Andy Reid Shares Hilarious Comment on Tyreek Hill
The Kansas City Chiefs are back in the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons, but there's something very different about their roster this year. Star wide receiver Tyreek Hill is no longer with the team after being traded to the Miami Dolphins last offseason.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked about Hill during Super Bowl Week and gave a pretty great answer.
Andy Reid Tyreek Hill Comments
Reid said he's happy for Hill because "he made a lot of money and gained a lot of yards," both of which are individual accomplishments. The implication from Reid is that Hill didn't win anything, though, and that Reid's happy he's in the Super Bowl right now instead of Hill.
"Cheetah" had a tremendous first season with the Dolphins, setting career highs in receiving yards (1,710), catches (119) and targets (170) despite no longer playing with Patrick Mahomes. Hill's gaudy stats didn't translate to impressive results for Miami, however, which went 9-8 and lost in the first round of the playoffs.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, didn't skip a beat without Hill, going 14-3 and claiming the No. 1 seed in the AFC. Mahomes had an MVP-caliber season without his former top receiver, too, so there is no love lost between the two sides.
Hill will watch his former teammates try to upset the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday as 1.5-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook's Super Bowl odds.
