The Kansas City Chiefs long ago moved from the wide receiver Tyrick Hill, when they sent Dolphins to Miami in the off-season for a package of drafts that helped them become younger and deeper in everything.
Hill didn’t do the same in Miami.
In his debut podcast last week, Hill claimed that the Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was more precise than his colleague from Kansas City, Patrick Mahomes, who was selected for the Pro Bowl every four years as the starter and MVP of the 2018 league.
Hill also claimed he didn’t get the ball enough and wasn’t used properly in Kansas City – a covert blow to coach Andy Reed – although he saw a record 159 goals and 9.4 per game and caught 111 assists for 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns last season. .
So, while the Chiefs finished their obligatory three-day mini-camp on Thursday and tried to look forward to the start of the training camp in a little over a month, they were again drawn into conversations about their former teammate.
“I’m a little surprised,” Mahomes said of the content in the podcast, which also included Hill’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and his co-host and lawyer, Julius Collins. “I still love him. I saw him in Formula 1 in Miami. I’m sure it all had to do with getting some things out of his podcast and getting started.
As for wanting the ball more in a dynamic Kansas City attack? Mahomes has never heard of it during the season.
“Definitely new in terms of how it was on the podcast,” he said. “When you are a competitor like him, and what I liked about Tyrik – you want to win. I know he wanted the ball as much as possible to help us win.
Mohammed largely rejected the rest of the podcast, including the section on its accuracy, noting that Kansas City played four consecutive AFC championships, reached two Super Bowls and won one of them with him under center.
“It simply came to my notice then. “As long as we win football matches and bring points, I do things the right way,” he said. “As long as we get touchdowns and win Super Bowls, I’m fine with that.”
Reid was on the main road when asked about the podcast, saying only: “I love Tyrik. He is a good child. “
