Ian Rapoport reports that the Watkins' deal could be worth $48 million over three years.
Now head coach Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs have taken another talented performer off the wideout free-agent market.
Watkins, who is just 24 years old, was the fourth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
The AFC West might be more wide open than we've seen it in a while, but the Chiefs are not engaging in some rebuild this offseason.
Watkins was traded to the Los Angeles Rams last season where he played 15 games but managed just 39 catches for 593 yards, although he had eight touchdowns. For his National Football League career as a whole, Robinson has recorded 202 receptions for 2,848 yards and 22 touchdowns while already appearing in 43 regular-season games atop the highest level.
Hitchens, who The Kansas City Star reported will make about $9 million per season, would fill Johnson's spot alongside Reggie Ragland in the middle of the defense. He was traded to the Rams in August after playing 37 games for the Bills. During his first season in Kansas City, the Chiefs signed Dwayne Bowe to a big deal, enabling them to use the franchise tag on Branden Albert at the last minute.
