Report: Las Vegas Raiders trading former Kentucky star Lynn Bowden Jr.
The Las Vegas Raiders selected former Kentucky QB/WR Lynn Bowden Jr. in Round 3 (No. 80 overall) of the 2020 NFL Draft.
It sounded like Bowden, who was also working as a running back and return man, was impressing during Raiders’ training camp, but he won’t be in Las Vegas when the season starts.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Raiders are sending Bowden and a Round 6 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to the Miami Dolphins for a Round 4 2021 pick:
Sources: The #Raiders are trading RB/returner Lynn Bowden Jr and a 6th rounder to the #Dolphins in exchange for a 4th round pick, the same pick Miami just got from Vegas. The versatile Bowden was a third-rounder this year.

What changed? That is unknown at this time, but it seems Bowden will suit up for the Dolphins this fall instead.
Will he have time to carve out a role for himself early in the season? We’ll find out over the next few weeks.
