Bills decline Sammy Watkins' fifth-year option

Vincent Carchietta / USATODAY

The Buffalo Bills have informed former Clemson WR Sammy Watkins that they will not be picking up his fifth-year option. Instead, the Bill will let Watkins test free agency in 2018 rather than exercising the $13.3 million injury guarantee that comes with his option. Watkins played in just eight games in 2016 after missing three in 2015.

Only 8 of the 32 2014 first round picks have not had their option exercised yet or have been declined.

It's not all bad news for Watkins. If he has a great 2017 season, he could cash in on a big free agent contract a year earlier.
