However, that deal is reportedly not yet finalized.
According to Fox’s Mike Garafolo, Watkins’ contract was not approved by the NFL, but the issue that sidetracked the deal was simply “a minor language tweak.”
The contract has been turned in once again for approval, according to Garafolo. It’s unknown what specifically sent the contract back for another edit.
The Bills traded away their 2015 No. 1 pick for Watkins, who’s expected to be a major player in Buffalo’s offense in Year One.
