Bills sign first-rounder Sammy Watkins


On a day which we found out the Bills were without two of their biggest stars on defense, they needed some good news on the other side of the ball.

They got it with the signing of first-rounder Sammy Watkins to his rookie deal.

While the formulaic paperwork won’t be as big a deal if either of the injuries to Mario Williams or Kiko Alonso linger, getting the Clemson wideout under contract is a positive step for the Bills.

Given what they surrendered to move up for him, they need him making plays from the start, and having the business taken care of clears the decks for him to build rapport with quarterback E.J. Manuel.

    Sammy Watkins is a slower version of Cordarelle Patterson.

    Having seen Buffalo’s only tourist attraction, Sammy is ready to go back to Florida.

    How come I read a whole article about Sammy Watkins but didn’t see the name Jimmy Graham anywhere in it?

    Are we still beating that dead horse about the “shoulda traded for Jimmy Graham” nonsense?

    Out seeing the sights in Buffalo, eh? I guess that should properly be “out seeing the sight”.

    You’re close mammy.

    As Sammy admires the most powerful waterfall in North America, he’s reminded how he is the most powerful playmaker coming out of the draft.

    Cordarelle Patterson couldn’t run an out route this past year……………….Sammy is not a one year college wonder that came out of nowhere either…..proven production on his college resume…

    Those of you making snide comments about Buffalo’s tourist attractions don’t have a clue what you are talking about.
