Delusional Tyreek Hill Proves He's Learned Nothing From Chiefs Exit

Stop me if you're heard this before, but Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill is in the news for reasons unrelated to his on-field play.

Following a record-setting contract extension for Vikings WR Justin Jefferson, Hill reportedly requested a deal similar to Jefferson's $35 million per year contract. Just in the second year of a then-record extension with the Dolphins, Hill's comments appear to have fallen on deaf ears.

As a result, the former Chiefs' standout is walking back his comments and insists he doesn't want to be selfish.

Tyreek Hill Contradicts Himself in New Contract Reports

"That's his job," Hill said referring to his agent Drew Rosenhaus. His comments stand in stark contrast to his actions with the Chiefs prior to the infamous trade that landed Kansas City Trent McDuffie and several other key contributors.

If Hill is to be taken seriously, that means his request for a new contract would be false. Given his history, I find it hard to believe he hasn't floated the idea of a reworked deal in response to Jefferson's contract. It's certainly possible, though it's unlikely.

Brett Veach and the Chiefs accurately predicted that Hill's selfishness was a barrier towards perennial contention. To say the least, it's worked out well. Kansas City won each of the two Super Bowls since trading their All-Pro, defeating Hill's Dolphins in the AFC Wild Card round this year.

Perhaps Hill learned from his mistakes and doesn't want to jeopardize his team's ability to win just to get a payday. His actions suggest otherwise but we should find out soon either way.
