The Kansas City Chiefs have landed a big-name receiving threat to help young quarterback Patrick Mahomes stretch the field even more.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the Chiefs' plan to sign wide receiver Sammy Watkins to a three-year contract worth $48 million with $30 million guaranteed at the signing.


Adding Watkins gives Andy Reid another deep target along with Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce.

The deal would make him the fourth-highest-paid receiver in the league on annual average. Only Antonio Brown ($17 million per year), Mike Evans ($16.5 million), and DeAndre Hopkins ($16.2 million) are set to make more in each of the next three seasons.
