he more or less retired to try and get himself a better deal from san francisco, because he apparently can't get along with yet another coach who he wins games with.

man fuck tom brady.

His contract remains as it was, he plays for that deal.

Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins. Waddle, Hill, Parker, Gesicki with Mostert and Edmonds at RB.



Pressure is on for Tua with some outstanding players around him.

It's a pretty good trade for Miami in terms of not giving up *that* much for such a talented player. They have two first round picks in the 2023 draft.

I almost forgot they signed Connor Williams and Terron Armstead for the O-Line as well. Armstead is injury prone, but even if he plays 12 games, that's 12 games they have someone better than anyone they had in recent memory. Hopefully Mostert manages to stay healthy as well.

Miami gave up very little… it was probably writing on the wall for KC that they couldn’t afford him or he didn’t want to sign there. I was fearful that Miami was going to swap receivers and we’d be the laughing stock like the Browns for acquiring Watson.

This puts immediate pressure on McDaniel to make the playoffs and win - which is interesting for a rookie coach. The playoff win drought needs to end or the season will be a failure after all these moves. He's inheriting a team that had back-to-back winning seasons (yet missed the playoffs in a stacked AFC) and obviously improved their roster to what might be the fastest team in NFL history. They swept the Patriots yet finished a game behind them. It'll be an interesting season.

The NFC should donate two playoff spots to the AFC haha. I mean besides the Texans and Jets - who is weak? The Jaguars are probably mediocre but they should be better. Steelers should take a step back. Raiders probably as well? Patriots are a mystery but they're well coached - they haven't replaced JC Jackson.

Say that out loud...5 draft picks for a wide receiver. Including a first and a second.

My impression has been that Hill's not replaceable. That's a huge loss for an offense so dependent on big plays and quick strikes.

Agreed. He is one of a kind. It could be that KC is selling high on a guy who relies so much on his speed and agility and is now 28. It’s possible that they sold right before he starts to regress.

But I would imagine he probably just was ready to go elsewhere for that money.

they're betting that Mahomes is more important than HIll.

it'll absolutely hurt in the short term - but makes sense in the long term. wide outs flame out quickly, sometimes when you're least expecting it. to get that much of a haul for him while also saving a shit ton of money?

only reason why it's a little confusing is that they are still very much in a contention window - but i guess they are banking on that window being able to reopen quite quickly with Mahomes back there.

travis kelce about to have 200 catches tho

I think JuJu is going to thrive there as well.

I really hope the dolphins aren’t seriously considering trading Devante Parker. Seriously diminishes the value of the Hill trade if you trade him… Parker is very underrated because he hasn’t had a QB to throw to him, but if he’s retained he easily becomes the Higgins to your Chase and Boyd.

i don't actually care - i just object (strongly) to the notion that not getting a possession is "unfair. "
