Revisiting the Chiefs’ decision to sign Sammy Watkins

Revisiting the Chiefs’ decision to sign Sammy Watkins

This isn’t the first time and will be far from the last time, writes Pete Sweeney. Throughout preseason and training camp, I have been somewhat critical of the move by the Kansas City Chiefs to sign wide receiver Sammy Watkins. It’s been less about bringing Watkins aboard but rather the cap room that it took to do so when it felt like there were other deficiencies on this team. The Chiefs are paying Watkins $30 million guaranteed over the next three seasons. The Chiefs bought a motorcycle when they needed diapers. https://t.co/K9x98labdS— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) August 22,...

The latest Debrief, Week 1: Chargers, Chiefs among teams on familiar path | NFL It shouldn’t be a surprise by now that the Chiefs can generate 38 points even when some of their highest-priced players (Sammy Watkins and Travis Kelce) combine for only 27 yards.

It is not time to panic about Sammy Watkins

It is not time to panic about Sammy Watkins

So far in the preseason, Watkins doesn’t have a single reception — and that’s worrying more than a few people. We’ve sure been up and down on Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins, haven’t we? When Watkins was signed to a three year, $48 million contract ($30 million guaranteed) in March, 88 percent of Arrowhead Pride readers approved of the signing — even with an expensive contract for a receiver that had fewer than 600 yards for the Rams in 2017. Both Joel Thorman and Pete Sweeney said that Watkins, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill could be among the best triplets in the...

What the Kansas City Chiefs are saying about Sammy Watkins

What the Kansas City Chiefs are saying about Sammy Watkins

Watkins hasn’t looked good so far this preseason; what are the Chiefs saying? Let’s address a preseason elephant in the room, shall we? Through two games, Sammy Watkins hasn’t looked all that great. Watkins wasn’t targeted in the Kansas City Chiefs’ first preseason game while dealing with an injured hip, and then he wasn’t involved in the Chiefs’ second game against the Atlanta Falcons. In 24 snaps, Waktins had three targets but no catches. Sammy Watkins, wyd?? pic.twitter.com/bxKITZGtj3— K Y L E (@liamquigs) August 18, 2018 The team is blaming Watkins’ slow start on...
