A few hours after learning that the Bears were making a pretty big investment in former Jaguars wide receiver, Allen Robinson, we learned that the Chiefs were topping that deal in a big way to land Sammy Watkins.
Robinson’s deal was an average on his 3-year deal was $14 million per season which is top ten at the position. But Watkins will get big time bank, making an average of $16 million on his 3-year deal in Kansas City with $30 million guaranteed! This according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Final terms of the #Chiefs expected deal for WR Sammy Watkins: 3 years, $48M with $30M fully guaranteed at signing, sources say.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2018
That’s top three money, behind only Antonio Brown and DeAndre Hopkins. For a player who has never made a Pro Bowl and who’s only had more than 1000 yards once in his 4-year NFL career.
