Watson joined the Chiefs last season on a one-year contract and made a splash with the team at camp and in the preseason. However, he ended the season with only 15 catches but with 21 yards per catch. Watson scored two touchdowns for the Chiefs.
It’s a signing that brings a familiar face back to the receiver room that recently lost Mecole Hardman and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
ESPN NFL reporter Jeremy Fowler said Watson’s new deal is worth $3.5 million with $1.4 million guaranteed and $2.5 million in incentives that could grow to a $6 million total.
