On Wednesday, Miami acquired Tyreek Hill from the Chiefs in a blockbuster deal. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the deal will send five draft picks, including a 2022 first-round pick, from the Dolphins to the Chiefs in exchange for Hill.
Chiefs are trading six-time Pro-Bowl WR Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins for five draft picks: a 2022 1st-round pick (No. 29), a 2nd-round pick (No. 50) and a 4th-round pick, as well as 4th- and 6th-round picks in the 2023 draft, sources tell ESPN.

Hill, 28, is one of the NFL’s fastest receivers and has posted at least 1,183 receiving yards in four of the last five seasons. He made a Pro Bowl in each of his first six seasons in Kansas City and was named an AP All-Pro first-teamer three times — twice as a receiver and once as a return man.
As good as Hill was for the Chiefs, they elected to trade him rather than sign him to an extension. Now, Hill will go from playing alongside Patrick Mahomes to playing alongside Tua Tagovailoa while Kansas City will look for a way to replace their best deep threat.
Who won the Tyreek Hill trade? The Dolphins seem to have gotten the better of the Chiefs, but both sides of the deal come with plenty of risk.
