  • Market for Sammy Watkins not expected to be strong

Green Bay Packers would be one, the Bears, the Kansas City Chiefs.

Both franchises are looking to upgrade their roster in free agency, and they're competing head-to-head for arguably the two top receivers on the open market.

Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported the news, with NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reporting the deal is expected to be worth a whopping $48 million over three years.

Following the Jacksonville Jaguars' decision to not place the franchise tag on former Pro Bowl wide receiver Allen Robinson, it has opened the door to the possibility that he could leave via National Football League free agency.

Watkins rebuilt his value after a strong season with the Los Angeles Rams, his lone campaign with the club after the Buffalo Bills traded him there last offseason. The former No. 4 overall pick, acquired from the Buffalo Bills in August, finished with only 39 catches for 593 yards, though he did manage to score eight touchdowns.

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. Watkins will join Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt in what has the potential to be one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL.
