Green Bay Packers Sign Sammy Watkins
The Green Bay Packers are finally adding to their receiver room by signing veteran Sammy Watkins.
It's a one-year deal worth up to $4 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Packers have lost three of their top receivers this offseason, headed by All Pro Davante Adams in a trade to the Las Vegas Raiders. They also lost Marquez Valdes-Scantling (Chiefs) and Equanimeous St. Brown (Bears) in free agency.
The Packers' top remaining receivers are Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers.
They haven't used a first-round pick on a receiver since 2002 (Javon Walker) but have two picks in each of the first two rounds after the Adams' trade, putting them in position to address that spot high in the draft.
Packers head coach Matt LaFleur coached Watkins with the Rams in 2017, and Packers receivers coach Jason Vrable was in Buffalo when the Bills drafted him fourth overall in 2014.
In his eight-year career, Watkins has totaled 348 receptions for 5,059 yards receiving and 34 touchdown catches for the Bills, Los Angeles Rams, Kansas City Chiefs and Ravens.
