Tyreek Hill has new agent, hopes to increase off-field profile

Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill arrived in the NFL with a cloud of controversy, due to a criminal past that included assaulting his then-pregnant girlfriend. As he excels on the field and stays away from trouble off it, Hill hopes to turn his current situation into revenue and good deeds by hiring a new agent.

Hill has signed with Drew Rosenhaus, after going for a period of time without an agent. Although Hill isn’t able to negotiate a new contract with the Chiefs until after the 2018 season concludes, his goal is to further his brand via involvement in community activities and to parlay his on-field performance into marketing deals.

The former should be easy; there are plenty of worthy causes he can support with time, money, and attention. The latter will be a challenge, given the off-field misconduct from his college days.

It also will be a challenge for Hill to stand out the way he did a year ago, given reduced involvement in special teams and a role of offense that at times entails drawing attention without the ball than churning up yardage with it.

  1. “due to a criminal past that included assaulting his then-pregnant girlfriend”

    This implies that there were multiple instances of crimes committed in the past. Anyone with a brain knows the action in the quotes is beyond horrible, but using wording as if this was just one of multiple run-ins with the law in irresponsible.

  2. Didn’t just assault his pregnant girlfriend, he punched her in the stomach…assualting his unborn child as well.
    I’ll make it a point to never but anything this guy endorsed.

  3. I guess sitting down when the announcer asks everyone to stand for the national anthem to honor our men and women in uniform will raise your profile. As he did. But not among the people you want to buy your jersey.

    Are you going to “boycott” the NFL or is that reserved for nonviolent protests?
