After announcing he’ll help at the Jim Kelly Football Camp in July, Sammy Watkins spoke about his quickly-formed relationship with Kelly after meeting him in the hospital earlier this week.

He’s only been a Buffalo Bill for just over a week, but he says he can already tell what Kelly means to the Bills organization and to the city of Buffalo.

“He means a lot. I see that he’s everywhere around here,” Watkins said. “Everybody represents him and he represents the program well. He’s the quarterback of this franchise. He took this team and this franchise to the championship a couple of times. Even though they didn’t win it, he took them there and that’s the biggest point of being a Buffalo Bill.

He added that he’s happy to have formed the bond with Jim through Jim’s nephew and Watkins’ Clemson teammate Chad Kelly, and that he has plenty of time to build on that bond.

“I talked to him when I was there and he just gave me a lot of wisdom and encouragement of being a Buffalo and all the perks of being a Buffalo Bill and I can’t thank him enough.”
