Travis Kelce is still in the corner of Tyreek Hill even after the Chiefs were eliminated
Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce sees big things for former Miami Dolphins teammate Tyreek Hill.
That Kansas City bosses are gearing up for another season hoping to make it to the Super Bowl. But their offense will look different as the 2022 season begins, as their offense will be without wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who was traded to the Miami Dolphins this off-season.
In the debut episode of the podcast “New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce”, The Chiefs tight end said fans will see how good Hill will be as a member of the Dolphins.
“He’s the real deal. Listen, best receiver in the league, I’ve been saying it for four or five years,” Kelce said. “He never got full respect for how good he was as a wide receiver. And I think it was because our offense was one of the best in the league, Pat was one of the best in the league and I was at the top of the tight end board. And it was just, oh, we’re a tandem, that’s why we were so good. I think this year we’ll see exactly how good Tyreek is and how good this offense can be without such a big playmaker.”
Travis Kelce sees big things for Tyreek Hill with Dolphins
Hill began his career with the Chiefs in 2016 and his first breakout season came in 2017 when he logged 1,183 yards and seven touchdowns on 75 receptions, with Alex Smith throwing the ball to him.
Apparently, the attention of the Chiefs offense was focused on Hill, Kelce and starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Now Hill is not in the equation for Kansas City entering the 2022 season.
After contract negotiations fell through, the Chiefs explored trading Hill to a new team. The Dolphins were able to secure him in exchange for five draft picks, including a 2022 first-round pick. Hill then signed a four-year, $120 million contract extension with Miami.
Now Hill is joining an offense led by new head coach Mike McDaniel, who was the former offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers in 2020 and 2021. Hill’s quarterback is Tua Tagovailoa, who has had trouble breaking out alongside draftmate Joe Burrow, and Justin Herbert despite his success in Alabama. Hill has hyped Tagovailoa on numerous occasions this offseason, sometimes at the expense of Mahomes.
It will be interesting to see how Hill performs in his debut season with the Dolphins. But Kelce sees big things from Hill.
