NFL Rumors: Chiefs are Trading Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins


According to reports from NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Kansas City Chiefs are sending their six-time Pro Bowl WR Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for the 29th and 50th picks in this year's NFL draft. As well they will be receiving two fourth round picks (one this year and another next) and a sixth rounder next season.

Earlier in the day, there were reports that it was down to the New York Jets or Dolphins. It was up to Hill to decide where his future would be. He chose to take his talents to Miami where he is set to become the highest paid receiver in the NFL.  He has reportedly signed a new contract worth 75 Million dollars over the next three years which includes 72.2 million guaranteed.

Late this morning, the Chiefs management told Hill they will be looking to trade him as contract talks were starting to stall. Within two hours, the trade to the Dolphins was finalized.

The star receiver made the Pro Bowl in all six of his NFL seasons with the Chiefs. Last season, Hill led all Chiefs players in receiving yards with 1335. He also finished second behind tight end Travis Kelce is total touchdowns. 

Hill leaves Kansas City as a top receiver in the game along with a Super Bowl title in 2020. He finished with over 1000 receiving yards in four of his six seasons. 

The Chiefs offense will look much different without Hill but they recently signed wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster to take his spot as one of the top receivers on the team alongside Mecole Hardman who will likely get more reps as well.

As for the Dolphins, they continue to be busy as they added Hill to already busy off-season to revamp their offense. They also added WR Cedrick Wilson, RB Raheem Mostert, LT Terron Armstead and LG Connor Williams among a few other pieces to their offense. While Hill and Armstead are probably the biggest names added, the Dolphins definitely look to have a much improved offensive to the one that finished 25th in the league in total yardage and 22nd in points per game.
