The Green Bay Packers are signing wide receiver Sammy Watkins to a one year contract with a max value of $4M, per a league source. I was on the phone with a league source when the news broke by NFL Insider Jordan Schultz, so I asked to have it confirmed, and learned that the it is true, and the Packers signed Watkins to a one year deal that can go up to $4M.
Sammy Watkins, 28, played college football at Clemson and was drafted by the Buffalo Bills fourth overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. He has also not completed an entire season since 2014 and has failed to eclipse more than 650 yards since his sophomore 2015 campaign. The Packers are taking a risk by signing an injury plagued receiver who has only found paydirt 11 times since 2018, but being only 28 years old, the ceiling is still there for Sammy. He has a lot to prove and can truly step up as a WR1 if he can stay healthy and connect with Aaron Rodgers.
