Rumors were swirling that the Miami Dolphins would trade for Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs have given their offensive coordinator permission to trade Hill after stalled talks on Wednesday. The deal makes Hill the highest-paid wideout in the NFL. He spent his first six seasons with the Kansas City Texans and made the Pro Bowl in each of them. He has accumulated 6620 receiving yards and 56 touchdowns.
Earlier this week, the Dolphins made a serious trade for Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Rapoport reported that the Chiefs gave Hill’s agent permission to seek a trade. They would be willing to pay him $120 million over the next four years and make him the highest-paid wideout in the league. The deal would also guarantee him $72.2 million per season.
The Chiefs and Hill both wanted to sign a contract extension, but the AFC West has become a tougher division with more teams competing for the AFC championship. This deal will be a major blow to the Chiefs’ playoff hopes, as Hill’s departure will make the AFC West a much stronger division. Nonetheless, the deal will clear $18 million in salary cap space for the Kansas City team.
The contract includes a $43.9 million base salary and a $50 million cap hit. The team could potentially reduce this amount if it decides to restructure in the future. The Chiefs, who were in the midst of contract negotiations with Hill, were reportedly hesitant to move forward until they knew that the Miami Dolphins had an offer. In return, the Chiefs got a 2023 first-round pick.
The deal is a major win for the Dolphins. The Chiefs will be able to use the money they received from Hill’s contract to improve their team’s offense. The Miami Dolphins also acquired two first-round picks in the 2017 draft. However, Hill’s signing will require significant work in the upcoming two seasons. Despite this potential win, the new season is likely to be a disaster. The Miami Dolphins won’t be able to compete for the Super Bowl.
The Miami Dolphins’ deal for Hill has created a lot of excitement. The two teams were expected to add another wide receiver during the 2019 NFL draft and in free agency. But the Miami Dolphins traded for Hill because he was already linked with the Chiefs. The move has been a big win for both sides. But it has also caused some controversy. While the Dolphins have made the most headlines this offseason, the Chiefs have a similar strategy to the way they do business.
