Sammy Watkins has only been a Buffalo Bill since May 8, and if the first week is any indication, he's going to be well-liked by Bills fans. 

One of the first things Watkins did after arriving in Buffalo this week was head to the hospital to meet with Bills legend Jim Kelly, who's in the middle of an ongoing battle with cancer. 

It was a chance for the Bills 2014 first-round pick to meet the team's 1983 first-round pick. Watkins was the fourth overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, while Kelly was the 14th overall pick in the 1983 draft. 

Watkins took the photo at the top of the page and posted it to his Instagram account and wrote, "Pray for uncle Jim great guy it's crazy how strong he is and how he continues to smile and make jokes nice netting him."

The other two people in the photo are Kelly's nephew Chad and former Clemson cornerback Darius Robinson.
