I thought he was targeted four times.


Nope, targeted only 2x***

Maybe. But one of the targets was a pass in his general

direction that went 10 yards out of bounds on a scramble. SW was the guy "in the vicinity" used to prevent an intentional grounding...

And he caught one for 23 yds., mystery why they did not

Honestly, SW should have caught the pass in the end zone

at the end of the game (that they threw to him when the game was already out of reach)...

but he did have a pretty good season and stayed healthy which was nice to see.

Good Luck to Sammy! I was hoping my Redskins would have gone after him in FA but LA is a good spot for him.

It would be cheaper to franchise tag him than to try to resign him before/during free agency.

With the better weather in LA I feel his health will be much better moving forward, and in his first year with Goff they had success and should be able to build on that success moving forward.

A little surprised

They put the franchise tag on Sammy, but whatever...get that cash!!!

Maybe this will lead to more targets coming his way in 2018.

Sammy had a tough break with the botched foot surgery the

first time in Buffalo. I don't believe he's ever fully recovered. I don't see the acceleration and burst that he had at Clemson and even with Buffalo before the injury. In the league even if you lose 5% of your burst and start/stop acceleration it can be very detrimental to a career. Hard to believe he is still only 24 years old.


Happy for you Sammy!***
