The Kansas City Chiefs have found themselves in some unfortunate situations as of late. Last season, they were trucking along in the AFC when they figured they had to make a decision on their star running back, Kareem Hunt. As Hunt had an off-field incident come to light via TMZ, the Chiefs knew that they had to make a big-time decision. Either they hold onto Hunt, and take heat for it. Or they cut him loose and take the loss. They ended up doing the latter, which looked good on their behalf.
Now, the Chiefs find themselves in a similar situation regarding their star wide receiver, Tyreek Hill. Will the Chiefs continue to set an example? Or leave that entire Hunt situation as a one-time thing? Decisions, decisions…
Overland Park police said Monday they are investigating two alleged incidents, including a reported battery, at the home of Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill and have forwarded a report to the local prosecutor’s office.
Hill has been involved in an investigation after police took reports of a battery and child abuse or neglect earlier this month at his Overland Park home.
The Kansas City Star reported that Tyreek Hill had been involved with a recent incident that included his son. Nothing has been confirmed yet as everything is still under investigation, but it seems like the NFL and the Chiefs are waiting to hear about what’s going to happen to Hill so they can figure out what their next step is going to be. Apparently though, Hill was already a potential trade candidate for the Chiefs before his recent incident came to light. According to NFL Insider Jay Glazer, there were some rumblings about Hill’s availability via trade. Since the Chiefs are under the assumption that Hill’s going to want an expensive contract, there’s a possibility that the Chiefs move him to obtain some value for the wideout before losing him for nothing. Considering that Hill now has an issue involving a potential suspension looming over his head, it could give the Chiefs even more of an incentive to trade away their superstar wide receiver. Don’t be surprised if Hill’s availability sparks some more trade talks.
Released Audio Sheds New Light
The Kansas City Chiefs should cut bait and release wide receiver Tyreek Hill immediately, after hearing an audio clip that relates to the alleged child abuse involving him and his three-year-old son.
Hill won’t be charged for the incident, but that doesn’t vindicate him. An 11-minute audio clip has surfaced, and the recording has Hill speaking with his fiancee, Cyrstal Espinal, about their son’s broken arm, and how it might play out legally in the form of a police investigation. Based on the child custody rights for fathers in Oklahoma, Hill’s ability to maintain custody of his son may significantly be impacted by this event.
And it’s not good.
Espinal can be heard discussing how their son said “Daddy did it,” and Hill also was heard saying this:
“You need to be terrified of me, too, b—-.” he said.
Hill may be the most dynamic, speedy receiver in the NFL, but the Chiefs — especially after what happened with Kareem Hunt — should cut him.
