Sammy Watkins is officially under contract with the Buffalo Bills after signing his contract on the first day of OTAs Wednesday.
All first-round picks, under the new CBA, receive a fully guaranteed four-year deal with a fifth-year club option that must be exercised between the third and fourth year of the base deal. Last year's No. 4 overall pick, Philadelphia tackle Lane Johnson, signed a four-year, $19.9 million contract, and that'll be the rough wheelhouse for the terms of Watkins' deal, as well.
The Bills, of course, acquired Watkins in a draft day trade up from No. 9 overall earlier this month that cost them their first-round pick next spring. Watkins, 20, walks into the building at One Bills Drive as the No. 1 receiver on the depth chart, where he will headline a talented receiver group that also features Robert Woods, Mike Williams and Marquise Goodwin at the top of the pecking order.
With Watkins under contract, Buffalo's only remaining unsigned rookie is second-round pick Cyrus Kouandjio, the likely starting right tackle.
