NFL statement on Tyreek Hill

[Editor’s note: The NFL released the following statement on Friday, July 19.]

Over the past four months, we have conducted a comprehensive investigation of allegations regarding Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Throughout this investigation, the NFL’s primary concern has been the well-being of the child. Our understanding is that the child is safe and that the child’s ongoing care is being directed and monitored by the Johnson County District Court and the Johnson County Department for Children and Families.

In conducting our investigation, we have taken great care to ensure that we do not interfere with the county’s proceedings or compromise the privacy or welfare of the child in any way. The information developed in the court proceeding is confidential and has not been shared with us, and the court has sealed all law enforcement records. Local law enforcement authorities have publicly advised that the available evidence does not permit them to determine who caused the child’s injuries.

Similarly, based on the evidence presently available, the NFL cannot conclude that Mr. Hill violated the Personal Conduct Policy. Accordingly, he may attend Kansas City’s training camp and participate in all club activities. He has been and will continue to be subject to conditions set forth by the District Court, Commissioner Goodell, and the Chiefs, which include clinical evaluation and therapeutic intervention.

If further information becomes available through law enforcement, the pending court proceeding, or other sources, we will promptly consider it and take all appropriate steps at that time.

  1. Must be nice to play for a team that is regarded as capable of taking down the Pats. Couldn’t possibly make him miss games…

    The NFL found a way to let him off the hook. Gonna be a lot of egg on the league’s face if his kid or girlfriend end up hurt again.. or worse.

    No bias here at all. I guess just because you don’t like the Chiefs he is guilty regardless of whether it is true or not? Facts are important in these types of cases. I’m certainly not a Chiefs fan or condone hurting others.

  3. When there is leniency, the fix is in, when there is punishment, he’s overstepping his bounds. Goodell can’t win for losing with some fans.

    That being said, you wonder if someone has some video or audio they are sitting on for just the right time.

  4. What a joke…they had way more on him then Zeke.He literally threatened the childs mother on tape. Goodell is a clown.

  5. “the NFL’s primary concern has been the well-being of the child. Our understanding is that the child is safe…”

    That’s because they removed him from the household.

  6. So if they couldn’t gather evidence or have access to court documents, what did they actually investigate? In the NFL, the outcome is determined first and then the investigators get to work to achieve that outcome,

  7. “If further information becomes available through law enforcement, the pending court proceeding, OR OTHER SOURCES, we will promptly consider it and take all appropriate steps at that time.”

    Lol, the NFL cares more about $ and ratings than the comments made by Tyreek on the audio tape.

    =============================

    Yep. See: Cardinals no name OT released last week for domestic violence.

    But with them jukes and that 4.30 40 time, Tyreek ain’t goin anywhere. Not surprised at all.

  9. Well, you know in 2019 all it takes is an accusation to destroy a man. Its too bad for all you SJWs that sometimes proof is still required.

    I hope the child can return to some type of normalcy and grows up with the love and care he deserves.

  10. 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 the NFL didn’t force Hill to sit out until Espinal appeared for an interview. 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”?

  11. So AP deserved a complete season’s suspension for applying discipline to his son by striking him with a switch while Hill gets nothing for abusing his son and breaking his arm? I don’t agree with any type of physical striking of a child but there is a huge difference, IMO, between applying discipline and physical abuse. Just more proof that the NFL has some teams that it favors more than others. Unfortunately, my favorite team isn’t one of those.

  12. Have to say I never expected anything to happen with the child abuse angle with no one talking but Hill getting a pass on the “You need to b terrified…” comment in today’s environment is a shock

  13. “based on the evidence presently available, the NFL cannot conclude that Mr. Hill violated the Personal Conduct Policy.”

    Funny how they had conclusive “evidence” of football deflation, even though science proved that footballs naturally deflate in cold weather.

    Definitely some truth to your statement…but if you can hear “you need to be terrified of me too, b1tch,” and think that this is some ‘SJW’ cause gone wild, you’re way off IMO.

    This dude has not changed and is a ticking time bomb.

  15. So basically its means that Law Enforcement would not share anything with them to base any determination on and in the absence of anything to look at they cant even begun to discuss guilt or innocence of anything. And no way should there be a punishment if they just dont know.

    AP didn’t break no one’s arm and he got a year!

    Hill didn’t break the arm either…that was established pretty early on. Try and keep up.
