Rams Would Make A Huge Mistake By Passing Up Sammy Watkins

I've said it once, I'll say it again. The Rams need to find a way to get their hands on Sammy Watkins. Watkins is a pure receiver, something the Rams desperately need. Tavon Austin is an amazing football player, but the Rams are asking him to be the next Wes Welker, which isn’t going to happen. He's elusive and a great returner, but he's not going to give you a...
