ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Bills signed first-round pick Sammy Watkins to his rookie contract Wednesday.
The Bills announced the signing shortly after the team's first session of organized team activities.
Buffalo moved up five spots in the draft in a trade with Cleveland to select Clemson's Watkins fourth overall. The 6-foot-1, 211-pound wideout is known for his explosive playmaking abilities and his speed and good hands.
Buffalo is counting on Watkins to immediately step into the starting lineup for a team that has not been to the playoffs since 1999, the NFL's longest current drought.
