Ex-Clemson football star Watkins to join Kansas City

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Media members who cover the National Football League have talked about the Chiefs being even better on offense next season.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Chiefs have agreed to a three-year contract with Watkins worth roughly $16 million per season.

At just 24-years old, Watkins was one of the more intriguing wide receiver options on the free agent market and he'll now join a high-powered Kansas City Chiefs offense that already includes speedster Tyreek Hill, Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce and 22-year old running back Kareem Hunt.

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

Around this time previous year, the Los Angeles Rams doing everything in their power to improve the passing game after seeing all of the struggles surrounding Jared Goff as a rookie in 2016 since other than Todd Gurley, the former California star didn't really have that much to work with on offense.

The Rams acquired Watkins early last August, sending cornerback E.J. Gaines and 2018 second-round pick to the Bills. And while he seems far removed from his best season in 2015, when he caught 60 passes for 1,047 yards and nine scores in a season shorted by injury, the Chiefs undoubtedly believe Watkins has yet to reach his ceiling.

Oklahoma owns an 18-13 record behind the fifth-highest-scoring offense in the country, averaging 85.2 points per game. In the last reveal on February 19, UConn, Mississippi State, Louisville and Notre Dame were projected as No. 1 seeds.

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

Final terms of the #Chiefs expected deal for WR Sammy Watkins: 3 years, $48M with $30M fully guaranteed at signing, sources say.

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