Tyreek Hill: Teammates try to race me in offseason workouts, winning is easy

Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill may be the fastest player in the NFL, and he’s certainly the fastest player in Kansas City, where he proves that whenever teammates want to try him.

Hill said on PFT Live that during offseason workouts, other players seek out the challenge of racing him, but he has no trouble beating them.

“We do a lot of speed drills. Guys are calling me out left and right,” Hill said. “It’s too easy.”

Hill’s speed rating in Madden was “only” a 97, and Hill reached out to the video game makers to try to figure out how his speed rating could be anything short of perfect.

“I have spoken with someone at EA,” he said. “I’m the fastest in the league, you know what I’m saying? I need my credit.”

This year Hill will be catching passes from new starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who has one of the strongest arms in the NFL, but Hill says that if he flies down the field, Mahomes can throw it as far as he wants and Hill will be able to run to it.

“There’s no quarterback who can overthrow me. It’s not even possible,” Hill said.

The Chiefs are hoping the combination of Mahomes’ big arm and Hill’s speed results in some big-play touchdowns in 2018.

  1. Big Ben can overthrow you. He overthrew Mike Wallace a few times in his first couple seasons. Love him or hate, that man has a cannon. That being said, every time Hill gets a touch, I expect a homerun

  2. Hill is straight up the most electrifying play maker in the league. With some help from Travis Kelce, they managed to turn Alex freaking Smith into a 4,000 yard passer, something he hadn’t done in his entire career. And if Smith hadn’t missed Hill streaking wide open downfield countless numbers of times, who knows how big his numbers would have been.

    The guy is going to light up the league with Mahomes under center and Watkins on the other side of him. It’s going to be ridiculous.

    Tyreek Hill is Amazing, and Now, he has a QB that can help him take advantage of his abilities. Should be Fun to Watch

    ——

    What has Mahommes shown anyone to make them believe he is better than Alex Smith? It’s more likely that Mahommes will be Andy Dalton 2.0.

  4. He should race Jakeem Grant for $. In fact, the NFL should bring back the “NFL’s fastest man” competition. Open it up to everyone in the NFL. Darrell Green too.

  5. Calling EA sports to complain,LOL.
    Only thing on his mind should be helping KC win a Super Bowl.

  6. Mahomes is essentially a rookie so I will tamp down expectations for him.

    What he has going for him is he is working with Andy Reid who always seems to get the most out of quarterbacks and the fact the Chiefs saw enough from him in practice to trade away a very solid QB in Alex Smith who was coming off a career year.

    Speaking of which…It seems Reid has a knack for getting rid of QBs and getting significant returns at just the right time.

    I remember he fleeced my Redskins in a trade for McNabb a 8 or 9 years ago. He got a second round pick plus a conditional 3rd for a washed up McNabb.

    He traded AJ Feely to Dolphins in the early 2000s for a 2nd round pick.

    He traded Kevin Kolb to the Cardinals for a second round pick in 2011.

    And now it appears he’s gone back to the well again and victimized my Skins who apparently are always ready and willing to play the role of sucker.
    Reid got back a 3rd plus Kendall Fuller who I think will be a solid CB for a QB who will be 35 this season. Meanwhile we immediately gave Smith a 4 year $94 million deal with the expectations that he will replicate his career year he just had even though we don’t have near the offensive weapons KC has.

    Done venting…..I think.

  7. Great player and I wish him the best but the fastest guys don’t have the longest careers. They either get hurt or don’t develop their game so when they lose a step they are done. Still fun to watch when they are at their peak.

  8. So, according to all of you he should have what, 30 or 40 TDs this year because no one can catch him, right? Mahomes will play Uncle Rico and throw it over the mountain and Hill will run it down for 2-3 TDs a game?

    I’ll be impressed when he breaks Randy Moss’ single season TD record – I’m not impressed with him calling EA to complain about his speed rating.

  9. Those who are doubting mahomes ability to play didn’t see him in the last game against Denver in mile high where he got us out to a big lead was sat down then came back off the bench to win the game. That’s some swag…

  10. “There’s no quarterback who can overthrow me. It’s not even possible,” Hill said.

    That’s what they used to say about Randy Moss, but I watched quarterbacks overthrow him many times. If the quarterback throws the ball too early, the wide receiver can’t get under it. Moss and Hill have a better chance of catching up to a mistimed throw but they aren’t so fast that they can run faster than you can throw. Remember that scene in Hoosiers when Gene Hackman challenged the fastest guy on the team to a race to see who gets the ball to the other end of the court the fastest? The kid dribbled and Hackman passed the ball. Hackman’s ball got there a lot faster.

    Mahomes will lead the league in picks every year he plays
    ——————————-
    And if he drags in a Lombardi or two, no one will care.

    So one game where the Broncos were already packed up for the year and you are convinced he is one of the NFL’s best QBs? Interesting…

    Of course they were. What were they playing for? The Broncos looked terrible that game as if they were already on vacation. Aqib Talib was jogging around the field which is why he got traded. See the tape for yourself.

    When I look at the tape I see the starters still in the game and a team that went on the next week to spank the Raiders. What am I missing?

  16. Tyreek Hill has already had one domestic violence incident he pleaded guilty to before he got to the NFL for strangling his pregnant girl-friend. Its only a matter of time before Hill gets whacked twice by the NFL after he has another. So he can be so fast he can turn off a bed-room light and be asleep before the light turns off. It won’t matter when he’s not playing….

  17. “There’s no quarterback who can overthrow me. It’s not even possible,” Hill said.

    Clearly he’s never played with Cam Newton.
