Is Sammy about to become the new whipping boy to the nuckle draggers?
you spelled knuckle incorrectly
Statements like this tell me that some folks still don't know how to evaluate performance.
Example: did you know that Sammy Watkins lead the entire NFL in yards/target for the cumulative seasons of 2014 and 2015?
He's outpacing the league on a per-target basis. His only issue has been availability, and even then, he's missed the same number of games through 3 seasons as Julio Jones did (and Demaryius Thomas and Antonio Brown as well).
Cap figure could be a reason. I'd rather get Watkins inked to a 6 year deal prior to the end of his deal than pay him $13M base one year THEN have to spread another deal out over six years. The franchise tag is not THAT much higher than $13M.
good points. thanks. Because i was going to vote no brainer to pick it up.
