The unparalleled era of offensive gameplay by The Kansas City Chiefs can end with Tyreek Hill’s trade
The Chiefs and The Dolphins have disclosed the trade, Hill will be handed his contract upon the completion of the trade. Considering the fact that Tyreek plays with one of the best offences in the NFL and one of the best QBs, it doesn’t seem reasonable for him to leave the chiefs just yet.
The Chiefs had offered Hill a deal that would have made him one of the highest-paid receivers in the NFL, but he turned it down, prompting the Chiefs to allow Hill’s agent permission to seek a trade. With the Dolphins, Hill will receive the contract extension he was looking for also making him the most visible and valuable player for the team.
Hill’s new contract is worth $120 million over four years, according to Rapoport and Pelissero, with $72.2 million guaranteed.
“I am happy for Tyreek, he has grown as a man and player here in Kansas City,” Andy Reid, the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs said. “Myself, my staff and our organization appreciate all he did for our team. This move will also benefit the Chiefs, we now have cap space and additional draft picks to grow as a football team. I wish him well as he moves forward“
According to Rapoport and Pelissero, other clubs (including the Packers and Jets) approached Kansas City about Hill, and the resulting deal fulfilled expectations of a large haul for the six-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro. According to Rapoport, Hill will receive the No. 29 overall pick in this year’s draft, as well as a second-and fourth-round pick in 2022 and a fourth- and a sixth-round pick in 2023.
The Jets’ offer did not include one of their two first-round picks (Nos. 4 and 10 overall), but it did include their two second-round picks.
