Hunter Renfrow could be on the move.
According to a report from Jordan Schultz of Bleacher Report, the Las Vegas Raiders and Renfrow's representatives are actively trying to facilitate a trade ahead of the NFL trade deadline at 4 p.m. on October 31.
Renfrow, 27, has seen his role dramatically diminished this season, hauling in eight receptions for 73 yards on just 12 targets as the Raiders' offense continues to struggle finding any semblance of consistency.
As a result of a disappointing start to the season, and his hefty $10.82 million salary in 2023, at least one front office source suggests Renfrow's market could be "slim" ahead of the deadline.
Since being chosen in the fifth-round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Renfrow has caught 252 passes for 2,702 yards with 17 touchdowns, primarily roaming the slot for the Raiders.
Several teams could be looking to add wide receiver depth, and could be fits for a possible Renfrow trade:
General manager Scott Fitterer has been scouring the trade market for several weeks in search of wide receiver help.
The winless Panthers could use a significant upgrade at receiver as No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young has struggled out of the gate while completing 63.2 percent of his passes for 967 yards with six touchdowns to four interceptions. Carolina's receiving corps has underachieved, with Adam Thielen the only player at the position to surpass 200 receiving yards through the season's first six games.
New England Patriots
A hallmark of the more successful offenses of Bill Belichick's career has been prolific production from the slot receiver position.
Conversely, one of the bigger issues dogging New England's offense this season is the lack of a security blanket for Mac Jones, who has been wildly inconsistent — and benched twice, so far this season. After failing to replace emerging talent Jakobi Meyers at the position, Renfrow could wind up being an upgrade at a schematically key position potentially for a bargain. Adding Renfrow to Jones' supporting cast could create a more well-rounded passing game for the stretch run.
Kansas City Chiefs
It's always a risk making a trade within the division, but even after re-acquiring Mecole Hardman, the Kansas City Chiefs have by no means stopped shopping for help at wide receiver around Patrick Mahomes.
Renfrow's speed in the slot would be a solid complement to Travis Kelce's dominance over the middle of the field. Given that the Chiefs' offense is built around explosive speed, Renfrow is agile enough and sure-handed enough to fit right in while potentially making a significant impact in a receiving corps that's struggled to find its footing so far this season.
