The Kansas City Chiefs have traded wide receiver Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins. In exchange, the Chiefs have received five draft picks.
The package includes 2022 first-round, second-round, and fourth-round draft picks. The final two picks are 2023 fourth and sixth-round draft picks.
Following the trade, Hill has agreed to a four-year, $120 million extension. He is now the highest-paid wide receiver in NFL history.
His agreement comes on the heels of the Las Vegas Raiders agreeing to make Davante Adams the highest-paid receiver at the time. Adams agreed to a five-year, $141.25 million deal.
Adams has an annual average salary of $28.25 million. Hill is the new leader of the pack with an annual average salary of $30 million.
The Chiefs had been talking to Hill’s reps about a contract extension for months. However, the two sides could not reach an agreement.
Then when Adams was traded to the Raiders, Hill and his reps tried to get a number in the ballpark of the new Raiders star. That did not happen and that led to the trade today.
It was either the New York Jets or the Dolphins for Hill.
Hill instantly becomes the Dolphins No. 1 received with this move. Plus, it gives Tua Tagovailoa a speed option to bust through defenses or go long for the deep option.
This comes on the heels of the Dolphins signing free agent tackle Terron Armstead on Tuesday. He signed a five-year, $75 million deal.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
