After seeing the deal Davante Adams signed, Hill made a plea to the Kansas City Chiefs that he’d like to be the highest-paid wideout.
That did not happen and he was allowed to seek a trade.
In the end, the Dolphins acquired Hill but for a steep price.
For starters, they gave him a four-year, $120 million contract.
Miami also gave Kansas City five draft picks.
The Chiefs received the Dolphins’ first, second and fourth-round picks in 2022, plus another fourth-rounder and a sixth-rounder in 2023.
Those additional selections tie the Super Bowl LIV champions with the Jacksonville Jaguars as the team with the most picks in the 2022 draft.
But while Hill’s former team will be busy on draft night, the Dolphins’ job was cut short.
That said, ESPN’s Marcel Louis-Jacques shared what Dolphins general manager Chris Grier will do on day one.
Grier on what the Dolphins will do during day one of the Draft: "We'll just watch Tyreek highlights."

As of writing, they only have four picks left in the upcoming draft, and none of them were initially theirs.
Dolphins Fans Might As Well Skip The Draft
The Dolphins won’t pick until the third round with a pick they got from the San Francisco 49ers.
San Francisco got that pick when Robert Saleh became the New York Jets head coach, and Martin Mayhew became the Washington Commanders’ general manager.
Their next pick will be in round four which they received via a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Finally, they have two seventh-round picks courtesy of the Baltimore Ravens and the Tennessee Titans.
Miami could not care less about the scarcity of picks because they have a promising team.
