In this edition of the NFL is total insanity, Tyreek Hill has been traded to the Dolphins for FIVE draft picks:
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.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 23, 2022
Hill is getting PAID, too:

Why would the Chiefs trade him? I don’t know. And this is the second stud receiver leaving a bona fide elite QB for one that is probably lesser (Davante Adams leaving Green Bay for the Raiders being the other). Add it all up though, and the new digs aren’t enough to bump Hill out of the position’s elite. Expect to pay a premium for his services again in 2022.
