It looks like Tyreek Hill was very vigilant in making sure his career was not going to go down the tubes.
Many wondered why the Kansas City Chiefs didn’t really move on getting Hill off their roster as they did Kareem Hunt when allegations arose, but as it turns out, it was because Hill and his lawyers had evidence ready for them to view to prove his innocence.
According to Yahoo! Sports’ Terez Paylor:
“The NFL’s judgment supports the notion that the evidence Hill and his attorneys provided league investigators during an eight-hour meeting on June 26 was significant, as sources told Yahoo Sports that Hill included text messages supporting the assertions he made in his own defense in a four-page letter he sent the NFL in early May regarding the child abuse case. Authorities were looking into the welfare of Hill’s 3-year-old son who suffered a broken arm.
The Chiefs have also viewed that evidence, sources told Yahoo Sports, and have been aware of much of it for months, which contributed to the team’s initial decision to not part ways with him when the child-abuse investigation began in early March.”
Once the decision came down by the league to forego a suspension, Hill would take to Twitter to thank his fans and the Chiefs organization while promising he “will continue to strive to be the best father, the best friend, the best role model, and the best mentor that I can be.”
Tyreek is expected to be a full participant in training camp, which kicks off on July 26th.
