Sammy Watkins seemed excited when the Buffalo Bills traded up for him, and it was a very bold move according to Doug Whaley and Russ Brandon.
“We thought it was a calculated risk and a risk we were willing to take,” said Whaley. “It was a very high cost, but the high cost not making the playoffs is something we weighed in and we thought this guy was going to get us to the playoffs. We think for us, the Bills organization, Mr. Wilson and the Bills nation out there, it was well worth it.”
Sammy Watkins was very happy the Bills made the move, especially when he found out it was his favorite childhood team.
The former Fort Myers, Florida native will be an amazing target for the Bills and E.J. Manuel. This Bills offense is going to be very high powered. If E.J. Manuel stays healthy watch out.
“Just being a kid you like colors and I liked the red, white and blue,” said Watkins. “I liked all the receivers they had and Drew Bledsoe. As a kid you like all the best teams (on the video games) and they were one of the best teams. So I just used to play video games with them and beat everybody.” – Sammy Watkins told Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com
