Tyreek Hill contract negotiations could resume quickly

When reports first emerged of off-field complications that could result in the suspension of Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill, the Chiefs and Hill were talking about a new contract. Those talks could resume, quickly.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Hill’s camp hopes to revisit contract talks “as soon as possible.”

Setting aside the issues that created months of controversy (but ultimately no punishment), Hill is perhaps the best receiver in all of football. Coupled with quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Hill forces the defense to cover every inch of the field, creating plenty of potential openings behind, beside, and in front of defensive backs and linebackers.

As a player, Hill is worth $20 million per year. Don’t be surprised if that’s the target in contract talks.

Hill is due to make $1.965 million in 2019, the final year of his rookie deal. A four-year, $80 million extension would put him under contract for five years, $81.965 million — an average at signing of $16.393 million.

Although Hill was exonerated by the league, the Chiefs may be concerned that future incidents could impact Hill’s availability. Those issues can be addressed during contract negotiations, with the Chiefs securing protection via language that would forfeit guarantees and/or delayed payments of signing-bonus installments.

  1. I would sleep very well if Tyreek Hill suffered an Alex Smith type of injury in training camp and could never play again, and thus would not collect another penny. That would make me happy.

  2. Look at all of the damage that Hill did to the NFL and the Chiefs due to his actions.
    Once an abuser, always an abuser.
    WHEN Hill abuses again, he should be banned for life from the NFL.
    If the Chiefs sign him to a new deal, they had better include some protections for themselves for WHEN Hill abuses again.

  3. Unbelievable. Only a few years ago he admitted to beating and choking a pregnant woman, now the chiefs are going to make him rich. Sad.

  4. The Chiefs would have been better off if Hill had received a suspension—now they will have to pay full retail since Tyreek is a completely innocent man per the NFL.

  5. Goodell = The Real Cheater

    Another AFC team protected to help try to beat the Pats. Could it be any clearer WHY such an obvious and easy suspension is not a reality?

  6. The Chiefs drafted a speedy reciever with a 2nd round pick this year. In my mind, they were preparing for Hill to be suspended. This could make things really interesting for the Chiefs offense. But it also gives the option of the Chiefs waiting to see what this kid has until signing Hill to a big contract. Those two guys with their speed could make that offense unstopable (unnless you have Goodell in your pocket with the refs…no offense patriot fans but we all have eyes).

  7. Tyreek was not exonerated or found to be innocent in whatever happened with his kid, they just didn’t have enough evidence to do anything. Coupled with that domestic assault from years ago in college, it’s not a matter of IF this guy will do something again, the only issue is whether or not they will have video proof or witnesses the next time. too risky for that kind of money.

    I would let Tyreek walk after this season…

  8. I’m not going to say he’s guilty or innocent, though I have an opinion. I will say that I’ve lived long enough to believe that karma is a real, real thing- and that bad people seem to invite more negativity. Let it all play out. I’m only concerned about the three children in this and that they are not impacted if karma comes calling.

  9. This is tarnish on the Chiefs after they washed their hands of Kareem Hunt. If I ran the team I’d trade him, or suspend him for personal conduct at team level. He wouldn’t take the field. Morals first!

  10. Hope he gets the biggest WR contract and shuts these cry baby nobody ppl up. Was found innocent on all charges but they still cry. Poor things.

  11. Once I actually heard the WHOLE (unedited) tape it was very clear that he was threatening to expose what SHE did to the kid when he said, “You should be terrified of me too b*tch”

    He wasn’t threatening to physically hit her – he was actually threatening to TELL ON her.

  12. Good. The DA investigated twice and even the Inspector Gadgets of the NFL investigated. I’m sure the legal arm and the bribe masters in the league have access to information we and the media don’t. So for both parties to not find him culpable means they know something we don’t or couldn’t without a shadow point the finger at him. I could care less if Hill plays, but I do care that the legal system works as designed for everyone, even if it’s not to our liking. He can move on and provide finances for his kid at a minimum. Kinda counter-productive to un-employ someone and then expect them to feed and cloth their children in a lifestyle that they were accustomed to. Then you call him a bigger scumbag for not doing that. Move on.

    sounds about right IF. IF. IF. IF they play the clots instead of you know who.

  15. Guy is found innocent but fans wish harm on him. Beautiful world we live in…
    /////
    @jaybaxt he wasn’t found “innocent” he was never brought to trial, there is a huge difference. He just was not charged..Now, I’m not saying he did it(evidence seem to show otherwise) but I would not call him innocent, eventhough he may be of this specific incident. I don’t disagree with you about the way people are reacting(you would think they just heard for the first time he beat and choked his pregnant girlfriend)

  16. Someone mentioned the Chiefs should trade him, which is an interesting bargaining point.

    Given the Chiefs recent bad history (LJohnson, JBelcher, KHunt, THill) and the quite possible chance that Tyreek finds himself in trouble again.. do you at least field calls?

    A: You see if other teams value him as you do. B: If teams don’t pony up a decent offer, you can use that information in contract negotiations with Tyreek to low-ball him. C: Maybe someone will trade for him, take the PR hit, give you two firsts and some spare change, and they’ll pay him a king’s ransom.

    Electrifying player, without question. But, I would at least call a few teams to gauge the situation better.

    Since the default of any case in the US is the accused is innocent until proven otherwise I don’t know what you’re getting at in your first sentence.

  18. Kick a woman in the butt = get cut

    Terrorize a 3 year old and break his arm = record setting contract.

    Yeah, that seems fair. As fair as Goodell and the NFL.
    What a miscarriage of Justice

  19. “Although Hill was exonerated by the league, the Chiefs may be concerned that future incidents could impact Hill’s availability.”

    ******************************

    If the Chiefs are not concerned about possible future incidents, they are idiots!

  20. So how does the NFL justify a $2 Million Dollar investigation into properly inflated footballs which ended in a 4 game suspension based on a should have known better conclusion, and then no punishment whatsoever for possible child abuse which ends with a little boys broken arm, and a threat of more violence captured on audio?

  21. Will Chiefs fans really cheer for this guy? They all know what’s true. Is a silver trophy at the end of the year — the team’s accomplishment and not the fans’, BTW — all it takes for decent people to root for this unspeakable pig?

    Yes we will. He is innocent. Do you have some evidence that the police, DFS, and league doesnt have?

    So in your twisted mind you think this is a DEFENSE of Hill????? In other words he knows who broke his 3 year old’s arm and is not only protecting her but still letting his child be alone with her??

    Man, the mental gymnastics some people will go through just to protect their fantasy draft is pathetic.
