An NFL offseason dominated by blockbuster trades added another deal to the list on Wednesday. The Miami Dolphins traded five draft picks to acquire Pro Bowl wide receiver Tyreek Hill from the Kansas City Chiefs, which has left many people wondering about DeVante Parker's future in Miami.

Parker has seven years of NFL experience under his belt and has racked up 4,727 receiving yards in 93 career games. That has to be an intriguing resume for teams in search of WR improvements. With that being said, let's take a look at three of the most likely trade destinations for Parker.

DeVante Parker Trade Destinations

1. Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have been linked to all kinds of wide receivers in both free agency and trade talks this offseason, so it would make sense that they'd be in the running for Parker as well. Philadelphia is in need of a big-bodied pass-catcher to pair with DeVonta Smith on the outside and Parker has the perfect frame to be that player (6-foot-3, 291 pounds). The 29-year-old has averaged 62.8 receiving yards per game over the last three years and comes with a very affordable cap hit in 2022 & 2023. All things considered, the Eagles may be the most willing to give up the necessary draft capital.

2. Green Bay Packers

The departure of Davante Adams has left the Green Bay Packers lacking a true No. 1 wideout for quarterback Aaron Rodgers to lean on. It's worth pointing out that Parker had the best season of his career (72 receptions for 1,202 yards) in 2019 when a notorious deep thrower in Ryan Fitzpatrick was at the helm. Rodgers' arm strength could bring out the best in Parker and allow Green Bay to remain a force through the air. After all, Parker averages a reliable 14.0 yards per reception in his career and is a mismatch against most cornerbacks in the end zone. Keeping Rodgers appeased by acquiring Parker makes a lot of sense here.

3. Indianapolis Colts

The Colts showed the rest of the league that they are in win-now mode by trading for veteran quarterback Matt Ryan on Monday. Surrounding him with as many weapons as possible is the logical next step. The divisional rival Tennessee Titans made a deal for Robert Woods and countering that move by trading for Parker would put the Colts right back in the thick of the AFC South. The Louisville product can haul in contested catches and possesses the elusiveness needed to break tackles over the middle. Pairing Parker with Michael Pittman Jr. would give Indianapolis an underrated duo for years to come.
