In his first interview since Hill’s comments were released, Mahomes was asked what his former teammate had to say about his time with the Chiefs. What he heard seemed to take him by surprise.

“I’m a little surprised just because I thought we loved Tyreek here,” Mahomes. told reporters on Thursday. “We have always loved him, we still love him. I saw him in F1 in Miami and all, but I’m sure it has something to do with trying to get his podcast up and running. But definitely I still love Tyreke. He is a one of a kind player.”

If you missed Hill’s comments, he made them on debut episode of his podcast on the weekend. During the show, Hill said that his relationship with the Chiefs was starting to fall apart because he didn’t get the ball enough.

“If teams are going to give us favorable one-on-ones against their best corner, I don’t see why teams don’t use their best receiver,” Hill said. “And that’s where, probably, me and The Chiefs fell apart right now. When I’m like this, yo, I don’t want to talk or be a diva in some situation, but can I see the pill sometime, please? Just give me the ball, please.”

Hill’s agent Drew Rosenhouse added that the wide receiver sometimes felt “underutilized” in the 2022 season.

According to Mahomes, the reason Hill got the ball less is because the defense was more dependent on him.

“When you’re an opponent, the way he is – that’s what I liked about Tyreke and still like, that he wants to win – and I feel like given what we were getting, the defense really took him into account. , so we had to go elsewhere,” Mahomes said. “But when he is such an opponent, you want to have a chance to influence the game. So I know he wanted to get the ball as often as possible to help us win. This was not a selfish act. winning football games, especially at the end of the season, so I don’t think he really paid our attention to it, but now we just move forward and continue to work with the guys that we have, and we try to continue to win football games.

Mahomes also noted that Andy Reed’s offense is not based on passing the ball to just one person.

“As you know, Coach Reid’s offense involves the whole team,” Mahomes said. “This attack has been going on since before I got here. This attack started when I was a young Cowboys fan watching the Eagles beat the Cowboys. This is an offense involving more than one player, including me.”

Another thing Mahomes said is that he won’t take Hill’s complaints to heart.

“That’s what I’m sure he’s trying to show that he loves where he is in Miami,” Mahomes said. “He loves his teammates.”

If Hill got upset about his touches in Kansas City, it could create embarrassment in Miami because things could get worse there. Hill finished with 111 catches in 2021 and it won’t be easy to top that number considering he’ll be playing offensive line with Jaylen Waddle, who caught 104 passes in 2021.

Only two teams in the last 10 years (2014 Broncos, 2018 Steelers) produced two receivers who finished the year with at least 100 receptions in the same season, meaning it’s highly likely that either Waddle or Hill will see their production decline in 2022. Essentially the same complaints by Hill. made about the chiefs, there may soon be complaints that he also makes against dolphins.

Hill also said that Tua Tagovailoa more accurate pass than Mahomes, which is interesting to say, considering he has yet to play a game with his new quarterback. Unfortunately for football fans, the Dolphins and Chiefs won’t play each other this year unless they meet in the playoffs.
