The Miami Dolphins restocked their firepower at wide receiver in a little over two weeks.
The Dolphins also made Hill the highest-paid wideout in the NFL with a four-year, $120 million deal.
Since they have no vacancy at wide receiver, the Dolphins traded away DeVante Parker.
Typically, teams wouldn’t want to give their former player to a division rival because they might be pumped up for revenge games.
They would circle the dates for those games and ramp up their preparations to prove their previous team wrong.
However, the Dolphins traded Parker to the New England Patriots, which Pro Football Network founder Matt Cannata pointed out.
Dolphins trading DeVante Parker within the division says a lot of what they think of him.

Cannata said, “Dolphins trading DeVante Parker within the decision says a lot of what they think of him.”
Unfortunately, the Patriots might not be getting much of an upgrade with Parker.
The former first-round pick from Louisville had 515 yards and two touchdowns last season.
It was evident, though, that Waddle took the spotlight from him.
Patriots Still Need More At Wide Receiver
Even with Parker’s addition, New England’s rotation at wide receiver is still suspect.
Sadly, that’s a trio that does not invoke much fear upon opposing defensive backs.
On paper, the Dolphins surpassed the Patriots thanks to their moves this offseason.
However, the application is different from the theory, and new head coach Mike McDaniel still has to outwit Bill Belichick in an actual game.
