Goodell: We’ll speak to Tyreek Hill when courts allow for it

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill is not with the Chiefs for offseason workouts, but he has not been placed on the Commissioner Exempt list as a child abuse investigation involving his son plays out in Kansas.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell didn’t signal a change in that status when asked about Hill at a press conference from the league meetings in Florida on Wednesday. Goodell said the league would wait for the Kansas Department for Children and Families and local law enforcement to conduct investigations before attempting to speak with Hill and make any determination about disciplinary action.

“We will not interfere with that,” Goodell said The priority is the young child. We will obviously be cooperative with whatever the court wants. We are prepared to go ahead and have an interview whenever we have the permission to do so and then we’ll go ahead and make a determination based on what information we have at that time.”

Local law enforcement announced in late April that Hill would not be charged with a crime, but authorities reopened the case after an audio recording of Hill and his child’s mother discussing how they treated their son surfaced following that announcement.

  1. But the evidence and settlement does allow you to speak to Eli for faking NFL memorabilia.

  2. I would have no problem with this stance….if it was consistent; like everything else he does, it is not. KC can still put him on ice until the investigation ends, I wonder if they will.

    Duh.

    Spygate and Deflategate.

    Goodell caught stone cold lying about each.

  4. Threatening his pregnant fiance and openly admitting to punching a 3 year old in the chest isn’t enough with his history?

    Shame on your Roger, shame on you.

    SMH

  5. I know everyone wants blood, but there is no need for the NFL to do anything right now. Tyreek has been sent home and is not getting paid. He is under investigation by actual law enforcement. I am certain Tyreek will not be playing this season or possibly ever again, but there is no need for the league to rush into anything just yet….other than the bad press which quite obviously has zero affect on Ol’ Rog.

  6. So Ezekiel Elliott, who was never charged or convicted of anything gets six games, and the guy who was convicted of assaulting a pregnant woman, and got nothing, now gets more special treatment.

    This man is reprehensible.

    …He is currently suspended from all team activities.

  8. I don’t understand the need for immediate blood. It’s the off season….let the courts and legal process play out and then take action. I don’t condone what he allegedly did whatsoever….I also don’t need him tarred and feathered yeaterday.

    The exempt list isn’t punishment, but it takes the pressure off the team. They don’t have to talk about him anymore.

  10. ZERO evidence Tyreek Hill did anything wrong in this. Not charged. No arrested. Should be no suspension for Hill.

    He admitted he hits his child, in the chest!! That qualifies as evidence he has harmed his child. That most definitely deserves a suspension.
