Chargers' Jaylen Watkins: Set for MRI Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins (knee) is scheduled for an MRI on Sunday, Jack Wang of The Press-Enterprise reports.

Watkins is battling for snaps with the Chargers, but he'll likely settle for a special teams role if he makes the 53-man roster. A serious injury would derail those plans altogether, though. The results of his evaluation should be available in the next day or two.

Chargers' Jaylen Watkins: Lands deal with Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins signed a one-year contract with the Chargers on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Watkins was used sparingly by the Eagles last season, finishing with 17 tackles as a reserve secondary player. The 25-year-old is expected to provide depth at the safety spot for the Chargers.

Eagles' Jaylen Watkins: Won't be tendered contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles aren't planning to tender a 2018 contract to Watkins, which will make him an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

With Watkins having completed his rookie contract and now heading into his fifth season, the Eagles would have to extend a fourth-round tender in order to retain him, but the organization apparently didn't feel he was worthy of that price tag. The 25-year-old appeared in 28 games over the past two seasons, but saw nearly as many snaps (165) on special teams as he did on defense (168) in 2017. With 2017 second-round defensive back Sidney Jones back to full strength after missing nearly all of his rookie season while recovering from an Achilles injury and top special teamer Chris Maragos (knee) set to return in 2018 after an injury-shortened season, the Eagles are well equipped to compensate for Watkins' departure.

Eagles' Jaylen Watkins: Finishes with 17 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins recorded 17 tackles (16 solo) in 12 games for the Eagles in 2017.

Watkins served as a reserve option in Philadelphia's secondary, and his only significant production came with seven solo tackles in the 6-0 loss to the Cowboys in Week 17. The 26-year-old enters 2018 as a restricted free agent but is far from guaranteed to return to the Eagles.
