Watkins wishing he didn’t have to miss OTAs

Posted by Chris Brown on May 28, 2014 – 2:42 pm

As encouraging as Sammy Watkins play was in his first day on the field in Buffalo’s offense, he’s unfortunately going to miss the next two days of organized team activities due to the NFLPA Rookie Premiere in Los Angeles, which mandates the attendance of the top players in the draft class. If Watkins had his way he’d be staying in Orchard Park the rest of the week.

“I would rather stay here and get the connection with the quarterback,” Watkins said. “I don’t want to fall behind. It’s a long season so I need to be prepared to be ready for the first game. It’s kind of sad that I have to leave for three or four days and everybody will have that two or three days ahead of me. So I really have to go down to the rookie premiere and study the plays and actually get out there running and train a little bit and not get behind too far.”

The three-day event is hosted by NFL Players Inc., the marketing and licensing arm of the NFLPA. EJ Manuel and Robert Woods attended the event last year. Here’s a list of the rookies attending this year.
