Chiefs working on new deal for Tyreek Hill

The Chiefs are expected to part ways with Justin Houston, and are reportedly open to the possibility of trading franchise-tagged Dee Ford.

That would be a lot of money coming off the books. They have plans for it.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Chiefs have begun negotiations with wide receiver Tyreek Hill on what would be a massive contract.

The former fifth-round pick is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and this is the first chance they have to pay him (you can’t extend rookie deals before three years have passed).

He has 3,255 receiving yards, 477 receiving yards, and 29 combined touchdowns in three seasons, with the kind of game-breaking speed that makes any pla a potential big play.

They can’t pay quarterback Patrick Mahomes yet, but this figures to be an enormous deal.

  1. fifth round money was paid to this guy. we all know why but man is his life going to change shortly.

  2. As a Patriot’s fan, I’m thrilled they’re going to pay him huge money. I watched a no name corner, Jonathan Jones, absolutely shut him down in the AFCCG. His big catch for 42 yds was when Jones wasn’t on the field…and that was all he had for production, one catch…biggest game of the season.

    Teams/players never learn with these massive contracts, teams end up handcuffed in the beginning years and the players end up cut way before the end of the contract.

  3. A no name shut him down? But why do the stats say he was double coverd on 90% of his routes? Lol come on kid.

    Patriots fans love to peddle fiction. The patriots actually double teamed tyreek hill the entire game in the afc championship game.

  5. KC is in a no win situation here. All their young stars on offense & defense are all coming due within the next 1-3 years. Just have to bite the bullet & start somewhere. Looks like they’re letting any defensive producers walk. So maybe Kielce is next. Might as well keep that bread & butter offense together.

  6. Nope, watch the game again. Having McCourty shade over to his side of the field and provide coverage over the top isn’t the same as two DBs jamming him at the line like what happens to Gronk every game.

    Nothing to argue about. I’m AGREEING with you Chiefs fans. I hope they make him the highest paid WR in NFL history. It’s what you all want, it’s what fans of the Broncos, Chargers, Raiders and Patriots want. Win win!

  7. Patriots are about to have a decade plus of losing. Let the fans chirp about their tainted glory years, it’s all they have left to enjoy.

  8. I don’t know why the Chiefs are paying their offensive guys, for their problem is on defense – no defense is what got them beaten in overtime.

  9. You don’t need highly paid WRs to win in this league…money is better spent on more important positions…get a clue people!

  10. So he should get about $20 to $25 million a year, especially since they gave Watkins $20 million. Since they have no cap room and no decent receivers some other starters will need to be cut and replaced with rookie free agents. Berry has to much dead cap space for his 1 to games a year. Then it will be even worse next year when Mahomes commands a $40 million a year contract. Should be an interesting year with an offensive with no blockers an a Big 12 like defense.

  11. Patriots are about to have a decade plus of losing. Let the fans chirp about their tainted glory years, it’s all they have left to enjoy.

    So I guess the Pats then become the Chiefs?

  12. Great. Maybe he will not beat up anymore pregnant women. Tyreek is a piece of crap no matter how fast he can run. If you like to beat up pregnant women, you belong in jail, not the NFL. Oh wait, the National Felons League….

  13. Kc has this problem where they draft great players. It’s a curse! Got to pay everybody.

  14. These are all John Dorsey’s draft picks. Now that he is gone, I doubt the Chiefs will be able to replicate their recent draft success.

  15. Actually they were Veach, Veach did all the work and scouting and brought the info back to dorsey.

    No but these are John Dorsey’s contracts that are killing the payroll now. Dorsey is the idiot that gave Berry and Houston these ridiculous contracts and that’s why he’s in Cleveland now.
