One of the newest Bills took time to check in on a franchise legend.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins made a trip to visit former Bills quarterback and Hall of Famer Jim Kelly at the hospital on Tuesday.

Watkins is pictured on the far right, with Chad Kelly, former Clemson cornerback and current Bills player Darius Robinson, and Jim Kelly from left to right.

The Buffalo Bills first round pick of in the 2014 NFL Draft was teammates with Chad Kelly (Jim's nephew) when Kelly was on the Clemson football team. The Bills' legend Jim Kelly has been dealing with sinus cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy in hopes of putting the illness in remission.

Watkins says Kelly was in good spirits, something that appears to be confirmed by this story of Kelly sharing a dance with his wife, Jill, this Mother's Day, per the New York Daily News.

"He was laughing, joking around with us," he said. "It was great. He’s a great man."
