    I want to hear arguments for yes as well as arguments for no.

    Argument for no.

    He is a good player who is also overpaid, and some team will overpay for him again. It won't be the Patriots.

    He's under contract for 2020, and I've not heard more than that, beyond him acknowledging that the Chiefs might ask him to take a pay cut. What am I missing?

    From everything I've seen he'll be a more expensive lesser version of Sanu.

    The Chiefs have to pay Chris Jones (& others). Sammy Watkins has a 21 million cap hit with 14 million in cap space. The expecation is he'll be released.

    He's an interesting name for sure. He's still young & has been productive despite often being a injured. When he's on his game he's a high end WR2 as shown in the AFC Title & SB.

    It's worth noting that in all three matchups vs. Mahomes BB has put Gilmore on him. I think he'd be a good signing on a 1 year prove it deal as the upside is there. Not sure what his market will be though.

    He can double his efficiency (yards per target) by being an average NFL receiver, and he can improve on it by remaining terrible (but not the severe, outlier level of terrible he was last year.) Do you feel better or worse about your question now?

    Any GM even thinking about paying actual money for Watkins is a doofus. Look at his career. This past Sunday was honestly the first time I can ever recall that he actually showed up when needed. There's nothing about that guy that makes me even remotely interested unless it's at WR4 prices.

    is that true?
    Watkins (if he can learn our offense) is a burner. You don’t think he will be a 1000yf receiver on this team?

    A lesser version of Sanu would be Anu.

    He's a burner that disappears during games and sometimes during weeks in the season. WR3 tops.

    I'd take Amendola over Watkins every time even if the money was the same.
