A day after placing TE Travis Kelce on the COVID list, the Chiefs have added WR Tyreek Hill. And there's likely more coming. "It's a mess," a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter, referring to the spread among the team right now. We'll see how the week goes for K.C. ... and our fantasy football rosters. Kansas City also placed TE Blake Bell and CB Rashad Fenton on the list Tuesday.
The Chiefs are trading WR Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins in exchange for the 29th overall pick of this year's draft, plus 2022 2nd- and 4th-round picks and 2023 4th- and 6th-rounders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hill will reportedly get a contract extension from Miami that will make him among the highest-paid WRs in the league. His fantasy value takes a hit with the move. He goes from QB Patrick Mahomes to QB Tua Tagovailoa and from a pass-heavy offense to what figures to be a more balanced offense under new Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel. Hill remains arguably the most electric playmaker in the NFL, though, and should garner a big target share in Miami. He's still a WR1. The Chiefs, meanwhile, are currently left with WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman, Josh Gordon, Justin Watson, Cornell Powell and Corey Coleman. They figure to add to the group in free agency and/or the draft, but Smith-Schuster and Hardman gets sizable boosts with Hill's departure.
Update: Miami is giving Hill a 4-year, $120 million extension with $72.2 million guaranteed, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus. That $30 million per year puts Hill a couple million ahead of new Raider Davante Adams for highest-paid WR.
The Chiefs have given WR Tyreek Hill permission to seek a trade, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 2 sides have been working on a long-term deal, and Kansas City has reportedly made an offer that would make Hill 1 of the league's highest-paid WRs. But "talks have stalled," Rapoport says. The Dolphins have been among the most interested teams so far, Rapoport adds. We'd be surprised if the Chiefs let Hill get away but will certainly keep a close eye on the situation. In likely related news, Kansas City is hosting free-agent WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling on Wednesday.
Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter tweets, "Jets and Dolphins are in serious talks to trade for Chiefs’ WR Tyreek Hill, per league sources. Hill and Chiefs are mulling what to do but Hill’s time in KC looks like it could be coming to an end."
NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs have entered contract talks with WR Tyreek Hill. The 28-year-old is scheduled to count ~$21 million against the cap in 2022, a contract year. 2021 produced 1,239 yards and 9 TDs on a career-high 111 catches. He carries a Round 1 ADP in early best ball drafting.
Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) is not listed on the final injury report for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers. He was a full-go on Wednesday, limited on Thursday and full again on Friday. Hill should be ready to play his usual role this weekend.
Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (heel) was downgraded to limited participation in Thursday's practice after being a full-go on Wednesday. We're guessing that Kansas City is just playing it safe ahead of Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Steelers, but we'll get another update on Hill on Friday afternoon.
