Packers among teams interested in WR Sammy Watkins

Bears, Packers battling for Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins

Kansas City won the AFC West last season with a 10-6 record but were bounced in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs by the Tennessee Titans.

Watkins spent the first three seasons of his career with the Buffalo Bills before being traded to the Los Angeles Rams in August.

According to NFL.com, the Chiefs plan to sign Hitchens, formerly of the Dallas Cowboys, to a deal worth $9 million per season.

But between Sammy Watkins agreeing to join the Kansas City Chiefs along with Tavon Austin expected to be out of the picture, 2018 is shaping up to be the ideal opportunity for Reynolds to step up and shine in the passing game for the Rams.

While Watkins managed to stay healthy in 2017, he's coming off a season in Los Angeles where he caught just 39 balls for 593 yards and eight touchdowns in 15 games - numbers that don't exactly stack up against the league's top receivers.

It would help matters if he stayed healthy.

Buffalo chose to decline its fifth-year option on Watkins after all the injuries, and wound up sending him to the Rams last August for cornerback E.J. Gaines and a draft pick.

Very early on Tuesday morning, there was the report from numerous outlets that wide receiver Allen Robinson will be leaving the Jacksonville Jaguars for the Chicago Bears. Kansas City agreed to trade Alex Smith to the Redskins this offseason, opening up the starting quarterback spot for Patrick Mahomes.

The deal is expected to pay Watkins roughly $16 million per season over the life of the contract.
