Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams pulled off two of the biggest power moves in recent NFL history. Adams forced his way to the Raiders to become the highest-paid wideout in the league, just for Hill to one-up him a couple of days later with a move to the Dolphins.

Now, both players will be in the spotlight and looking to prove that they were as impactful as those QBs throwing them the football from day 1 of their careers.

That's why Cowboys legend Michael Irving thinks both star wideouts made a mistake. Per him, leaving two of the best QBs in the league was a no-go, regardless of the financial situation:

“You left and Patrick Mahomes — I don’t know if I could’ve ever left Troy Aikman,” Irvin told Ryan Glasspiegel of The New York Post. “I don’t think I could’ve done that.”

If all they wanted was a change of scenery, they could've just bought another house and lived there in the offseason, says Irvin:

“You can still go live there in your house in the offseason, but I’m not leaving those quarterbacks,” Irvin said. “Let’s see how this plays out. You’re making $30 million and you can have houses in two places. I think the most important thing is taking care of what’s on the football field.

Playing next to Tua Tagovailoa and Derek Carr is a step back in terms of QB production, which is why Irvin thinks people will start questioning their contracts if they don't put up big numbers on their new teams:

“They had some great quarterbacks. I’m interested in seeing how it works out with Tua [Tagovailoa] and [Derek] Carr, but it’s surely not Mahomes and Rodgers. If you make that move, do you shorten the time you’re making $30 million a year because all of a sudden, you’re not making the same impact? This is a meritocracy, Irvin added.

They Better Stay Productive

Hill and Adams will make a lot of money, so Irvin believes they'll need to be even better than they were thus far to justify those contracts:

If you’re not putting up the numbers to support that $30 million, they’ll come for you, just like Dallas did with Amari Cooper and his $20 million. It would’ve been hard for me to make a business decision on leaving those quarterbacks, Irvin concluded.

Both are generational talents that could thrive anywhere, so they better prove it.
