The 2022 NFL offseason may go down as the year of the trade—or perhaps, the year that sparked a change in how franchises operate. That's especially true at wide receiver, where multiple big names have been dealt.

The Dallas Cowboys kicked off the festivities by dealing Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns at the onset of free agency. The Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs traded Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill shortly thereafter, while the Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans traded away Marquise Brown and A.J. Brown during the draft.

Receiver-needy teams are willing to go out and trade for top talent, while other teams have been willing to exchange them for draft capital rather than hand them new contracts. This may be the new norm for the receiver market moving forward.

We might not have seen the last of wide receiver trades in 2022, either. DK Metcalf is seeking a new deal from the Seattle Seahawks, and Deebo Samuel is still looking for a trade from the San Francisco 49ers.

"I'm told status quo is really when he reported to minicamp; that's the last piece of news that we have here," ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said on SportsCenter late last month regarding Samuel. "Nothing else significant has happened behind the scenes between Samuel and the 49ers. In fact, he hasn't officially rescinded his trade request as far as I've heard."

While Samuel and Metcalf are both strong trade targets for receiver-needy NFL teams, there's another less-discussed wideout whom teams also should have on their radar: Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowler Diontae Johnson.
