OK, it's only a Herb rumor so far:[url=http://communities.canada.com/MONTREALGAZETTE/blogs/thesnap/archive/2008/04/08/watkins-on-trade-block.aspx]http://communities.canada.com/MONTREALG ... block.aspx[/url]
But still, why would the Als even consider trading Watkins? He is a proven receiver. He can even be a deep threat in a decent offensive system. He is still young, and he will be a great receiver for at least 5 years (maybe more). He is also a classy individual.
Last season I saw a glimpse of what kind of man Kerry Watkins is. RDS films most, if not all of the Al's practices. During a practice, Chip Cox called Kerry out; he told Kerry, "catch the ball Nword" Cox repeated the phrase 2 or 3 times. I hate it when people use that word. Even if they are black. Anyway, Kerry took the high road. he said nothing, and did nothing. All the while, Cox kept calling him a "n".
The next game, Watkins got over 170 receiving yards...
I like Kerry. he is a great player, and a great man. He is a silent leader. A guy who leads by example.
