One of the biggest stories of the 2022 offseason: The bizarre twists and turns of the wide receiver market. After seeing Christian Kirk (among others) get unexpectedly paid, and teams dole out draft capital and big-money contracts for Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill, it’s time for the star wideouts of the 2019 draft to get theirs.
That starts with Deebo Samuel, who made a shocking trade demand for reasons that remain a mystery. The questions: Will other, inferior coaching staffs be able to maximize his unique talents in the same way that the 49ers did? And will potential suitors worry about the wear and tear for a receiver who takes punishment similar to a lot of running backs?
Plus, a discussion of fellow ’19 Day 2 picks A.J. Brown, Terry McLaurin and DK Metcalf. Then, a look at the back seven defenders of the NFL draft. And the story of Conor Orr: Ice Enthusiast.
