HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WLOX) - Quez Watkins' signature looks pretty good after signing his rookie contract with the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday.
Philly lock in the former Southern Miss receiver for four years after selecting Watkins in the sixth round of this year’s NFL Virtual Draft and the deal is projected to be worth nearly 3.5 million with a signing bonus between $161K and $169K. Philadelphia was impressed with Watkins for not only his collegiate resume, but his speed as he ran the second fastest time for wide receivers at the NFL Scouting Combine in 4.35 seconds.
Watkins was a two-time, first-team All-Conference USA selection while in Hattiesburg.
