The Buffalo Bills have a big decision looming on Sammy Watkins, one that needs to be made by May 2, Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News reports.

"Sammy’s a good football player and I know he’s a good football player," coach Sean McDermott said Thursday after the Bills wrapped up their voluntary veteran minicamp. "The key right now, for Sammy, is that he’s in a good spot. He’s attacking the rehab. We obviously have to continue to evaluate that situation in respect to Sammy’s situation.

"The hardest part about that is, with Sammy’s situation, is there’s not going to be much different physically because of the limitations with the injury for us to evaluate prior to the deadline. That said, we’re still going through that."

McDermott said the Bills are being "very methodical" and making "sure we look at things the right way" in regards to Watkins, who played just eight games last season and needed a second surgery to repair a broken foot in January. He was not on the field Thursday, and his timeline for being back to 100 percent remains unclear.
