It was recently revealed by Hill that he departed the Chiefs because he felt underutilized by the team. By contrast, the 28-year-old claimed he was startled by the team’s attacking strategy.
A four-year, $120 million contract with $72.2 million in guaranteed money with the Dolphins was the price of signing with them. The WR opted to leave the Kansas City side because of his contract and the team’s plans for his ability, he claimed in an interview with Pro Football Talk.
What Tyreek Hill thinks of his Chiefs exit
“If teams are gonna give us favorable one-on-one matches against their best corner, I don’t see why teams don’t utilize their best receiver. And that’s where probably like me and the Chiefs fell apart right there. When I’m like, I don’t mean to talk or be a diva in some situation, but can I see the pill some time, please? Just give me the ball, please.”
“I tried my best. I talked to the big man, [head coach] Andy Reid. I talked to the quarterback. I’m like, ‘Look, can we make something happen? Can we make something happen? Can the guaranteed money make sense to me? Can it make sense to my family, please?'”Tyreek Hill told Pro Football Talk
