Sammy Watkins wants to remain with the Kansas City Chiefs.
"Very important to stay," Watkins said. "For what we did in winning the Super Bowl and the type of team and coaches we have, the organization, why wouldn't I stay? I'm a guy that's been in the league going on seven years, and I've been on teams that were not so good and were not winning.
"We've got a well-established quarterback, a well-established team, coaches, organization. The real fun is in the winning more than anything."
The wide receiver agreed to a restructured deal that will pay him $9 million, down from an original $14 million.
"I think I've made enough money," Watkins said. "I'd love more money, but as far as being smart and [staying] on this team, knowing you've got to pay Pat [Mahomes], you've got to pay Chris [Jones], there's a lot of guys you've got to pay. So for me to take a contract like I did was a blessing. ... This is my happy place, so why not take a smaller contract and come out and play with the guys I've been playing with?"
