The Miami Dolphins have been trying to get themselves into contenders’ status for quite some time now. While people will no doubt debate if 2022 is the time for them to truly contend or not, they are giving the appearance that they are going to give it everything they have. Wednesday saw them make a big move to acquire wide receiver Tyreek Hill from the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for five draft picks, including a first and second-round selection for this year’s upcoming draft.
According to sources, Hill, who made 111 catches for a total of 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns in 2021, was also being sought after by the New York Jets prior to landing in South Beach. In other news, sources have indicated that the Cleveland Browns, who recently acquired quarterback Deshaun Watson, will not be looking to land a first-round pick in a deal to move QB Baker Mayfield out of town. Mayfield is a former #1 pick himself, but he hasn’t lived up to the potential thus far. His list of potential landing spots has seemingly gotten shorter of late as well, so if the Browns want to offload him they will likely need to lower the asking price. The Lions and the Seahawks are said to be in the mix, but neither of them, reportedly, would get any help from Cleveland to pay his salary, further entangling the messy web.
