The Chiefs have been, to some extent, caught off guard by how badly WR Sammy Watkins wants success, how much he wants to make good on his contract, how much he wants to be another strong receiving option.
They're asking him to learn all of their wide receiving positions, and he hasn't flinched.
"We're moving him all over the place, and he's handled it," coach Andy Reid said. "We've overloaded him with that. That's how we do it in this offense. That's something new for him. You can tell he's a guy that takes it away from here and studies. When we're doing all these different formations, you've got to do that. You just can't get it all when you're here. You've got to go back and you've got to review, and he's done that and he's really limited the mistakes for all we've given him."
As the story said, Watkins may not put up big numbers given the other targets on the team, but being able to play all of the WR positions should only help him. Watkins went on to say Reid is making him a better player. Watkins is currently ranked 41st on our standard WR list.
