Rams news: Sammy Watkins getting more comfortable with Rams

Post

It has been more nearly two weeks since the Los Angeles Rams acquired veteran wide receiver Sammy Watkins from the Buffalo Bills,Womens J.J. Watt Jersey, and things have continued to be a smooth transition.

The 24-year-old has already taken the field for his first game with the team this past weekend with two catches on three targets for eight yards on Saturday night in the 24-21 win over the Oakland Raiders, which he stated on Monday that he felt comfortable in his limited action.

 ‘Oh, you kind of run to the line thinking like, and just playing more.”, what do I have?’. So I couldn’t really play fast as I wanted to, but at the same time,“I was definitely comfortable, but that just comes with reps and having more time with the QB, with the offense

In the game, Watkins had an opportunity to make his first touchdown grab an accurately thrown ball from second-year quarterback Jared Goff that he credited the drop to working his way into the fold.

“Jared (Goff) threw a great ball. I just dropped it," Watkins said. "You’re kind of rusty your first game back, second game back. On those things during the regular season, but that’s just football,Womens Noah Spence Jersey, you start to make those plays.”

In line with that, Watkins also voiced that he is beginning to build a strong bond with Goff that he believes can continue to grow through the more repetitions that the two get on the practice field.

I think the more reps you get with him, just look the safety off and throw you the ball, because he depends on you to be at the right spot. So

The fourth-year wideout expected to take up a prominent role in the passing game as the top receiving threat for Goff given his resume racking up 153 catches for 2,459 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns. It's an adjustment period that head coach Sean McVay is confident that Watkins can adapt to his new surroundings.

"I think once you just get more and more familiar with kind of how we want to operate, that identity, ,Authentic Noah Spence Jersey,those different things," McVay said. "I’ve been really pleased with Sammy up until this point and he did a good job today making a handful of plays and we anticipate him being a big contributor to what we hope to do offensively.”, what our core plays are, it will allow him to understand his role within the framework of some of those plays that come up over and over again and then the compliments that come off of what we’re doing in the pass game or the run game
