According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Chiefs will ink Watkins to a three-year deal worth $16 million per year and $30 million guaranteed.

Patrick Mahomes is taking over an offense that already had plenty of firepower, but the Kansas City Chiefs added another weapon Tuesday.

The No. 4 overall pick in the 2014 draft, Watkins spent the first three seasons of his career in Buffalo before being traded to the Los Angeles Rams past year.

Both franchises are looking to upgrade their roster in free agency, and they're competing head-to-head for arguably the two top receivers on the open market.

Last season running back Kareem Hunt (1,782 total yards, 11 touchdowns), tight end Travis Kelce (1,038 yards, eight touchdowns) and wide receiver Tyreek Hill (1,183 yards, seven touchdowns) were all named to the Pro Bowl.

Watkins was initially drafted by the Bills sixth overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, in a questionable deal that cost Buffalo two first-round picks with a trade up, but was traded last offseason to the Rams for a second-round pick.

He has a career 192 receptions for more than 3,000 yards.

The Kansas City Star reported that Dallas, Jacksonville and Chicago were among the teams also pursuing Watkins.

Kansas City intends to turn its starting quarterback job over to Patrick Mahomes II, whom former general manager John Dorsey traded up to select 10th overall previous year.
