WR Sammy Watkins, LB Anthony Hitchens intend to sign with Chiefs

The arrival of Watkins will mean another potent weapon for second-year Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who will take over as the starter in Kansas City this season following the trade of Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins.

The Indianapolis Colts haven't made much noise during the NFL's legal tampering period as several free agents have found new homes, including wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to a deal with wide receiver Sammy Watkins, according to reports from ESPN and The Associated Press. Watkins recorded 39 catches for 593 yards and eight touchdowns in what turned out to be his lone season in Los Angeles. But a broken bone in his left foot eventually forced him to miss the first eight games of the 2016 season, prompting the Bills to decline their fifth-year option.

Drafted by Buffalo in 2014, the Bills moved up five spots to snag Watkins, giving up the No. 9 overall picks, along with their 2015 first- and fourth-round picks to the Cleveland Browns to complete the selection. And while he only turns 25 in June, his previous two seasons don't scream $30 million guaranteed.

This past season, he caught 44 passes for 703 yards and six touchdowns, ranking ninth in the National Football League with an average of 16 yards per reception.

Hitchens had 84 tackles in 12 starts in 2017.
