buffalo Bills. 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.

The deal can not become official until free agency opens on Wednesday.

And he's a fantastic fit for the Chiefs, who now have a bunch of field stretchers on their versatile offense. As Mahomes gets set to take over for Alex Smith, obviously it should help to have plenty of talent around the second-year quarterback.

With the addition of Watkins, the Chiefs have now given second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes a handful of risky weapons to work with.




The Kansas City Chiefs may have the best offense in the National Football League at the start of the 2018 season, at least on paper.

Two years later the Chiefs would snag Reid's old pal Jeremy Maclin when he became a free agent, inking the former Eagles wideout to a $55 million deal, only to cut him two years later.

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 AFC West might be more wide open than we've seen it in a while, but the Chiefs are not engaging in some rebuild this offseason.
