Sammy Watkins Says He's 'Frustrated' by Role in Rams Offense

No ego, no demands, no lashing out.

Anyone who's watched the Los Angeles Rams play this season can see that Sammy Watkins hasn't exactly been a focal point of the offense. But Watkins said he's not had trouble staying engaged in games.

"Two years ago, it would've probably been different", Watkins said.

That could be a long-term problem.

After the game, Watkins thought he had been open regularly against Seattle.

Watkins took to social media that evening and posted some mild comments, but ones that clearly indicated he was displeased with his role.

Rams quarterback Jared Goff said he wants to get Watkins more involved on offense but it depends on the reads and the coverage every game.

"I don't know a wide receiver that's not frustrated throughout the game if you're not getting the ball, but that's the game", Watkins told reporters this week. "I don't know a player or a wide receiver that's not frustrated throughout the game if you're not getting the ball". Each week, it could change. They had certain coverages that kind of took me away and that's part of the game.

Watkins was targeted on only four of Goff's 47 pass attempts against Seattle. In his career, Watkins caught 67 passes for 2,670 yards and 19 touchdowns.

"Sammy is a player that wants to be involved", McVay said, via the Associated Press. The receiver insists he's more interested in the numbers in the Rams' win column. This season, Cooper caught just 13 of 33 targets this season for 118 yards and a touchdown. "I'm happy, I'm healthy, and my goal is just to put everything on film and just continue to stack up wins and win games".

But Bilic is having none of it. 'You don't appreciate him, ' Bilic said of his Manchester City loanee. The guy is brilliant. "He is a great professional and very interested in the squad".

On a personal level, Watkins' frustration could be understandable. That's a tiny number for a playmaking receiver expecting to put up significant stats in the final year of his rookie contract.

"I think I've got enough money", Watkins said, smiling. "I mean the linemen just sit there and block, so they're not getting the ball", Watkins said.

"I think Sammy is a really important part of our offense", Goff said. It's a great team. But they needed an outside vertical threat for a pass-catching unit devoid of players who can consistently beat defenses over the top.

This week, it's Jacksonville, which leads the National Football League in interceptions and arguably has a better secondary than the Seattle group the Rams just faced.

"Those guys are great players, but leave no doubt, we've got a great room", Watkins said. And that's more likely the direction that we'll go. We're going to be open. "So for me it's just to continue to go out there, play hard. And hopefully me and Jared will start clicking".

NOTES: Pharoh Cooper will replace Tavon Austin as the Rams' punt returner after Austin's two-fumble misadventures against Seattle. And while Cooper Kupp seemed like a possibility since he has some experience in the department, McVay's decision for Cooper seems like the right choice.
