Former Clemson star Sammy Watkins to sign with new National Football League team

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.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Watkins' deal could be worth $48 million over three years. The signing comes as a bit of a surprise as the Chiefs already had a whole host of offensive weapons, namely Travis Kelce, Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill.

He was the fourth overall pick of the Buffalo Bills, where he spent the first three seasons of his career.

It's been an offseason of overhaul for the Chiefs.




Watkins had 39 receptions for 593 yards and a team-leading eight receiving touchdowns with the Los Angeles Rams last season, helping the team to an 11-5 record and the NFC West division title.

If Sammy Watkins leaves in free agency, the Rams could be in the market for a new wide receiver.

The Kansas City Star reported that Dallas, Jacksonville and Chicago were among the teams also pursuing Watkins. The deal with the Chiefs pays him $16 per year in average annual value, but the Chiefs kept the deal relatively short, given Watkins' injury history in his time with the Bills.

Kansas City intends to turn its starting quarterback job over to Patrick Mahomes II, whom former general manager John Dorsey traded up to select 10th overall previous year.
