Chiefs Restructure Sammy Watkins' Contract

The Kansas City Chiefs and wide receiver Sammy Watkins agreed to a restructured contract that will keep him with the team for at least another season. It will lower his salary cap number and he can earn a maximum of $16 million in 2020, according to a source. The one-year deal has a base salary of $9 million, and the move creates $5 million in cap space for the Chiefs. Watkins had 52 catches for 673 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games in the regular season, but he came on once again in the postseason on the way to a Super Bowl championship. The 26-year-old has just one 1,000-yard receiving season in his six years in the league after being the fourth overall pick of the Bills in 2014. Watkins can have some big games in KC's offense, but they'll be few and far between.

Sammy Watkins Won't Be Back On Current Deal

Kansas City Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said it's unlikely that the team will retain wide receiver Sammy Watkins under his current deal. Watkins is scheduled to make $14 million in 2020. The Chiefs will meet with Watkins' representatives this week. The 26-year-old came up big in the postseason each of the last two years with KC, but has been very mediocre each of the last two regular seasons with the Chiefs. Watkins had 52 catches for 673 yards and three touchdowns for a career-low 12.9 yards per catch in 14 games in 2019. Even in the Chiefs explosive offense with Patrick Mahomes throwing him passes, Watkins was an inconsistent WR4 for fantasy owners.

Sammy Watkins Plans To Play In 2020

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins said that he plans to play in 2020, but that he might need some down time after winning the Super Bowl this year and having a deep playoff run with the Chiefs last year. "I'm really focused on my health....mental health," Watkins said. The former first-round pick of the Bills is a candidate for a pay cut if he wants to remain in Kansas City, as he's owed $14 million in 2020. If the Chiefs were to move on, they'd take only $7 million dead salary cap money. Given Watkins' subpar regular season play the last two years, the Chiefs are more likely to trade or release Watkins. But it's clear that he has no intentions of retiring. Wherever Watkins is playing in 2020, he'll be a boom-or-bust WR4/flex for fantasy owners.
