BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Buffalo Bills first-round draft pick Sammy Watkins signed with the team Wednesday. The team posted photos from the signing on their Twitter page.
Watkins told the media that he looks forward to working with quarterback EJ Manuel, and is quoted saying “By training camp, we should be perfect.”
Throughout this past year Watkins was considered the most dynamic receiver in this year’s draft class. Even so, in his first little taste of NFL football at a rookie mini camp earlier this month, Bills head coach Doug Marrone admits he exceeded expectations.
Watkins physical ability only tells half the story, in terms of what he put on display at rookie minicamp. He also demonstrated a level of desire and commitment, showing up to practice early to work on running routes.
