Many awoke Tuesday to the news that the Chiefs had agreed to a contract with former Rams/Bills receiver Sammy Watkins, who was the fourth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Watkins' move to Kansas City and Allen Robinson's move to the Chicago Bears take the top two free agent wide receivers off the market immediately. Acquired from the Buffalo Bills in August, Watkins finished with only 39 catches for 593 yards, though he did manage to score eight touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 211-pounder has never quite lived up to his first-round hype but he has still put up decent numbers. Watkins hasn't played a full season since his rookie year.
South Africa bowler Kagiso Rabada out of final two Tests against Australia
Australia were 180 for five in their second innings at the close, a slender lead of 41 runs with five wickets remaining. But the fiery Rabada's conduct throughout the second Test has earned him a ban for the final two matches.
For his National Football League career, he has 192 catches for 3,052 yards and 25 scores.
In addition, Hitchens, who turns 26 in June, had two pass deflections and a forced fumble and was credited by Cowboys coaches with nine tackles for loss and five quarterback pressures in 2017.
The Colts missed out on guard Andrew Norwell and linebacker Anthony Hitchens and while it seems they were in the mix for Watkins, that price tag was likely too high for Ballard.
