The Bills first-round pick in the 2014 Draft, wide receiver Sammy Watkins, has quickly assimilated to Buffalo and has already formed a bond with Hall of Famer Jim Kelly.
He visited Kelly in the hospital on the night before his first practice as a Bill, joined by former Clemson teammates Chad Kelly, Jim's nephew, and Darius Robinson, a fellow Bills rookie.
"Jim is a great guy. It was a great experience," Watkins said. "He's a strong guy. A guy that's fighting every day. A guy that's positive, not negative. You hear a lot of things in the media that he might be doing bad or looks bad but he looks great to me."
When Jim asked Watkins to help out at his annual youth football camp, Watkins jumped at the chance. He announced today he'll make an appearance at the Jim Kelly Football Camp, set for July 9-13 at Sweet Home High School in Amherst, NY.
"It's going to be a great experience. I'm going to go to the football camp to help out," he said. "Hopefully [Jim] will be out there ready and prepared."
"Anything for Jim," Watkins added. "He represents this program the way it should be represented and I'd do anything for him."
