Chiefs trade Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins

First Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers lost his number one target (Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders), and now you can add Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs to the list. On Wednesday, the Chiefs made a stunning trade as they dealt their star wideout Tyreek Hill of Douglas, Georgia to the Miami Dolphins for five draft picks according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The draft picks are the first round pick in 2022, the second round pick in 2022, two fourth round draft picks in 2023, and a sixth round draft pick in 2023.

In 2021, Hill had a career-high 111 catches for 1239 yards, and nine touchdowns. In his career, he has 479 catches for 6630 yards and 56 touchdowns. Hill’s most famous game came on November 29, 2020 in a 27-24 Chiefs win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Hill had 13 catches for 269 yards and three touchdowns. The 269 receiving yards were the 14th most receiving yards by a National Football League player in one game. It was also the second most receiving yards by a Chiefs wide receiver in franchise history. Stephone Paige had 309 yards in a 38-34 Chiefs win over the San Diego Chargers on December 22, 1985.



In addition to losing Hill via a trade, Kansas City lost wide receiver Byron Pringle to the Chicago Bears in free agency. This past season for the Chiefs, Pringle had 42 catches for 568 yards, and five touchdowns. Pringle signed a one-year deal worth $6 million.

To replace Hill and Pringle, the Chiefs have signed JuJu Smith-Schuster to a one-year deal worth $10.75 million, and Corey Coleman. Smith-Schuster had only 15 catches for 129 yards last season for the Pittsburgh Steelers, while Coleman has not played in the NFL since being with the New York Giants in 2018.
