Sammy Watkins takes the opportunity with Aaron Rodgers, Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Packers wide receiver Sammy Watkins had a big first day of practice against the New Orleans Saints. That was encouraging. More encouraging is how Watkins has strung together a string of strong days.

“Sammy was a different player,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Wednesday. “He was super reliable and made a bunch of plays every practice. He had a bunch of games again today.”

That’s Watkins’ goal as he tries to resurrect his career. Last year with Baltimore, Watkins had 257 yards through the first four games and 137 yards the rest of the season. In 2019 with Kansas City, Watkins had 198 yards and three touchdowns in the opener, but never reached 65 yards or found the end zone for the rest of the season.
