That's not necessarily a bad thing either, as Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp have traded Jared Goff for Matthew Stafford, Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel will be hooking up with Ryan Fitzpatrick, DJ Moore will be catching passes from Sam Darnold, and Allen Robinson will do the same from either Andy Dalton or Justin Fields. And they aren't alone in this respect.

And don't forget about the rookies either. A year after adding what some were hyping up to be the best crop of first-year wideouts ever, several from the 2021 draft class are expected to make an immediate impact, including Ja'Marr Chase, DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle. It doesn't mean that any of these will be the next Justin Jefferson, but it only adds to the intriguing options that will be available at the wide receiver position this season.
