Packers among teams interested in WR Sammy Watkins

The Bears reportedly had shown interest in Watkins as well, but ultimately agreed to a three-year, $42 million deal with Jaguars free agent Allen Robinson. He had three or fewer catches in 12 of 15 games this past season for the Rams, who elected to place the non-exclusive franchise tag last week on safety Lamarcus Joyner.

Watkins, 24, burst onto the scene his first two years in the league with the Bills but struggled last season after he was traded to the Rams, following an injury-plagued 2016 season. Watkins played all 16 games in just one season: in 2014.

The Bills wiped their hands clean of the former fourth overall selection, trading Watkins to the Rams this past offseason. Watkins has flashed moments of absolute brilliance throughout his career in Buffalo and Los Angeles, but he's had to balance his desire to be an Odell Beckham-esque, 10-target-per-game player with lingering health issues and serious changes in offensive scheme. Apparently, that is all for naught.

The Kansas City Star reported that Dallas, Jacksonville and Chicago were among the teams also pursuing Watkins.




Kansas City recently made a decision to let Alex Smith go elsewhere, instead opting to go younger at the quarterback position.

Generally speaking, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has relied on smaller, speed-styled receivers to get the job done.

The Chiefs are giving their young starting quarterback a big-play receiver.
