5 realistic WR targets for the Rams in free agency

Sammy Watkins

Sammy Watkins agreed to a three-year, $48 million deal with the Chiefs, according to ESPN.com, adding another weapon to their growing arsenal.

Watkins, 24, was the fourth overall pick by the Buffalo Bills in 2014.

Perhaps only now, in his absence, will the Rams learn the true value of receiver Sammy Watkins.

Watkins' departure - which will become official Wednesday, when free agents can sign their new agreed-upon contracts - leaves the Rams with a hole, but one that is hard to define. 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 is coming off a 2017 season with the Rams in which he had 39 catches for 593 yards and eight touchdowns in a supporting role.

Last season running back Kareem Hunt (1,782 total yards, 11 touchdowns), tight end Travis Kelce (1,038 yards, eight touchdowns) and wide receiver Tyreek Hill (1,183 yards, seven touchdowns) were all named to the Pro Bowl.

Now, Watkins joins an offense that already has plenty of big-play potential. He also fits the bill of a taller, faster receiver which the Chiefs have been looking for to pair with quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Watkins initially entered the National Football League with the promise of being one of the game's best receivers.

The Chiefs are making their first free agent splash.
