Rams Eyeing Sammy Watkins Extension

Rams Eyeing Sammy Watkins Extension

The Rams received the highest-ceiling talent in Fridays seminal trades, and Les Snead wants Sammy Watkins to stick around in Los Angeles long-term.

The sixth-year GM said he definitely wants to sign Watkins to an extension, telling Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, hes 24, so you dont just do (this trade) for the now.

Snead said the Rams were eyeing Watkins from the time the Bills decided not to pick up his fifth-year option in the spring. With Los Angeles now armed with multiple slot options in Tavon Austin and Cooper Kupp, and featuring newly acquired No. 2 wideout in Robert Woods, Sean McVay coveted a field-stretching presence for his first Rams offense, La Canfora writes.

It probably started a little bit in the spring as youre talking to people and trying to improve your roster, Snead said. We started flirting with Buffalo and Sammy probably around the time when they didnt put the fifth-year option on him and we didnt put the fifth-year option on Greg (Robinson).

And over time I had a conversation with Buffalo and then when Brandon Beane got the GM job we rekindled that a little bit during the summer and it came to fruition this week.
