Tyreek Hill shockingly decided to leave the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason and now he has revealed that he felt the Chiefs weren't utilizing him enough. Hill has been one of the best and most productive quarterbacks over the last several years but he feels the Chiefs could have used him even more.
"If teams are gonna give us favorable one-on-one matches against their best corner, I don't see why teams don't utilize their best receiver," Hill said on his podcast, via CBS Sports. "And that's where probably like me and the Chiefs fell apart right there.
When I'm like, yo, I don't mean to talk or be a diva in some situation, but can I see the pill some time, please? Just give me the ball, please."
Hill signed a big contract with the Miami Dolphins
Hill didn't hide that he wanted to sign a big contract this offseason.
The Chiefs weren't willing to meet Hill's contract demands but the Dolphins were willing as they gave Hill a four-year, $120 million deal. "I tried my best. I talked to the big man, [head coach] Andy Reid. I talked to the quarterback.
I'm like, 'Look, can we make something happen? Can we make something happen? Can the guaranteed money make sense to me? Can it make sense to my family, please?'" Hill has made it clear that he feels he is a nightmare for opposing defenses and he wants his coach to give him his respect.
"I don't care about notoriety, though. I don't care about none of that. The only thing I care about is respect within the building. Notoriety outside the building, I don't care about none of that, man. Because none of that ain't gonna win us games on Sunday.
I want the head coach to know that on Sundays, that defenses fear Tyreek Hill. That's what I want the head coach to know. And the head coach do know that, though. He know that without the Cheetah on the field, he know that, 'Hey, Pat [Mahomes] you're gonna have a long day today.' "
