The NFL delivered in a way only it knows how to in another crazy display of teams’ urgency to catapult their hopes of a prosperous 2022 season. 

Suspended Atlanta Falcons star Calvin Ridley co-headlined the day’s acquisitions, alongside Pro Bowl outside linebacker, Bradley Chubb, who was dealt from Denver to Miami. 

Ridley is currently serving a suspension through the 2022 season, as a minimum, for wagering on NFL games during a sabbatical in the 2021 campaign. 

Notwithstanding his current inactivity, Jacksonville snared Ridley from Atlanta in exchange for Atlanta having a 2023 fifth-round pick and a 2024 conditional fourth-rounder.  

Once Calvin Ridley’s suspension is fully served, he will be playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars

Bradley Chubb has been a source of both elation & frustration for fans during his time in DEN

It could rise to as high as a 2024 second-rounder if the Jaguars agree a contract extension with the receiver — whose current deal expires at the end of the ’23 season.

If Ridley is merely on the Jags roster come 2024 it will be just a fourth, though a third-round pick is possible if particular incentives are met. 

Meanwhile, Miami’s AFC aspirations received an astronomical boost after signing prolific pass rusher Chubb. 

The Dolphins parted ways with a package including a 2023 first-round pick for the 5.5 sack star. 

Chase Claypool has a year-and-a-half left on his rookie deal which the Bears will now pick up

Miami accrued Chubb and a 2025 fifth-rounder while Denver received their first-round pick (via San Francisco), a 2024 fourth-round pick and running back, Chase Edmonds.

Meanwhile, the Bears sprung a surprise by securing Justin Fields some much-needed wideout talent in Pittsburgh’s Chase Claypool.

Despite trading away two defensive stars – Robert Quinn and Roquan Smith – in the previous week, Chicago dealt a 2023 second-rounder to the Steelers for the ex-Notre Dame star.

Pittsburgh will receive the Bears’ original second-round pick, as opposed to the one acquired by the organization via the Smith trade. 

Pro Bowl tight end T.J. Hockenson is staying in the NFC North but is moving to the 6-1 Vikings

Minnesota secured a star tight end in T.J. Hockenson from division rival Detroit Lions in the Lions’ first intra-division player trade since 1998.  

Hockenson was a Pro Bowler in 2020 and the Vikings received the No. 8 overall in 2019, a 2023 fourth-round pick and a conditional 2024 fourth-rounder — which will become a fifth if Minnesota win a playoff game.

In return, the Lions acquired a 2023 second-round choice and a 2024 third-round pick.
