About Tyreek Hill
Tyreek Hill is a wide receiver for American football for the Miami Dolphins (NFL) of the National Football League.
The Kansas City Chiefs chose Hill in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. In his six years in the league, he was selected for six Pro Bowls and named to the 2010 NFL All-Decade Team as a punter.
Hill was traded to the Miami Dolphins on March 23, 2022, in exchange for The Chiefs’ former first-round 2022, second-round 2022, fourth-round, and sixth-round 2023. With the San Francisco 49ers, the second roster of the year 2022, the second selection for 2022, two selections from the fourth round, sixth selection in 2023.
Hill signed a four-year, $120 million contract, which included $72.2 million guaranteed as part of the trade, making him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL.
The Statement Made By Hill
After receiving the richest wide-out contract in NFL history this offseason, the newly acquired Dolphins receiver got a taste of Tagovailoa.
After playing with both franchise quarterbacks, Hill feels Mahomes’ arm power has peaked, but Tagovailoa has superior accuracy to Kansas City’s star quarterback.
On his podcast “It Needed To Be Remarked,” Hill said, “I’ve got a chance to witness Tua throw the ball to myself.”
In an episode of the “It Needed to be Said” podcast, featuring Hill and buddy Julius Collins praised Tagovailoa’s accuracy over Patrick Mahomes.
Hill’s point of view does agree with the data, but only somewhat. Tagovailoa has a completion percentage of 66.3 percent, while Mahomes has a completion rate of 66.2 percent. Last season, the Dolphins quarterback had a slightly higher completion rate than Mahomes (67.8 to 66.3).
In addition, the former NFL MVP has started three times as many games as Tagovailoa, 63 to 21. So only time will tell if Hill’s assertion is right.
Despite being injured in the second game of the season, Tagovailoa outperformed his rookie season in practically every statistical category.
Tagovailoa now has a new, and better, component to throw to on offense in the form of Hill, a Pro Bowl receiver.
Furthermore, Tagovailoa was recently criticized on social media for a shaky throw to Hill during practice.
Tagovailoa’s ability to throw the ball down the field was questioned by new Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel on June 2, especially with quick wide receivers like Hill and Jaylen Waddle becoming more prevalent in the system.
Mike replied saying that Today, he could have had a 55-yarder. He’s quick enough, and the best part is that he sees the field. He’s not going to chuck the ball 85 yards unless having the finest offensive line in football history and a defense that isn’t good enough to add rushers while you’re at full strength.
In Tagovailoa’s third year, there will be bigger expectations. He passed for 2,653 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in 13 games last season. Since the 2016 season, Miami has failed to make the playoffs.
