Sammy Watkins expecting his best years under Andy Reid

New, comments

Sammy Watkins knows who the boss is in Kansas City and is wasting no time telling folks how he feels about him. That boss would be Andy Reid, aka the GOAT, according to Watkins.

Watkins has one 1,000-yard season in his career playing under Tyrod Taylor. Despite four years in the NFL, he is just 24 years old so it’s reasonable to think he’s still improving. If Patrick Mahomes is what they say he is this will also be his best quarterback. It’s set up for him to have his best years.

Some of Brett Veach’s moves (Reggie Ragland, Cameron Erving) have suggested that he strongly believes in the ability of the Chiefs coaching staff to get the most out of certain players and that’s what this one feels like to me. The Chiefs think their coaches and their offense can get the most out of him, just like their offense got more out of Tyreek Hill the last two years (and Travis Kelce) than others would.

Watkins should be motivated. If he delivers three of his best seasons in Kansas City, he’ll be set up for another monster pay day at age 27.
