Bills decline to pick up 5th-year option on Sammy Watkins

It was a decision in which Buffalo took all the time they were allotted, but just hours before the league deadline the Bills declined to pick up the fifth-year option on the rookie contract of Sammy Watkins.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott explained the decision in a team statement.

“Sammy and I have had good conversations about this decision,” McDermott said. “There is no question that Sammy is a very good football player and has worked very hard during his rehab this offseason. We look forward to seeing a healthy Sammy Watkins on the field in 2017.”
