While there have been a number of huge trades taken place this NFL offseason, arguably the biggest move came on Wednesday with the Kansas City Chiefs trading superstar wideout Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins.
Ian Rapaport reported that the Chiefs had given Hill’s agent permission to seek a trade as contract talks had stalled between the two. Rapaport’s initial tweet was shared at 11:04 AM EST and Hill was traded to Miami exactly 30 minutes later.
The return is a first-round pick and more, while Hill gets a contract extension that puts him among the highest paid WRs in the NFL.

In exchange for trading the six-time Pro Bowler, Kansas City will receive a 2022 first-round pick, a 2022 second-round pick, a 2022 fourth-round pick on top of a fourth and sixth-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Hill was set to become a free agent following the 2022 season, but has already signed an extension with the Dolphins.
The 28-year-old signed a four-year extension worth $120 million with just over $72 million guaranteed.
The NFL world had quite a reaction to the news of Hill heading to Miami:

Dolphins now have strong argument of having the NFL’s fastest offense with Tyreek Hill & Jaylen Waddle as top receivers, Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert at running back and Mike Gesicki at tight end.
Tua and HC Mike McDaniel is going to have a lot of fun with these playmakers.

Has to be an error. I refuse to believe this. Chiefs got something better in return. https://t.co/DQLgQeR5C3

Not good enough. The Chiefs have the worst roster in the AFC West as it stands. Very scary spot to be in. https://t.co/pDDlCgF1Gp

This is LOW compensation for Tyreek Hill.
Effectively 2 2nd Rd picks and change.
