NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Watkins' deal is fully guranteed at $19.94 million over four years, with a $12.8 million signing bonus. The rookie contract contains offset language.
The 6-foot-1 wide receiver has world-class speed, tracks the ball well and has great hands. His ability to run after the catch and strength to break tackles gives him the aptitude to create big plays.
After trading wideout Stevie Johnson to the San Francisco 49ers during the draft, Watkins now highlights a receiving corps of 2013 second-round pick Robert Woods, newly-acquired Mike Williams, T.J. Graham and speedster Marquise Goodwin.
"By training camp, we should be perfect," Watkins said Wednesday of working with his QB.
As for the haul the Bills gave up to get the dynamic rookie receiver, veteran players weren't worried.
