Tyreek Hill: 3 Possible Landing Spots for Chiefs’ Star Wide Receiver

The AFC West continues to look much different with each passing day. The Las Vegas Raiders, Denver Broncos, and Los Angeles Chargers have all added big-time talent to their rosters. The Kansas City Chiefs have been surprisingly quiet despite adding JuJu Smith-Schuster and Justin Reid. But now the Chiefs have given superstar wide receiver Tyreek Hill permission to seek a trade after extensions talks died out between the two sides.

If Hill leaves Kansas City for the first time in his career, that will shake up the AFC West even more and be detrimental for Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Hill’s time with the Chiefs looks like it’s reaching an unfortunate end, and where Kansas City goes from here remains to be seen. Nonetheless, here are three possible landing spots for Hill if the Chiefs do end up trading the speedy wide receiver.

Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins have been aggressive this offseason, and new head coach Mike McDaniel isn’t playing any games. The running back room is much improved, and the Dolphins added former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson, who can easily play a Deebo Samuel-type role.

Now, they appear to be players in the Tyreek Hill sweepstakes. It would be costly, but the Dolphins want to give Tua Tagovailoa the weapons he needs to rise to the next level after two mediocre seasons in the NFL. Plus, the Dolphins have an interesting tie with Hill.

Hill, Jaylen Waddle, Wilson, Mike Gesicki, and Chase Edmonds make for a pretty decent group of weapons for Tua to utilize, and the Waddle-Hill pairing would be one of the most dynamic WR duos in the NFL. The Dolphins added some protection up front for Tua by signing former New Orleans Saints star Terron Armstead to a huge contract.

All of that helps, and adding Hill would be the cherry on top of the Dolphins offseason cake.

New York Jets

Yes, the New York Jets are actively involved in Hill. This move makes a lot of sense also.

After drafting Zach Wilson No. 2 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, he failed to find a true No. 1 WR. Corey Davis didn’t pan out and Jamison Crowder is past his prime and has moved on to the Buffalo Bills. Elijah Moore started to come on at the end of the year, and Braxton Berrios emerged as a serious weapon in the passing game.

But adding Hill to this offense is exactly what the Jets need — a true superstar playmaker who can become Wilson’s primary beneficiary in the passing game.

The Jets have been surprisingly active in free agency in an under-the-radar way and are trying to build a competitive roster around Wilson.

According to Adam Schefter, the Jets are one of the two finalists for the star wide receiver.

Tyreek in New York would be something, and this should send Wilson’s numbers skyrocketing.

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have a massive hole at the WR position following Davante Adams’ blockbuster trade to the Las Vegas Raiders. On top of that, Marquez Valdes-Scantling is visiting the Chiefs following Hill’s trade request.

So, the Packers make a lot of sense, even if they aren’t a finalist. Plus, Green Bay got a pair of draft picks in the Adams deal and have the assets to make it work.

Aaron Rodgers would absolutely love throwing the ball deep down the field to Hill, and the NFC North would hate having to match up with Hill. Plus, the Chiefs probably want Hill out of the AFC altogether, so a move out of the conference might be their best option if the compensation package matches up.

Rodgers and Hill would be an electric duo, and the Packers would respond to Adams’ departure with a massive trade of their own.
