Tyreek Hill is happy that the Chiefs are signing Sammy Watkins

According to NFL.com, the Chiefs plan to sign Hitchens, formerly of the Dallas Cowboys, to a deal worth $9 million per season.

The Chiefs have been looking for a playmaking wide receiver to pair with speedster Tyreek Hill since last offseason, but resorted to using Chris Conley in the role.

He has caught 192 passes for 3,052 yards and 25 touchdowns through the first four years of his National Football League career. In 2016, a broken bone in his left foot sidelined him for the first eight games of the season, which led Buffalo to decline his fifth-year option and eventually trade him to Los Angeles.

Now head coach Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs have taken another talented performer off the wideout free-agent market.

Seahawks' decision to release Richard Sherman didn't come overnight
Sherman spent his first seven seasons in Seattle after being drafted out of Stanford in the fifth round of the 2011 draft. While a poor connection with background noise garbled his media conference call, Sherman voiced no frustration.

Very early on Tuesday morning, there was the report from numerous outlets that wide receiver Allen Robinson will be leaving the Jacksonville Jaguars for the Chicago Bears.

With the addition of Watkins, the Chiefs have now given second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes a handful of unsafe weapons to work with.

Watkins had 593 yards on 39 catches with eight touchdowns in his one season with the Los Angeles Rams after being traded from the Bills last summer.

Final terms of the #Chiefs expected deal for WR Sammy Watkins: 3 years, $48M with $30M fully guaranteed at signing, sources say.
