The Dolphins waived Allen Hurns.
Hurns missed all of last season while on injured reserve due to a wrist injury, and he’s being waived with a failed-physical designation. The veteran receiver has missed two consecutive seasons (opting out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19), but he should draw interest around the league when he’s fully healthy.
The Texans are signing Andy Janovich.
Janovich finds a landing spot after being let go of by the Browns. The veteran fullback will help pave the way for Texans runners this season, but he’s not likely to become a recommended fantasy option.
The Chiefs are trading Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins.
Just shortly after news broke that Kansas City’s star wideout had requested a trade, he’s being sent to Miami for a first-round pick (No. 29 overall), second-round pick, and fourth-round pick this year in addition to a fourth-round pick and sixth-round pick in 2023. It’s a massive haul for the Chiefs considering what Davante Adams just went for, and Hill will reportedly be topping Adams for the largest contract for a wideout in NFL history (four years, $120 million). At first glance, there will be concerns about the Chiefs—and Patrick Mahomes—remaining as high-powered without Hill, but they still have Mecole Hardman to stretch the field, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them make a move for Alabama prospect Jameson Williams in next month’s draft. For the Miami side of things, the duo of Hill and Jaylen Waddle will arguably be the fastest in league history, and it’s a massive boost to the outlook of Tua Tagovailoa from both a real-life and fantasy perspective. We’d say this is a slight ding to Hill’s fantasy upside, though it will be interesting to see how Mike McDaniel schemes the offense up with how much speed they have.
Tyreek Hill has been given permission to seek a trade.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero report that extension talks between Hill and the Chiefs have “stalled”, and Hill has now been given permission to seek a trade. The fact that Kansas City is giving Hill permission to seek a trade indicates they have no problem trading him away, and multiple teams are reportedly interested. We’d say there’s a decent chance something happens, as Andy Reid’s offense should be fine even without one of the NFL’s most dynamic weapons in the mix. We’ll see how this turns out, but we’d think something would happen before the draft if a trade does go down.
Demarcus Robinson is signing with the Raiders.
Robinson is heading from Kansas City to Las Vegas, and he could have a similar role as the likely No. 4 wideout behind Davante Adams, Hunter Renfrow, and Bryan Edwards. The best game of Robinson’s career notably came against the Raiders a couple of years ago with 172 yards and two touchdowns on six receptions, and maybe he’ll have a similar outburst with his new team at some point.
The Chiefs are signing Corey Coleman.
The 2016 first-round pick by the Browns was out of the league last year, but he most recently spent 2018-2020 with the Giants—but due to injury, he hasn’t played in a game since 2018. Still, the Baylor product is just 27 years old and is an interesting addition for the Chiefs. Coleman’s explosiveness helped make him a first-round pick when he left school, and we’ll see if he can stage a comeback and make an impact in Kansas City.
The Vikings are re-signing Sean Mannion.
Mannion is returning on a one-year deal, and it will be interesting to see what this means for 2021 third-round pick Kellen Mond under a new regime. If they only keep two quarterbacks, Mannion could be the favorite to stay behind Kirk Cousins as the No. 2, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Mond was a potential trade candidate for teams looking for a developmental option at the position.
