Sammy Watkins, wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, talked about battling depression, abusing alcohol and the world going through a dark period during a recently published interview with Bleacher Report.
Watkins had surgery during the 2017 offseason, at a time when he felt “lost” in life.
Watkins was later asked if the virus were linked to his dark ages theory in any way, and he said there’s a “New world order” coming.
“I don’t think the world knows what athletes go through off the field,” Watkins stated.
Watkins won a Super Bowl as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs last season after being traded in 2018 from the Los Angeles Rams.
