WR Sammy Watkins is set to sign with the Chiefs when free agency opens on Wednesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it's a 3-year, $48 million deal with a whopping $30 million guaranteed. Watkins never seemed to fully settle into the Rams offense after being dealt to Los Angeles last August. But he averaged a strong 15.2 yards per catch and scored 8 times. Most importantly, he didn't miss a game due to injury for the 1st time since his rookie campaign back in 2014. Watkins turns just 25 in June and remains a big-time talent. He has target competition on his hands, though, joining a Chiefs offense featuring TE Travis Kelce, WR Tyreek Hill and RB Kareem Hunt. It's a loaded group, making 2nd-year QB Patrick Mahomes a major breakout candidate in 2018.

Injury Predictor

Watkins suffered a “Jones” fracture of his left foot last spring, and missed the first 8 regular season games after surgery and being placed on IR. He was largely ineffective the last half of the year, notching just 28 catches for 430 yards. To add insult to foot injury, Watkins had to undergo a second surgery for the injury on January 20th. The team said he will be ready for the start of training camp. Perhaps. But he’s just an injury waiting to happen.
