Buffalo Bills rookie Sammy Watkins visits Jim Kelly in hospital


Buffalo Bills rookie Sammy Watkins made the first big catch of his career, in a sense, with a classy move to visit former Bills star quarterback Jim Kelly in the hospital. Kelly, who won four consecutive AFC titles in Buffalo, is battling sinus cancer and returned to Buffalo for treatment last month. Watkins posted this photo to his Instagram account:

Watkins' caption read:"Pray for uncle Jim great guy it's crazy how strong he is and how he continues to smile and make jokes nice (meeting) him."

The Bills traded up to acquire Watkins with the No. 4 overall pick of the draft, giving second-year quarterback E.J. Manuel a dynamic new receiving target to aid in his development as a starter. With any luck, Kelly will win his latest battle with cancer and make his way back to a Bills practice to toss a few to the rookie.
