NFL Free Agency opens in less than two weeks and the Chiefs could target a wide receiver if they part ways with Sammy Watkins. Breshad Perriman would give Kansas City a big body on the outside and should be cheaper than Watkins despite a breakout season in 2019. If the Chiefs want to target some cheaper WRs, Demaryius Thomas and Taylor Gabriel are available to sign as well.
The Kansas City Chiefs have just five draft picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, but do have selections in each of the first 5 rounds. Could they find Sammy Watkins’ replacement in the draft? Jalen Reagor is a very similar player to Watkins and would offer speed and versatility for a much cheaper cost. If the Chiefs want a more physical wide receiver, Baylor’s Denzel Mims or Clemson’s Tee Higgins would fit that mold.
Here’s 6 potential Sammy Watkins Replacements:
- Demaryius Thomas
- Taylor Gabriel
- Breshad Perriman
- Denzel Mims
- Tee Higgins
- Jalen Reagor
