Andy Reid: We have trust in Tyreek Hill

Getty Images

Chiefs coach Andy Reid is standing by Tyreek Hill.

Reid said that Hill, who was not disciplined by the NFL after an investigation into whether he abused his son, will be welcomed with open arms at training camp in Kansas City.

“We’re comfortable with Tyreek coming back here,” Reid said. “We look forward to bringing him back here and having an opportunity to get back doing what he loves to do. He has some obligations he’ll take care of as he goes, and I’m not going to get into all that. . . . We have trust in Tyreek and we’re going to go forward in a positive way here.”

The Chiefs took a chance on Hill in the 2016 NFL draft when they selected him despite the domestic violence case that got him kicked off the team at Oklahoma State, and now they’re sticking with him again. Reid is comfortable with that, even if not everyone is comfortable seeing someone with Hill’s track record welcomed back to the NFL.

  1. Crystal Espinal, Tyreek’s girlfriend and mother of his children, need psychiatric help. Tyreek is not a low character guy, he just got wrapped up with an attractive unstable woman. Let him move on.

  2. Ha. Well of course you are, Andy. And thanx for sparing us the details about his obligations, it will maybe save you the humiliation of expalining why it’s not a thing later on.

    Absolutely ridiculous that he wasn’t suspended. Karma is coming to the Chiefs.
    —————————-
    So you would like to see a guy who was set up be suspended? If he did anything wrong the NFL would have suspended him. Obviously those actually involved, know he didnt do anything wrong here.

  4. Reid is soft. Zero discipline with his players, no accountability. He runs his team like a country club just the same way he raised his family. The Chiefs will never have the mental fortitude to win big. Am i lying? Off sides, Dee Ford.

  5. Sure Andy, but would you ever trust Tyreek Hill with your daughters, or ask him to babysit one of your sons when they were little?

    Then again, Andy Reid probably would.

  6. Cue the jealous haters, who want to be Judge Judy.
    I am thankful for a class organization, who waited for the truth and the facts, to come forth, instead of listening to the media clowns to bsnish me.
    Goodell heard the facts.
    The PD has the facts.
    The State of Kansas has the facts.
    You can not keep a good man down.

  7. The question is whether Tyreek Hill’s child will ever trust him. I would suspect the odds of that happening are pretty long.

  8. Regardless of what the NFL says we know what he did in college, so keep that in mind, those that are defending such a pos.

  9. His son was removed from his home. The state of Kansas doesn’t trust Hill. This is pathetic.

    Hill already admitted to assaulting his pregnant girlfriend by punching her in the abdomen. I want to see him incarcerated

  11. “Crystal Espinal, Tyreek’s girlfriend and mother of his children, need psychiatric help. Tyreek is not a low character guy, he just got wrapped up with an attractive unstable woman”

    Hill is a serial domestic abuser and its always the abuser’s claim that is the victim’s fault. No surprise to see those who think so supporting him. He’s about as low character as it gets.

  12. Reid is embarrassing. He is a weak man. This is a guy who whined about Dee Ford not getting a freakin warning about lining up offside. THAT is sad. Even sadder is Reid being desperate for a Title so he is selling his soul to try and get one, as is Clark Hunt. Frank Clark, Tyreek Hill after the Kareem Hunt mess, are you kidding me ?! Karma is going to come calling this yr in KC

  13. Trash organization from the top down! Clark Hunt created a win at all costs culture and Andy Reid follows in his shadow…All they care about is winning and have ZERO MORAL COMPASS…It’s really a sad state of affairs in KC..

  14. The state of Kansas removed the kid from the mothers home,not Tyrekes.
    Know the truth

  15. Touch a woman or be rough with her and no legal charges are filed, and you get suspended. A CHILD’S ARm GETS BROKEN and it’s all Good(dell)? What is wrong with the message this sends?

  16. Starting to wonder if when KC got screwed with their punishment on the tampering charges, where it was on the heels of Goodell framing Brady, where it appeared he was tryin to show he was even handed with his Draconian work, this is now a payback of sorts for Clark Hunt.

    It kinda makes sense, when you think about it.

    Collude and cover up for Hunt, the video comes out, and they are forced to release him a la Ray Rice and now with Hill.

    If they lost Hunt and then Hill, it’s all over for KC in terms of winning that division. A wild card is also a stretch when you can just double KEcle and easily remove Watkins.

