On June 10th, 2022, Tyreek Hill dropped his podcast, “It needed to be said.”

Hill talked in detail about why he left the Kansas City Chiefs as well as his new teammates, Jaylen Waddle and Tua Tagovailoa.

 

Hill was joined by his lawyer and co-host Julius Collins as well as his agent Drew Rosenhaus. Rosenhaus talked about how great of a player and person Hill is. “Not only is he the fastest player in the NFL, he has the biggest heart,” said Rosenhaus.

Hill gave nods to his former teammates in Kansas City and said he ultimately wanted to stay in Kansas City, but felt slighted. In his last year with the Chiefs, Hill felt like he was being underutilized in the Chiefs system.

 

Rosenhaus spoke about how Hill felt throughout his last year stating, “after a number of games, Tyreek and I would communicate and it was frustrating that he wasn’t given a chance to do more and help the team in their efforts to win games.”

 

After the end of the season, Hill and Rosenhaus felt that he had outplayed his contract and wanted to sign an extension. Ultimately, the Chiefs didn’t want to pay Hill even 25 million. 

Hill even mentioned that his grandfather was having surgery in Georgia for prostate cancer at the beginning of the 2021 season, and the Chiefs didn’t want him to fly out to visit. Despite this, he said this wasn't a shot at anybody. “I love Andy Reid, I love Patrick Mahomes... I love Travis Kelce, I love all my former teammates,” said Hill.

 

He spoke on Tagovailoa and Waddle saying, “Tua has been a great quarterback to play with [and] Jaylen Waddle has been everything that everyone has said: fast, explosive, great guy outside of playing football.” 

 

He spoke more on Tagovailoa after saying, “I’ve had a chance to see Tua throw the ball to myself… like he’s that dude bro," said Hill." I’m not just saying that because he’s my quarterback. He has a heck of an arm, he’s accurate, he can throw the deep ball and he actually goes through his reads.” 

 

When asked who had the better arm between Mahomes and Tagovailoa, Hill said “Obviously I’m gonna go with 15 but as far as accuracy wise, I’m going with Tua all day. I want it to hit me right in the bread basket just like I did in the Buffalo Bills game and take it 70.”

Hill joins Waddle as an extra offensive weapon for Tagovailoa next season.
