KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs and wide receiver Sammy Watkins have agreed on a restructured one-year contract that gives the franchise much-needed salary cap relief.

That’s according to a person familiar with the deal who spoke with The Associated Press on Friday.

The person said Watkins will make $9 million in base salary but that incentives could drive the total package to $16 million.

More important for the club, the deal will give the Chiefs about $5 million in salary cap savings ahead of the NFL draft.
