Chief And Hill Agree To $54 Million Extension

Billy Woods | September 8th, 2019

The news out of Kansas City today will surely spark talks of a potential Chiefs dynasty. The Chiefs and wide receiver Tyreek Hill have agreed to a three-year extension worth $54 million.

The deal includes $34 million guaranteed, ranking him as the 10th highest paid receiver in that category. When looking at the yearly average, Hill trails only Michael Thomas of the New Orleans Saints. Even with the high yearly average, the extension is a team-friendly deal. The Chiefs simultaneously locked up a First-Team All-Pro wide receiver and a deadly return specialist in the same move. Hill is notorious for being capable of scoring from anywhere on the field.

Last season, Patrick Mahomes emerged as one of the best quarterbacks in the league, cemented by his league MVP for throwing for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns. The duo has shown flashes to be considered the best quarterback-receiver duo in the league.

Hill recorded 1,479 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. He also added 213 return yards with one touchdown. His return responsibilities were cut in half last season, but he’s still capable of taking a return to the house when given the opportunity.

The Chiefs are buying into a win-now mentality. With Father Time being undefeated, the decline of the New England Patriots is inevitable, if not this season, then soon enough. The extension of Hill and re-tooling of the Chiefs defense puts them in the run for a mini dynasty over these next few seasons.

Although Mahomes is on a big boy contract now, the team is still able to surround him with reliable talent due to their coaching and schemes. The Dallas Cowboys could learn a lesson from the Chiefs on how to create a modern system.

Hill signs the extension with the Chiefs in the aftermath of his alleged child abuse and the audio file that was released involving a fight between him and his girlfriend. Hill was not charged for the child abuse but was suspended from offseason practices for a period of time. The extension proves the Chiefs trust Hill, not only on but off the field.
