Colts were 'in the final mix' for Sammy Watkins

According to reports, the Chiefs have agreed to terms with free-agent receiver Sammy Watkins and free-agent inside linebacker Anthony Hitchens.

Drafted by Buffalo in 2014, the Bills moved up five spots to snag Watkins, giving up the No. 9 overall picks, along with their 2015 first- and fourth-round picks to the Cleveland Browns to complete the selection.

The Los Angeles Rams want to keep Sammy Watkins, but that's not going to happen.

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. The deal with the Chiefs pays him $16 per year in average annual value, but the Chiefs kept the deal relatively short, given Watkins' injury history in his time with the Bills.

Hence, veteran quarterback Alex Smith was dealt to the Washington Redskins and will officially join his new team on Wednesday. After an early-season game in which he had neither a catch nor a target, Watkins went on social media and made a thinly veiled post about his displeasure.

The Rams had considered using the franchise tag on Watkins, but opted instead to tag safety Lamarcus Joyner.

While Watkins has shown glimpses of greatness, the 24-year-old has struggled to find consistency.
