Tyreek Hill Talks Retirement and Chiefs Revenge Game this Season
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill joined former Chiefs teammates Anthony Sherman and Gehrig Dieter on a podcast on Wednesday and had some very interesting things to say. Hill discussed the revenge game against the Chiefs this season at Arrowhead in Kansas City. However, it was the claim that retirement is right around the corner that caught everyone’s attention.
“I’m going for 10, man,” Hill said in reference to 10 career seasons. “I’m gonna finish out this contract with the Dolphins, and then I’m gonna call it quits. I want to go into the business side. I want to do so many things in my life, bro.
“So I really want to get into like the gaming space. I really want to get huge in that, and that’s kind of what I’m doing right now. I’m using my platform to create a gaming team, which isn’t launched yet. It should launch by the end of this month. I’m gonna just sign like different content creators and different athletes. I just been working that, talking to different sponsors.”
Hill is just 29 years old and will be 31 in the 2025 season. The speedster signed a four-year, $120 million contract with the Miami Dolphins after the Chiefs traded him to Miami. However, the Dolphins could save $45 million on the salary cap if they release Hill after the 2025 season. If Hill is still on the roster in 2026, it would cost the Dolphins $56.3 million against the cap.
So, when Hill says he will finish this contract, the presumption is that 2025 will be the end of that deal and maybe his time in the NFL.
Still, it’s weird to consider Hill calling it quits in just a few years. Hill’s production did not take a hit in his first season with the Dolphins. He caught 119 passes for 1,710 yards and was targeted 170 times in the first season of Mike McDaniels’ offense in Miami. However, I get the desire to take his massive earnings and his retirement plan from the NFL and begin the next chapter of his life.
So, Hill’s 2023 trip to Arrowhead may be his last regular season visit to Kansas City. Fittingly, he told his former teammates that he was going to hit the Chiefs with his signature peace sign:
“Chiefs Kingdom, when the Miami Dolphins come to Arrowhead Stadium this year, guess what we gonna do?” Hill told his former Chiefs teammates, Anthony Sherman and Gehrig Dieter, via FanNation. “Guess what we gonna do? I hate to say it, man … hate to throw up the peace sign against y’all. I hate to do it! But guess what? I’m gonna be y’all worst enemy that day. I’m gonna be y’all worst enemy that day.”
