Former head coach Jerry Glanville once said that the NFL meant “not for long.”
He is right, especially with all the wide receivers switching teams the past two months.
Typically, NFL teams try their best to retain Pro Bowl or All-Pro wideouts.
But that doesn’t seem to be the case after a very eventful offseason.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter made sure that football fans kept track with all the wide receiver movement.
The most tumultuous WR off-season in NFL history now has resulted in this, so far:
🏈A.J. Brown is an Eagle.
🏈Marquise Brown is a Cardinal.
🏈Tyreek Hill is a Dolphin.
🏈Davante Adams is a Raider.
🏈Allen Robinson is a Ram.
🏈Amari Cooper is a Brown.

Pro Bowl wideout Amari Cooper joined the Cleveland Browns after being traded by the Dallas Cowboys.
With his arrival, the Browns released Jarvis Landry, ensuring he will play for another team in 2022.
However, he’s still a free agent after round one of the 2022 draft.
Robinson’s arrival facilitated Robert Woods‘s trade to the Tennessee Titans.
The Baltimore Ravens traded Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals on draft day.
The Titans also moved A.J. Brown to Philadelphia in exchange for the Eagles’ 18th and 101st overall picks.
He also signed a four-year, $100 million contract, with $57 million guaranteed.
Market-Altering Deals For Hill And Adams
Adams was briefly the NFL’s highest-paid wideout after signing a five-year, $141.25 million deal with the Las Vegas Raiders.
Hill wanted to have a more lucrative deal, but the Kansas City Chiefs refused.
Therefore, the Chiefs traded “Cheetah” to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for five draft picks.
Samuel might also join the wide receivers who switched uniforms after requesting a trade from the San Francisco 49ers.
