KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It’s hard not to call playing for the reigning Super Bowl Champs an ideal situation, and that’s something that Wide Receiver Sammy Watkins is very aware of.
After spending the first three seasons of his career with the Buffalo Bills, a less than desirable situation, Watkins sees no reason to part with the Chiefs, even if that means taking a pay cut.
He could’ve forced his way out of the final year of his contract by rejecting a reduced salary, but opted to stay with the team.
He and the Chiefs came to an agreement for a contract worth $9,000,000, down from an original $14,000,000.

Bowl. I think that’s the biggest thing.”