  17. Regardless of what the NFL says we know what he did in college, so keep that in mind, those that are defending such a pos.

    You know for sure what he did in college? You were there in the arbitration room where a guilty plea deal was struck… Please do tell. The fact is you weren’t, and have no clue. Chances are being a young black man possibly going to court he agreed to plead guilty to something he didn’t do to get off with just probation rather than risk going in front of, probably, an all white jury and having a toss up about going to prison.

    So did something happen yes. What we were told exactly what happened, maybe, maybe not.

  18. Touch a woman or be rough with her and no legal charges are filed, and you get suspended. A CHILD’S ARm GETS BROKEN and it’s all Good(dell)? What is wrong with the message this sends?

    If you actually followed the story the broken arm wasn’t even a factor in removing the child from the home. There was an article that came about that, that the police determined that was actually just an accident. There were other things that were found that led to the “I believe a crime was committed” being said. The fact they couldn’t prove who did should put doubt that it was Tyreek.

    Shortly after all that when he wasn’t in the home he had cameras installed supposedly showing video of Espinal there essentially passed out drunk when she was the only adult home with the child as well.

  19. lol. first take already had a graphic with Hill’s picture for some debate about who the best WR in the NFL was. They had AB, Julio, OBJ, hopkins, and Hill in the graphic.

    you can’t help but laugh. took a weekend and boom, he’s already in the ‘who is the best’ discussions for the morning shows.

  20. Why do Cheifs fans think anyone is jealous of their team? What have they accomplished that would make anyone be jealous of that team?

    I’ll wait for a legitimate response, doubtful I’ll get one.

  21. Any smart chiefs player, and the chiefs seem not to have many, wouldn’t say a word about
    Hill because it is a no win situation. Though, Andy, I am to stupid to understand how a play clock works, is demonstrating why he is a failure as a coach and now a person along with the chiefs organization (Mr Hunt).

  22. Maybe he should have his daughter hang out with him. Then look after his grandkids. Then we will see.

  23. Love the court of public opinion based on nothing other than what the media tells you.

    You are what’s wrong with the world today.

    I bet the ones wanting Hill to be suspended are the ones who never listened to the whole recording. Just to what the media told you to believe.

    Do you still believe Hillary is President? Cause the media told us that too.

  24. Bottom line is that NONE OF YOU know what actually happened. But hey, how you all feel is more important to the truth. Think about it…the legal system could not charge him, child protective services found no wrong doing on his part, the NFL says he is fit to play. But hey, all of you keyboard warriors know best. You know more than the rest of us. I am so glad his fate didn’t rest in the haters hands. GOOOOOO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!

    “…Andy, this is why you will never win a Super Bowl.”

    ++++++++++++++++++++

    I wouldn’t be so sure about that. Goodell seems committed to making it happen.

  26. Whatever. It’s over, he’s going to play, no use getting upset about it anymore. I hope they don’t give him back his kid though, clearly not a safe house to be in for that child. We are on the season.

  27. Bunch of over dramatic uninformed crybabies in this comment section.
    Name your team and I will name a criminal on it. Don’t sit here and pretend you don’t support them all. Problem is anyone who followed the case knows what was really going on. I feel bad for the kid who has to experience all this. The kid broke his arm in an accident that’s a fact.
    The mom got mad when tyreek cut off her family and was gonna leave her. Another fact. She devised with friends a plan to secretly record tyreek and make him look bad to force him to “pay up”. When that didn’t work they released the recording to a station that did a great job in editing it to sound worse and leaving out half of what was on it. Once the whole tape came out it not only changed the narrative on this incident it also called into question his past charges which she refused to talk about. Hill calls her out for making that all up. She doesn’t defend or dispute that. He produced plenty to prove his innocence and she hid behind a lawyer and refused to dispute anything.
    Bottom line is she tried for the extortion but failed miserably.

  28. So no due process for him? People are so easily influenced by one-side of a story…none of you would accept this if you were to be indicted.

  29. Translation: He’s a horrible person, but I’ll enable him because he’s good at football.

  30. You delusional Chiefs fans need to learn the difference between “could not gather enough evidence for a conviction” and the likelihood that someone who has been a domestic abuser before and told his baby momma that she needed to be scared of him is “innocent”.
    Seriously. Open your eyes.

