Former Rams WR Sammy Watkins Expected To Sign With Kansas City

Former Rams WR Sammy Watkins Expected To Sign With Kansas City

All Chiefs games may be heard live in Wichita on 98.7 and 1330 KNSS.

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

However, prior to encountering the injury-plagued season in 2017-18, Robinson served as quite the prolific wide receiver for the Jaguars.

The arrival of Watkins will mean another potent weapon for second-year Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who will take over as the starter in Kansas City this season following the trade of Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins. For his National Football League career as a whole, Robinson has recorded 202 receptions for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns while already appearing in 43 regular-season games atop the highest level.

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

It would help matters if he stayed healthy.

On defense, the Chiefs have been trying to get younger across the board, releasing cornerstone linebackers Derrick Johnson and Tamba Hali and shuffling their defensive backfield. Kansas City also found a gem in running back Kareem Hunt, who's looking to build on a superb rookie season.

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

"He is going to have several interested teams".
