NFL teams usually admit their mistakes quickly and move on after making a bad offseason decision.

The Chicago Bears released Chase Claypool after he played just 10 games for the wide receiver who they acquired in exchange for the No. 32 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft,

 and the Denver Broncos dealt pass rusher Randy Gregory to the San Francisco 49ers just 19 months after signing him to a five-year,

$70 million contract. These two teams were the only ones to arrange trades to get rid of marquee 2022 offseason acquisitions.

That made us consider current actions that may already be problematic.

It's pretty much summed up by Ezekiel Elliott twice. For the Dallas Cowboys in 2022,

seven of his twelve touchdowns came from one yard out, all of them in the end zone. 

He was not, however, re-signed in the off-season by a team that was said to be dedicated to carrying the ball and that now converts 37% of its chances in the red zone.

To join the New England Patriots, a team that desperately needed to boost its offense, Zeke accepted a highly team-friendly, one-year, $3 million deal.
