Former Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins is one of the top offensive players in Clemson history with his dazzling speed and precise route-running during his collegiate years in Tiger Town.
Watkins is now playing with the Los Angeles Rams this season and made national headlines this week when he said that he thought the world is flat according to a locker room interview with Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry.
Thiry asked him several times about his opinion before she reported it and Watkins held on to his flat-earth theories. Several professional athletes have supported the flat-earth theories lately include NBA star Kyrie Irving and former NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal.
Back to football, Watkins has caught all seven targets for 88 yards this season. Watkins and the Rams will be showcased tonight against the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football.
For his NFL career, he has 160 receptions for 2,547 yards and 17 scores.
