Sammy Watkins To Visit Colts, Titans And Texans Interested

We heard earlier today that Sammy Watkins was on his way to visit the Ravens, but Baltimore is going to face competition for his services. Watkins will visit the Colts on Wednesday after the Ravens, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets.

Additionally, Schefter reports that Watkins has drawn interest from the Titans and Texans. It’s a sudden flurry of attention for Watkins, who we hadn’t heard much about prior to today. There was reportedly some mutual interest between Watkins and the Chiefs in spending one more year together back in February, but then at the beginning of this month Kansas City GM Brett Veach indicated it’d be hard to work financially.

The Colts make plenty of sense as a destination, since right now it’s very uncertain whether free agent T.Y. Hilton will be back in 2021. Indy has youngsters Michael Pittman Jr. and Parris Campbell under contract, but the receiver room could use some help. The Titans just lost Corey Davis to the Jets, and need a new number two behind A.J. Brown.

The Texans just lost Will Fuller, so all of these teams are natural fits. Watkins has never quite lived up to his potential, but if he can stay healthy he can really help a team. He had 37 catches for 421 yards and two touchdowns across ten games in a secondary role for the Chiefs last year.

      Theyve signed a lot of guys so far. 23 so far. A lot of short term deals they can trade for draft picks later on.

        How many of the 23 FA signings would even garner trade interest? That’s a nice way of saying they wouldn’t even get 23 7th rounders for the “more than 2 Special Teams” guys they’ve signed. I’m guessing at least 10 don’t make the opening day roster.

    Baltimore messed up already by letting everyone sign lol. Dang it, ooo wells, we don’t have too sign one that bad.

      I don’t know what to make of their off season. It’s like they truly and honestly believe they can win the super bowl as a running team. I didn’t expect them to spend big money but man…do something. Signing Watkins would be nothing. Hopefully someone else falls in their lap because their WR draft history sucks out loud. They have a lot of holes to fill and that’s before having to pay LJ.