  31. Innocent until proven guilty is only applicable in a court of law. Not one of us is obligated to hold that standard unless we’re a judge or selected to serve on a jury. It seems obvious that Hill is a dirtbag and should not have the privilege of being paid millions of dollars playing a game. We’re absolutely free to hold that opinion and to voice it.

  32. Oh cry cry cry. Man I sometimes wonder how you people actually survive your own ignorance day in and day out. Tyreek and his son will pray for you all.

  33. Silver an black,lol nobody fears or respects you clowns,remember last season carr was sacked and was crying,lol lol!

  34. So the chiefs are “welcoming back with open arms” a guy that beat up his pregnant girlfriend. And they just gave a $100 million contract to another guy that beat up his girlfriend, Frank Clark. No one will be rooting for this trash team any time soon…..

  35. ” We have trust in Tyreek Hill.”

    Translation…We need him to have any chance at SB,so…

  36. “We have trust in Tyreek Hill”

    Let me fill in the blanks….”Because he’s such a fast and game changing playe, We have trust in Tyreek Hill.”

    There….that’s better.

  37. I used to be a big AR fan but he just seems like a clown anymore. Looking back on it his complete lack of discipline of McNabb is why they never won a Super Bowl until after Andy left (lots of the players he drafted or brought in did win)

    McNabb would be the worst player on the field 4 games out of 16 most years (sometimes 8 out of 16) and Andy was cool with it until the benching in 2008. Brady did not get to be great because Belichick went easy on him and gave him special treatment.

    I now wish nothing but the worst for Reid and the whole Chiefs organization. Its OK to allow someone like Ray Rice back on a technicality. Its not OK to praise a monster because he can run fast.

  38. Reid added “Sure, you might point to his history of admitting violence against a pregnant woman and him still threatening her on tape, but I’d like to point out he runs about a 4.2 so I trust him.”

  39. Everyone here who doesn’t like this roster decision who has taken a shot at Andy Reid because his son died of a drug overdose needs to take a hard look in the mirror. I am no KC or Reid or Tyreek Hill fan, but for God’s sake maybe try to show a little more humanity than you are claiming to be lording over anyone else. I doubt most of you are parents, and if you are, I doubt you’re as stellar as you claim based on the personality deficiencies you’ve shown here in this thread.

  40. Remember all the do-gooders who went on record as saying the Chiefs MUST cut Tyreek Hill right after the story broke??

  41. As Andy Reid should welcome Hill back, having not being found guilty of wrong doing. It is wise to not alienate your player based on convictions from the comment section judges.

  42. After getting rid of Kareem Hunt, they cannot afford to get rid of Tyreek Hill. It is that simple.

  43. He will be traded before the season starts. Destination: To the man that drafted him. John Dorsey/Cleveland. Hill will be the slot receiver and return man.

  44. We can go back n forth if Tyrick Hill is innocent or guilty but when you heard him talk in that Audio and how he said word for word You better be scared of me shows what type a person Hill is and for the Chiefs to sit there show support is very disturbing in my opinion

  45. Wow, the POTUS actually said some pretty bad things on tape too, but you elected him…smh. Hypocrites!
    The evidence was not there and he could have been saying things to get a rise out of her. If you notice, you all seemed more scared of Hill than she did! Sometimes things are just between couples and it’s only for them to understand. Of course you have the right to express your opinion, but most you want him in jail and losing all of his money while the due process was applied correctly that was set down by our forefathers. It’s a shame that people only apply American principles when it fits their stance and ignore it in situations like this. You can’t have it both ways. So every time a kid breaks an arm or leg, the parents should go to jail without due process and lose their job? Is that how we’re doing things?

  46. People actually taking about karma. Gimme a break. What did karma due for Belicheat, Brady and Edleman? Oh, okay!

  47. Wow, the POTUS actually said some pretty bad things on tape too, but you elected him…smh. Hypocrites!

    Best summary I have heard so far! VERY WELL WRITTEN!!! Hit the nail on the head!

  48. After listening to that audio, it’s amazing that KC fans still defend him, though aiming a laser at an opposing QB is apparently ok also. So I guess it’s a low bar for human behavior in KC.

  50. Listen to the whole audio and read the transcripts of their Texts. He was setup and she admits it. Police found no evidence, NFL found no evidence.

    What makes you so sure he meant physical harm and not money or something else? He also said that he took the fall for hitting her when he didn’t actually do it. How do you interpret that? The truth is, you don’t know these people nor the dynamics of their relationship.
