NFL resolves Tyreek Hill situation without a visit to New York

Usually, the NFL brings a player who is under investigation for violating the Personal Conduct Policy to 345 Park Avenue in Manhattan as a precursor to a suspension. But not always, as Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott recently learned.

Elliott made an early-July trip to New York City for a meeting with the Commissioner that resulted in no discipline for Elliott’s run-in with a 19-year-old security guard at a Las Vegas music festival. A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the league closed the book on Hill without having him come to New York for a formal sit-down.

While some would call it a distinction without a difference, the league likely believed that Elliott needed to have the Fear of Goodell infused upon him. Which means that the league decided based on its investigation of Tyreek Hill that Hill did not need a formal get together of that kind, and the message that would have gone along with it.

Regardless, Hill is free and clear to play football in 2019 and beyond.

  1. Told everyone that Tyreke was innocent.
    Everyone in KC knew it.
    Apologize to the man.

  2. The witch hunt is over. I just hope Tyreek doesn’t hold it against KC. The media however, gets all the negative attention they deserve.

  3. The mom and her family are now the focus of investigation.
    All men out there, save texts…….it may clear you someday against a nutcase.
    The texts cleared Tyreke.

  4. So a 3 year old child was removed from the home, Espinal didn’t appear for an interview with the NFL, the NFL didn’t interview Espinal, and Goodell didn’t force Hill to sit out until Espinal appeared for an interview and Goodell wasn’t interested enough to interview anyone personally. Meanwhile Espinal filed a paternity suit against Hill which will apparently result in a lot of money to Espinal when Hill signs a contract for $75M+ after not being disciplined. This is Roger Goodell’s world of presiding over the NFL’s domestic violence “policy”?

  5. This is despicable, a terrible day for the NFL. Thumbs way, way down. By just the threat he said to Espinal on the recorded audio he should be suspended four games. Terrible.

  6. Telling, isn’t it, that the Commish didn’t feel the need to take that perfunctory step?
