A.J. Brown, Marquise Brown trades are sign of the times as WR salaries are skyrocketing
There's a storm ahead and Day 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft is only a fraction of what's to come. Tonight showed that the wide receiver market has become so inflated that teams prefer to take risks with unproven young rookies over proven Pro Bowl-caliber veterans.
This is what Davante Adams, Tyreek Hill and especially Christian Kirk did. They've made teams unable to pay receivers what they're worth on the market and it's going to force several top receivers to air their displeasure and potentially sit out the season pending an overtime the team doesn't want. . give them.
It was a big night for pass catchers as a record six wide receivers were taken in the top 20 picks (18 in fact).

In tonight's draft, two top receivers (like their former teams' No. 1 receiver) were traded just a year before their rookie contracts expired. These are guys who were about to get paid, but their old teams wouldn't pay them. We're going to see a lot more of that in the near future. I promise you, and it will be interesting to see how the wide receiver free agent market responds. For now, let's review these day trade projects.
Note:- get more information Wide receivers are flying off draft boards and to new teams.
Rumors swirled that Brown was unhappy with Tennessee and wanted a Davante Adams/Tyreek Hill-style extension completed before the start of the season. Although Brown never officially requested a trade like fellow 2019 second-round draft pick Deebo Samuel, it was up in the air whether or not Brown would show up for the team's training camp without a agreement is reached.
With the 18th pick, the Titans drafted a replacement for Brown in Arkansas wide receiver Treylon Burks. Combined with new receiver Robert Woods, the pair are theoretically just a younger, cheaper version of the Titans' aerial offense last year. While Woods isn't as talented as Brown and is coming off a torn ACL and Burks isn't proven in the NFL, it's possible the Titans' wide receiver corps is one of the most versatile. and explosives from the AFC. From what we've seen in 2021, Ryan Tannehill needs effective weapons to lead the Titans offense. It will take a lot of work for Tannehill to develop new bonds with Woods and Burks, but given the lackluster receiving corps found elsewhere in the AFC South, it shouldn't take long for Woods and Burks to establish themselves as first body. of the division.
Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals
In another Draft Day move involving someone named Brown, the Baltimore Ravens were working on a deal that would send their former first-round pick Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown and the 100th overall pick heading to Arizona for the 23rd choice.
According to Ian Rapaport, this decision has been a long time in coming for the Cardinals. General manager Steve Keim said after the deal was struck that he was very fond of Brown out of college while the team was looking for Kyler Murray. This trade was somewhat expected. Brown had not been seen practicing with other Ravens receivers or his quarterback Lamar Jackson during the offseason. Also, with Murray reportedly unhappy with the team currently, a reunion with his former top option in Oklahoma could be a smart move on the Cardinals' part. The team clearly wants to move forward with Murray going forward, and getting Murray comfortable in Arizona will make it all the more likely that the extension talks will go smoothly.
