The Kansas City Chiefs and wide receiver Tyreek Hill are reportedly working on a contract extension.
the Kansas City chiefs have two high-profile upcoming free agents in safety Tyrann Mathieu and offensive tackle Orlando Brown with over $11 million in cap space to work with. During the week of the NFL Combine, the Chiefs not only scout for college talent, they also negotiate a crucial part of their offense.
According to multiple reports, the Chiefs and wide receiver Tyreek Hill are discussing a possible long-term contract extension. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport notes that this contract renewal will be “more normal” in structure than his previous renewal.
Chiefs, Tyreek Hill discuss contract extension
Regarding Hill’s recent contract extension, Rapoport mentions that it was how Hill earned all his money due to several off-field incidents. Now he could be one of the highest-paid wide receivers in the league if they’re able to strike a deal.
Hill signed a three-year, $54 million deal in 2019. For the 2022 season, his last under his current contract, he’s looking at $20.7 million against the cap. He earns a base salary of $1.04 million and a $16.5 million roster bonus.
Last season, Hill recorded 111 receptions (a career-high) for 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns in 17 games. In Kansas City’s three playoff games, Hill hit 23 of 28 goals for 285 yards and three touchdowns.
The Chiefs and Hill are both discussing a new deal before the 2023 wideout hits free agency. It will be interesting to see what the numbers on his next deal will be if both sides agree to the terms.
