The latest blockbuster trade of the most dramatic NFL offseason in memory forced oddsmakers to shift their futures markets once again.After news broke Wednesday morning that Miami was acquiring All-Pro wide receiver Tyreek Hill from the Kansas City Chiefs, the Dolphins' odds shortened in several key markets.The Dolphins did move from +650 to +400 to win the AFC East at BetMGM and from +700 to +440 at BetRivers, where Miami is also now +1700 to win the AFC Championship after beginning the day at +2800.The biggest impact of the deal was felt by the MVP market.Tua Tagovailoa entered the offseason uncertain to get a third year to prove he is the long-term answer at quarterback in Miami.

Chiefs use franchise tag on LT Orlando Brown
Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Orlando Brown became the first player tagged in the NFL offseason on Monday.Brown would make approximately $16.5 million on the franchise tag in 2022 if the two sides are unable to work out a long-term deal.Acquired from the Baltimore Ravens for a first-round pick in the 2021 draft, Brown stabilized the left side of the Kansas City offensive line in a focused overhaul of the Chiefs' front wall last offseason.A third-round pick of the Ravens who began his career at right tackle, Brown is a three-time Pro Bowl selection who hiked his value by moving to the left side for the Ravens when Ronnie Stanley (ankle) was lost for the 2020 season.Tagging Brown shifts the attention of general manager Brett Veach to safety Tyrann Mathieu, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next week.Mathieu turns 30 in May and said he would love to be back in Kansas City.
