Which new NFL wide receiver deals are most likely to fail? | Locked On NFL

We’ve seen some crazy movement in the wide receiver market this offseason with mega trades and new deals. But which deals are doomed to fail?

MIAMI — We’ve seen crazy moves around the league for top NFL wide receivers this offseason. The first big one was Packers All-Pro receiver Davante Adams, who was traded to Las Vegas for a new $28 million-a-year deal.

Then we had the big draft day shocker when the Titans traded AJ Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles for a first-round pick and then signed the 24-year-old to $25 million a year.

The Chiefs followed with a blockbuster trade that sent star receiver Tyreek Hill to Miami, where he signed a new $30 million-a-year contract, making him the highest-paid receiver in the NFL.

Then this week, Rams star receiver Cooper Kupp signed a new $110 million deal that pays him $26.1 million a year.

These four receivers are all top 10, if not top 3, receivers in the NFL, Adams and Kupp especially. But which of these deals will most likely end up costing the team more than they’re worth?

That was the topic of discussion on Thursday’s Locked On NFL podcast. Hosts Tyler Rowland and Alex Clancy each gave up their deal most likely to fail with those recipients.

Rowland: Tyreek Hill, Miami Dolphins, 4 years, $120 million

“I don’t believe in Tua Tagovailoa, I never did, I won’t until I see him go out there and do it, win a playoff game and play well,” Rowland said. “I think the obvious thing is Tyreek Hill, could be a bust in Miami, not because Tyreek Hill isn’t good, not because he doesn’t make the money. But because I don’t trust the quarterback, I don’t trust the offensive line, I don’t trust the running game, and I don’t know what I’m going to get from a freshman head coach.

Clancy: AJ Brown, Philadelphia Eagles, 4 years, $100 million

“This is easy for me and it’s AJ Brown. I know the numbers are there. He hasn’t played a full season since his rookie year. He averaged about 1,000 yards a year. The touchdown numbers are there. You don’t trust Tua, I don’t trust Jalen Hurts. I don’t necessarily have to trust Jalen Hurts because Philly is built on that backfield…they trade for AJ Brown and genuinely believe Jalen Hurts is the one. I think that’s going to be the one where that’s a lot of cheese, man, to give to AJ Brown, who wasn’t healthy… I hope Jalen’s pain takes a step up, but I just don’t think it’s going to work Philadelphia .”
