Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek
Hill said Friday he did everything in his power to remain with the
Kansas City Chiefs but that the team wouldn’t come close to his contract
request.

Hill and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus,
detailed the period leading up to the blockbuster offseason trade on
the wideout’s new podcast, It Needed To Be Said, saying a
conversation with Chiefs head coach Andy Reid failed to yield the
desired outcome.

“I’m like, ‘Hey Coach, yo like, I
ain’t even gotta be the highest-paid, for real. I
just want to be put in like a realistic position that’s like
realistic for me and my family,'” Hill said. “I don’t gotta get
$30 million. At least get me 25, 26. … Numbers wasn’t even close to
that.”

Rosenhaus added Reid asked Hill
directly whether he wanted to stay in Kansas City, which the six-time
Pro Bowl selection confirmed was the case, but the Chiefs’ offer still came up “millions of dollars short” in guaranteed money.
