A 'WRU' member has a new home.

Former Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins is signing a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens worth $6 million including $5 million guaranteed according to multiple reports on Friday night.

"I want to thank the Raven's organization and coaches for the opportunity," Watkins posted on social media. "I cannot wait to get started with the guys this year and will be one to remember for a long time!"

The 27-year-old playmaker should be fun to watch paired with quarterback Lamar Jackson throwing the football to him.

In 2020, Watkins had 37 receptions for 421 yards (11.4 ypc) and two touchdowns. He spent the last three seasons with Kansas City registering 129 catches for 1,613 yards and eight touchdowns.

He was with the Rams in 2017.

For his NFL career, he has 321 catches for 4,665 yards and 33 touchdowns.

He was the fourth overall selection by the Bills in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Clemson.
