With next week's free-agency onslaught just around the bend, teams are gearing up to recruit the biggest names on the open market.
Watkins didn't shoot down the idea, tweeting back at Mixon: "You never know brother this business is crazy."
Money is the core engine in most of these free-agent chase-downs, but Watkins fit in well with the Rams down the stretch. There's something to be said for growing inside coach Sean McVay's marvelous offense versus bouncing to a third team in 12 months.
Besides, the Rams under general manager Les Snead have operated as a wheeling-and-dealing juggernaut in the days leading up to free agency. If Watkins remains in their sights -- and, by all indications, he does -- interested suitors better find a way to outfox one of the more forward-thinking front offices league-wide.
We'll find out soon enough where Watkins will land.
