Dolphins star Tyreek Hill shockingly says he will retire after ending his current contract

Tyreek Hill is one of the most exciting players in the NFL, but if you want to see him play you better do it soon as he may not be around for much longer. The Dolphins wide receiver, who is enjoying the best season of his career, is already thinking about retirement and apparently plans to retire much sooner than expected.

During an interview on the Totally Offensive podcast this week, Hill was asked how much longer he wanted to play and he gave a very surprising answer. The 29-year-old playmaker, who has just completed his seventh season, has just three more years to play.

“I go for 10,” Hill said. “I’m going to finish this contract with the Dolphins and then I’m going to end it.”

If Hill ends up playing 10 seasons, that means he would retire after the 2025 season.

There’s no guarantee Hill will stick to that schedule, but if he does, it’s definitely shocking news for an electrifying player like Hill, who’s still at the top of his game. During the 2022 season, Hill caught 119 passes for 1,710 yards. Not only were those two numbers career highs, but they also tied for second place in the NFL.

If you’re wondering how serious Hill is about stepping down, he seems quite determined and the most telling sign is that he already knows what he wants to do with his life after football.

“So I really want to get into gaming,” Hill said. “I really want to grow up and I’m doing that right now. I’m using my platform to create a gaming team that hasn’t started yet. It should start by the end of this month. I’m just going to sign different content creators, different athletes. I was just working on it and talking to different sponsors.”

Hill also mentioned that he might want to get into the “business side” of football and might even consider working as a coach.

“I want to do so many things in my life,” Hill said.

During the lengthy interview, Hill also touched on several other topics. In addition to speaking out about the retirement, Hill also revealed what prompted him to request a swap with the Chiefs in 2022. And if Kansas City fans are looking for someone in charge of the swap request, that person should probably be Christian Kirk.

Following Kansas City’s loss to the Bengals in the AFC title game, Hill received a call from his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, asking him if the recipient was interested in a new contract this offseason.

Hill’s answer?

“Let’s see what happens in the off-season and then we’ll move on,” the receiver said.

After Kirk signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Jaguars, Hill was determined to get a new contract that surpassed Kirk’s.

“Christian Kirk made a crazy deal,” Hill said. “He signed a deal and surpassed me and … I’m not going to give Christian Kirk a higher contract than me. That’s not me. It’s just not me.”

The Chiefs didn’t want to pay his asking price, which led to his trade request. At the end Hill was shipped to Miamiwhere he signed a four-year, $120 million extension.

The Dolphins are scheduled to play the Chiefs this year and Hill is already looking forward to that matchup. The game is expected to be played in Kansas City, and if all goes according to plan for the receiver, he’ll flash his patented peace sign against his old team.

“I hate to say it, I hate to throw the peace sign at you guys,” Hill said. “I hate doing this, but you know what? I will be your worst enemy that day.”

Though he won’t be cheering for the Chiefs when they play the Dolphins, Hill still seems to like the team that drafted him. The receiver said he saw Kansas City of Japan’s Super Bowl win and stood up for his old teammates like Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.

“I was in Tokyo watching the Super Bowl, so I was watching and just happy for my boys,” Hill said. “Even though I wasn’t a part of it, I still feel like a part of it. Watch [Mahomes] and Kelce win. Watch after [Andy Reid] getting another Super Bowl ring to add to his amazing head coaching career… it felt good to see the boys win.

Hill didn’t get a Super Bowl ring this year, but he did make the playoffs with the Dolphins, meaning he’s now been in the postseason seven times in his seven-year career, including 2019 when he won a Super with the Dolphins Bowl won bosses.
