Tyreek Hill is one of the most dynamic receivers in football, but his behavior off the field has been appalling. The Kansas City Chiefs receiver slipped in the NFL Draft due to domestic violence allegations, and he's currently in a legal battle over the custody of his son.

The latest allegations against Hill allegedly abusing his child are horrifying. But it seems things are only getting worse now that some audio from a conversation between Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, has leaked, where Hill discusses what happened with their son.

The NFL has mangled domestic violence cases in the past, and they need to get this one right. Simply put, behavior like this has no place in the modern NFL, and if this is proven true, Hill should be banned from the NFL for at least a year and maybe longer.

Adrian Peterson was suspended without pay in the 2014 NFL season over child-abuse allegations. Similarly, he had abused his son, admitting to using a switch to discipline him. The Pro-Bowler had to apply for reinstatement before he was allowed back into football.

The leaked audio paints a terrifying picture of Hill's domestic life, and the NFL should respond accordingly. If Peterson was forced to miss most of an entire season (his suspension began in November), Hill should receive at least that, if not more, from the NFL.
