11 wide receivers that the Washington Football Team could trade for now
Group 1: Likely available talents
If the WTF makes a trade for a wide receiver sometime soon, it could be Kenny Stills of the Houston Texans. He has bounced around the league a lot, but he is a solid option. The Texans have a substantial number of receivers and Stills would probably cost a fifth-rounder, maybe a sith with any luck. The Texans could also take a look at Peyton Barber, J.D. McKissic, or Jordan Brailford in any possible trade.
Hakeem Butler hasn’t done anything for the Arizona Cardinals and a change of scenery could help his fortunes. He would likely require a seventh-rounder in any trade. The Cardinals, who have a lot of receiver talent after the DeAndre Hopkins trade, could also use another defensive lineman and a straight-up trade for Brailford or Ryan Bee is possible as well.
The Denver Broncos are loaded with receivers after selecting three in the 2020 NFL Draft and it could be good news for the WFT. DaeSean Hamilton is an intriguing possibility and he could be traded for a seventh-round selection or a conditional sixth-round choice.

Demarcus Robinson could be a solid addition from the Kansas City Chiefs. He competes with several talented receivers and is buried on the depth chart, but has put up some good numbers over the years.
Robinson is young and his production in a Burgundy and Gold uniform could actually improve. He is due for a new deal next year, but it would likely be an affordable, team-friendly contract. Acquiring Robinson would likely take a sixth-rounder, maybe a seventh.
Josh Reynolds of the Los Angeles Rams is another talented receiver that is buried on his team’s depth chart but can still haul in a fair amount of receptions each year. This could be a very attractive option for the WFT.
The Rams are very tight on cap space, especially for 2021. Reynolds could be available for a seventh-round selection or nothing more than a swap of draft choices in the final round. The former Texas A&M Aggie is also due to receive a new contract in 2021 or he can be tendered on a one-year deal if needed.
Zay Jones of the Las Vegas Raiders is a solid player, but the Raiders drafted two excellent receivers this year and their pass-catching corps is loaded with talent. Jones is now far down on the depth chart.
The Buffalo Bills traded Jones to the Raiders during the 2019 season and that is after a 2018 season when he hauled in 56 receptions. In 10 games for the Raiders, Jones caught 20 passes. The bottom line is that he is productive.
Jones, is likely available for a swap of seventh-round picks or a conditional pick in the same round. Like Reynolds and Robinson, Jones is also due to receive a new contract in 2021 or he can be tendered on a one year deal if needed
Dante Pettis had a good first year with the 49ers, but what happened in year two? For reasons unknown, the former Washington Husky seems to be occupying the doghouse in San Francisco (pun fully intended). Pettis has the ability and talent. He comes with a question mark, but a new address could be what is needed for him and Washington. Pettis could be available for a seventh-rounder or possibly a conditional sixth-round draft choice.
