Tyreek Hill is one of the most polarizing players in the NFL. While he's immensely talented, he also recently faced allegations of child abuse, though the NFL did not find sufficient enough evidence to suspend him. Still, Hill's off-field history leaves the Kansas City Chiefs in a precarious position, as he's now entering the final year of his rookie deal, and could be in line for a massive extension.
As such, the Chiefs may be compelled to trade the impending free agent, especially since they drafted speedster Mecole Hardman in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. With that in mind, here are three potential landing spots for Hill if the Chiefs decide to trade him.
1. Baltimore Ravens
This offseason, the Baltimore Ravens have focused on surrounding second-year QB Lamar Jackson with some talented pass-catchers. The team drafted Marquise Brown in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, and he was one of the fastest WRs in his class. Pairing Brown with another burner like Hill, who racked up 1,479 yards receiving last year, could really open up Baltimore's downfield passing game.
2. Arizona Cardinals
The Arizona Cardinals are entering a new era in 2019, with a rookie head coach in Kliff Kingsbury and a rookie quarterback in Kyler Murray. The team has drafted a bunch of WRs over the past two seasons, including Andy Isabella and Christian Kirk, but neither player offers the upside that Hill does. Acquiring Hill would theoretically help Murray's development in Arizona, and if the Chiefs want to move the WR out of the AFC, the Cardinals could be a potential trade partner.
3. San Francisco 49ers
Another NFC West team looking to take a big leap in 2019 is the San Francisco 49ers. Jimmy Garoppolo will be returning to the team after missing most of last season due to a torn ACL, but outside of TE George Kittle, the 49ers don't have many established pass-catchers. Dante Pettis and Deebo Samuel look promising, though they're largely unproven at the NFL level. If San Francisco can pair Hill with Marquise Goodwin, the 49ers could have one of the most dynamic downfield passing games in the NFL. Adding a player like Hill could make the 49ers a force to be reckoned with in the NFC West.
