The Los Angeles Rams continued to upgrade on the offensive side of the ball today by trading for former Buffalo Bills wideout Sammy Watkins. Watkins, whom the Bills paid a steep price to draft No. 4 overall in 2014, is gone with one year remaining on his original rookie contract. Watkins' best National Football League season came in 2015, his sophomore year, when he caught 60 passes for 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns (in 13 games).
Watkins logged 2,459 yards on 153 receptions and 17 touchdowns in 37 games.
Watkins's future in Buffalo had already been in question after the Bills declined in May to pick up his fifth-year option.
Among current Rams receivers, Robert Woods was the most productive guy last season and he only had 613 yards on 51 catches.
The Rams must think that Watkins is as healthy as he's been in his entire career. But the Eagles signed free-agent receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith in the offseason, drafted Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson and have been pleased with 2015 first-round pick Nelson Agholor's improvement.
The Bills' front office was boosted by an offseason regime change that saw first-year coach Sean McDermott get more say in personnel moves. Rookie Tre'Davious White and E.J. Gaines will man the two corner spots this year for the Bills. Last season, Watkins played in just eight games and totaled 430 yards and two scores on 28 catches.
