Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill reportedly was on the trading block at the start of free agency before news broke of his alleged battery incident.
According to The Athletic, there were some “rumblings” that Hill’s name was thrown out in trade talks. The report added the belief was the negotiations “had to do with his contract more than anything else.”
Hill’s future now is unclear while police are investigating two separate alleged altercations at his home, according to the Kansas City Star. A previous report indicated Hill was under investigation for battery following an incident involving his son. An unidentified source close to Hill’s fiancee told The Star the incident resulted in the child suffering a broken arm.
The wide receiver publicly hasn’t commented on the situation, but the team released a statement earlier this week, saying: “The club is aware of the investigation involving Tyreek Hill. We’re in the process of gathering information and have been in contact with the league and local authorities. We’ll have no further comment at this time.”
Hill, 25, caught 87 passes for 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns for Kansas City in 2018. He was selected by the Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2016 draft.
