Tyreek Hill has been a critical piece in the Chiefs’ offense for the last six seasons. That built-up chemistry and connection between him and Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes was unmatched, but it came to an end this offseason.
The six-time Pro Bowler will not be playing in Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday afternoons after he was traded to the Miami Dolphins. When Kansas City traded Hill in a blockbuster trade to the Dolphins in March, it made the three-time All-Pro the highest paid wide receiver in NFL history.
After more than two months since Kansas City parted ways, it appears that Hill is ready to discuss his issues with the Chiefs and what ultimately led to him not remaining with the franchise.
In a teaser trailer for his upcoming podcast, Cheetah said he wanted to be in KC before the question was posed that the Chiefs were “suppressing his stats” and didn’t utilize his skills correctly.
“Once the season was over, we reached out to the Chiefs and we said, ‘hey, y’know, we wanna keep it going,’ Tyreek wanted to be there,” Rosenhaus said.
Hill then interjected: “Say that again! Tyreek wanted to be in KC. Wanted — wanted to be in KC, man.”
“We tried to do an extension with them,” Rosenhaus responded.
Last season, Hill recorded a career-high 111 receptions for 1,239 receiving yards and nine touchdowns.
