The Miami Dolphins on Sunday agreed to a trade with the Los Angeles Rams, a deal that brings six-time Pro Bowl, three-time First-Team All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey to South Florida. In exchange, the Dolphins are sending a 2023 NFL Draft third-round pick to the Rams along with tight end Hunter Long, the team’s 2021 third-round pick. As the news broke about the trade, several Dolphins players took to social media with their reactions.
The trade will not be official until Wednesday when the new league year begins at 4 p.m. ET.
Wide receiver Tyreek Hill reacted to the deal, looking forward to when the team gets back to practicing, but also looked back at the 2023 Pro Bowl. During the flag football game, Hill was lateraled a ball near the goal line, with Ramsey crushing the receiver in a “non-contact” game. Ramsey did not even realize Hill was there in the moment, but it was funny (because Hill was not injured).
