Dolphins’ Tyreek Hill admits to being betrayed by the Chiefs despite building relationships with Patrick Mahomes & Co. in Kansas City


Tyreek Hill and his Kansas City Chiefs saga are one of the highlights of the NFL world. Despite parting ways with the current Super Bowl champion team, the Cheetah have a strong case against the Chiefs. The Miami Dolphins wide receiver came up on a recent podcast called CTESPN with Antonio Brown and poured his heart out about leaving the Kansas City Chiefs.

His words highlighted how the WR at one point felt ignored by his team because they weren’t trying to keep him at all. This might have been especially difficult for the Super Bowl-winning WR, considering that his relationship with Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes has been a remarkable friendship. Nevertheless, the positive thing about the trade was that it made him one of the highest-paid wide receivers in the league.

In the recent CTESPN podcast, most of the episode revolved around Tyreek Hill and how unapologetically he showed his emotions. He wasn’t shy about being vulnerable with everyone. This led to one of the most anticipated answers, which related to Antonio Brown’s question about Hill’s move from the mighty Chiefs to the presiding Dolphins in 2022.

From the looks of it, while the 8x Pro Bowler seemed pleased with the shift, there were some aspects of leaving the Chiefs that left him with a chip on his shoulder. Hill calculatedly but emotionally responded: “I’m trying to figure out what emotion I had. It wasn’t an angry feeling, because if I’m about to dump a lot of money on you, why would you be angry? You should be damn cheerful, or my emotion was probably more, I’d say… abandoned, you feel me? said the Cheetah.

This was in response to “How do you come to a decision like, yo, I just want to leave the best team, like I don’t want to be here anymore?” put forward in an unpolished manner by Antonio Brown.

Hill did not end his admission there. He added: “Because it was a feeling of okay, you can do whatever you want there in Kansas City. I don’t really know how to explain that it was like that, it was like okay, you can go do that, you want to look for a trade…” But addressing the money issues, Tyreek Hill explained early on exactly how he was traded to the Dolphins and why.

Remember when the Cheetah took off I am an athlete podcast? He laid out the complete scenario and the ‘disappointment’ goes even deeper. Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid assured him the Chiefs will do that “take care of him,” but the opposite happened, and they did not have to think twice before parting with him.

“Pat called me first. Me and Pat call: ‘Just like Reek, we’re going to take care of you, brother.’ Then Andy called me: ‘Hey man, we’re going to take care of you.’ I said that’s fine with me. It could be $24 million as long as the money sounds good, or $25 million as long as it’s guaranteed to sound good, that’s all I want. Their final bid was almost $58 million guaranteed,” said the WR

After all this happened, Hill’s agent Drew Rosenhaus came up with a plan that made him one of the richest receivers in the league when he got the offer from the Miami Dolphins, who were willing to pay him $70 million. Another reason Hill chose to move to Miami was because Florida has no income tax and it was Hill’s dream to play in Miami. From the looks of it, the lateral was a blessing in disguise for the receiver as he turned the Dolphins into one of the fastest offenses in the league.
