Former Clemson wide receiver, and 2014 first-round draft pick, Sammy Watkins is approaching the deadline for his fifth-year option to be exercised by the Buffalo Bills.
However after an injury filled first three seasons, in which Watkins has missed 11 games over the past two years, the Bills are hesitant about extending the former Tiger’s contract.
According to Sal Capaccio, if the Bills were to exercise their option on Watkins, it would cost the team around $18 million in 2018, which would be more than double what the team is due to pay Watkins this season.
Watkins future with the Bills will likely be determined on draft night as the Bills are slated to have the 10th pick in the NFL Draft. With wide receivers Corey Davis and former Clemson Tiger Mike Williams having both been linked to the team, Watkins could be booted out of Buffalo by another Tiger.
