Chiefs set to sign WR Watkins, LB Hitchens”

Hitchens deal can not be finalized until the new league year opens Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.

According to reports, the Chiefs have agreed to terms with free-agent receiver Sammy Watkins and free-agent inside linebacker Anthony Hitchens.

Hitchens was linked to the Colts even before the legal tampering period began and he was thought of by many as the ideal match for the new 4-3 defense, which will be run by his former linebackers coach in Matt Eberflus.

The 24-year-old Watkins intends to sign a $48 million, three-year contract with $30 million in guarantees after spending last season with the Los Angeles Rams. At Iowa, he played mostly on special teams as a freshman and sophomore.

One day after letting yet another veteran linebacker go in free agency in longtime veteran Tamba Hali, the Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly set to bolster the unit with some younger reinforcement.

The loss of Hitchens leaves a huge hole to fill for the Cowboys this offseason, and with Dallas low on money at the present time, it appears they will have to address the void in the upcoming draft.

He showed glimpses of star potential in his first two seasons, totaling 125 catches for 2,029 yards and 15 touchdowns in 29 games, but a broken bone in his foot eventually forced him to miss the first eight games of the 2016 season, prompting the Bills to decline their fifth-year option.
