Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill traded to Miami Dolphins for five draft picks
WASHINGTON - The Kansas City Chiefs are trading WR Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins for five draft picks, including one first-round pick in 2022.
Miami is giving Hill a 4-year, $120M extension, including $72.2M guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Hill's agent Drew Rosenhaus.
According to Schefter, $72.2 million of Hill's contract becomes fully guaranteed at the start of the 2023 league year. The other $52.535 million is fully guaranteed at signing.
The Chiefs will get the Dolphins' first- and second-round picks along with their fourth-rounder in this year's draft, and fourth- and sixth-round picks next year, the person told the AP on condition of anonymity because terms were not announced.
The Chiefs had been in discussion with Hill on a contract extension in part because they were seeking relief from a tight salary cap situation. But the talks had stalled over the past few days, and Hill's representatives requested permission to seek a trade, which came together quickly with multiple teams expressing interest in him.
Hill's trade comes a few days after the Chiefs signed former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster on a $10.75 million deal for next season.
Last season, Hill, a six-time Pro Bowler, had a career high and Chiefs-record 111 receptions for 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns. He finishes his career in Kansas City with 479 receptions for 6,630 yards and 56 touchdowns.
