Tyreek Hill is not happy with the Kansas City Chiefs.
During an interview with Armando Salguero of Outkick, Hill blasted the Chiefs for trading him and throwing him aside like “trash” instead of paying him.
“The thing that really motivates me is my kids and my family first,” Hill said. “But I see a lot of guys who get paid and they’re just not hungry no more. But I feel like everything happens for a reason, dog. Looking at my situation back in K.C., I had a great situation, a great quarterback, a great head coach, great teammates, great everything but, like I say, everything happens for a reason.
“And a lot of guys when they get paid, they stop wanting to get better. And I feel like when the Kansas City Chiefs traded me I kind of took that personal. So now what really motivates me is I feel like they basically just threw me to the side, like I was trash or something.”
In March, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told the media that trading Hill was the only realistic option after the sides made no progress in contract talks.
“We came in aggressive [with an offer], and after we got to a point, we just said, ‘Listen, in this day and age you have issues you have to deal with with the cap.’ So we felt like it was better to allow him to go ahead and be traded,” Reid told reporters.
Hill ended up signing a four-year, $120 million contract extension after his trade to Miami,
