Watkins signed a three-year deal worth $48 million ($30 million guaranteed) while Hitchens' deal is worth $9 million per year. Expectations have been high for the former Tigers star, considering Buffalo gave up future first-and fourth-round picks to trade up five positions to draft him with the No. 4 overall pick in 2014.
The Packers are also reportedly interested in receiver Allen Robinson and tight end Jimmy Graham, a clear sign that general manager Brian Gutekunst wants to upgrade his passing game with proven, veteran talent in free agency.
Watkins is coming off a 2017 season with the Rams in which he had 39 catches for 593 yards and eight touchdowns in a supporting role. By bringing in Watkins, however, it now provides second-year gunslinger Patrick Mahomes a bigger target on the outside to work with alongside Tyreek Hill.
The Los Angeles Rams want to keep Sammy Watkins, but that's not going to happen.
He has a career 192 receptions for more than 3,000 yards.
Hitchens had 84 tackles and a forced fumble last season in Dallas and helps fill the void left by Derrick Johnson, who was released by the Chiefs earlier this offseason.
