But between Sammy Watkins agreeing to join the Kansas City Chiefs along with Tavon Austin expected to be out of the picture, 2018 is shaping up to be the ideal opportunity for Reynolds to step up and shine in the passing game for the Rams.
The Kansas City Chiefs and wide receiver Sammy Watkins have agreed to terms on a three-year contract, according to multiple reports. ESPN's Josina Anderson reported that the deal was worth three years and $42 million.
Despite the fact that Robinson missed just about the entire 2017-18 campaign, the up-and-coming wide out was still considered to be one of the most coveted pass catchers on the open market this offseason.
The 24-year-old was hampered by injuries during his time with the Bills, though he managed to top the 1,000-yard mark in just 13 games during the 2015 seasons - finishing with 60 receptions for 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns. Along with a calf strain and ankle sprain that season, he's had hip issues in the past, and missed eight games in 2016 with a fractured left foot.
The Rams acquired Watkins early last August, sending cornerback E.J. Gaines and 2018 second-round pick to the Bills.
Kansas City intends to turn its starting quarterback job over to Patrick Mahomes II, whom former general manager John Dorsey traded up to select 10th overall past year. Watkins' average salary of $16m per year makes him the NFL's third highest paid wide receiver behind Antonio Brown ($17m) and Mike Evans ($16.5m), who signed a five-year extension with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.
