Receivers all the time need the ball.
So it is comprehensible Sammy Watkins can be displeased about his position with the Los Angeles Rams’ offense as of late, because the 24-yr-previous has solely totaled one catch over his previous two video games.
“As a participant, in fact you are going to be annoyed,” Watkins advised Wealthy Hammond of the Los Angeles Every day Information. “I do not know a participant, a large receiver, that is not annoyed all through the sport in case you’re not getting the ball. Every week, it might change. That they had sure protection that sort of took me out of the sport, and that is a part of the sport.”
Watkins broke out towards the San Francisco 49ers three weeks in the past with a pair of touchdowns and greater than one hundred yards receiving, however since then he is been nearly non-existent within the offense. Final Sunday towards the Seattle Seahawks he was held and not using a catch for the primary time in his profession.
“Undoubtedly need to attempt to get him extra concerned,” Rams quarterback Jared Goff stated. “However under no circumstances are we, or am I, going to vary the strategy, play in and play out. I am going to undergo the reads and hopefully he will get extra touches.”
To Watkins’ credit score, he hasn’t let his frustration turn out to be a distraction to the workforce and is not involved about his numbers this season impacting his subsequent contract. He is glad to be with a Rams squad that seems to be on the rise.
“I feel I’ve acquired sufficient cash,” Watkins stated. “I simply need to have enjoyable and ball. I need to be part of this staff. It is an excellent staff. I do know the place they’re about to be at (when it comes to success). I simply need to be part of it and make performs and rating touchdowns.”
