The Bears and Packers are pursuing both Allen Robinson and Sammy Watkins, according to National Football League insider Ian Rapoport.
The 24-year-old Watkins had 39 catches for 593 yards and eight touchdowns last season for the Los Angeles Rams after he was traded by the Buffalo Bills last August. He starred at Clemson, and the Bills gave up future first- and fourth-round picks in order to move up five spots and draft Watkins in 2014.
With the addition of Watkins, the Chiefs have now given second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes a handful of unsafe weapons to work with.

Patrick Mahomes is taking over an offense that already had plenty of firepower, but the Kansas City Chiefs added another weapon Tuesday.
Free agency officially begins on Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, but beginning at noon on Monday, teams can begin negotiating contracts with unrestricted free agents. Those numbers don't jump off the page, but Watkins didn't take on the role of No. 1 receiver in L.A. He had a knack for finding the end zone, however, catching eight touchdowns. They're loading up for a new quarterback to start.
The AFC West might be more wide open than we've seen it in a while, but the Chiefs are not engaging in some rebuild this offseason.
