Chiefs star Tyreek Hill’s camp wants to revisit contract talks ‘as soon as possible’
Tyreek Hill has avoided a suspension from the NFL after child abuse allegations against him were thrown out, and now, his camp is seeking a quick contract extension with the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, a source with knowledge of the situation says Hill’s camp hopes to revisit contract talks “as soon as possible.”
Hill is entering the final year of his deal and is scheduled to make just under $2 million in 2019.
Earlier on Friday, James Palmer of NFL Network reported that it would be “several weeks if not months” before contract talks between Hill and the Chiefs started back up, so it doesn’t appear that Kansas City is following the same timeline as Hill. At least not at the moment.
Back in March, controversy began to surround Hill after he was hit with child abuse allegations following his three-year-old son suffering a broken arm. The child was then removed from the home of Hill and his fiance.
A recording then surfaced of Hill threatening his fiance, which did not exactly help his case.
However, due to medical examiners ruling that Hill’s son’s broken arm likely resulted from a fall rather than abuse, the case was thrown out, and Hill was able to evade a suspension from the NFL as a result.
The 24-year-old is coming off of a 2018 campaign in which he hauled in 97 receptions for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns en route to a Pro Bowl appearance and a First-Team All-Pro selection.
Hill has made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons.
