REPORT: Chiefs “Could Try To Trade” WR Tyreek Hill Depending On Contract Negotiations

Talks on a long-term deal between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tyreek Hill had ramped up during the offseason but talks stopped after allegations arose of him possibly abusing his child.

Hill will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2019 season and talks of a new contract had reportedly hit a cross roads and has nothing to do with his off-the-field issues.

“Here’s what Jay Glazer wrote in a mailbag for TheAthletic.com, several weeks after he called the shot of the offseason by predicting that Odell Beckham could be traded: “[T]here were questions in Kansas City about whether they could re-sign Tyreek Hill. I heard some rumblings at the start of free agency that his name was being thrown about in trade talks, but at the time thought it had to do with his contract more than anything else.”

The Chiefs used a second round pick on Georgia WR Mecole Hardman, who is widely compared to Hill. It was assumed that the Chiefs traded up tog et him because of the contract situation with Hill.

Andy Reid has even gone on record as stating that he believes Hardman could have the same impact as Hill has had.

He’s got that same explosive power,” Reid said of Hardman in May, regarding comparisons to Hill and DeSean Jackson, whom Reid coached in Philadelphia (and also drafted in round two). “Now, DeSean was probably a little bit further along then Tyreek was at the position — [Hardman] is probably closer to where Tyreek was coming out as a wide receiver. DeSean was a phenomenal route runner coming out. You’ve seen the growth with Tyreek, and I think you’ll see it with this kid. But he catches well, he’s got great, secure, hands, and he can run like a son of a gun.”
