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


That's pretty steep for a guy with his injury history.

Ouch, that's a horrible deal! Why 3 years? If you're going top end, tag on as many years as possible without guaranteed income, just in the hope that they succeed and the market overtakes them.

I think they were battling us for his services and Pace tapped out around 15 million or so.

i'm wondering, watkins and robinson both are 24 and took 3 year deals. they could have maybe demanded 3 year deals, since at 27 they look alittle more attractive for one more giant payday.

27 years old is "the prime of a player's career."
28 years old is "almost 30, when wr's start to drop off."

I would absolutely think so.

Dickerson reporting that Watkins was the Bears #1 choice, they were very aggressive with him.

Yup, but the teams still have to have some leverage, right? Well, except they clearly don't!

I find it incredible that not only has he got the average per year he was after but the short deal too.

G08 did a good job selling him but even if all that comes true, is he a top 3 wideout?

I don't think he's a top 3 wideout, no. Put him in the right offense though and I think he's top 10 easily.

KC way overpaid for him, but those two dudes on the outside with Mahomes chucking the rock? KC might be my 2nd favorite team next season!

I think he will probably explode in reid’s offense.

This bums me out a little bit. I know we signed Robinson, but admittedly I was hoping for a longshot chance of having a dual threat.
