Instead of South Beach, Tyreke Hill almost transferred his talents to the Big Apple this offseason. Ahead of Sunday’s game between the Dolphins and the Jets, Hill said he was close to moving to the Jets via an off-season trade with the Chiefs. Hill ended up landing in Miami after the Dolphins and Chiefs pulled off a successful deal.

“It was very close to happening,” Hill said. through Miami Herald. “Just these government taxes, man. I had to make an adult decision.”

It’s safe to say that all parties involved are happy with the way things have turned out. The Chiefs received five draft picks, including 29th and 50th overall in the April draft. Despite Hill’s loss, the Chiefs start 3-1 after beating the Buccaneers 41-31 Sunday night. Patrick Mahomes remains at the top of his game as he completed 66.4% of his shots with 11 touchdowns and two picks in four games.

Hill and the Dolphins are also 3-1 after a 3-0 start. Hill fit right in with new Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel’s offense. He is currently tied for the league lead with Stephon Diggs with 31 catches and stands alone with 477 receiving yards. Hill also formed a formidable duo in Miami with sophomore Jaylen Waddle, who currently ranks fifth in the NFL with 381 receiving yards.

The Jets didn’t get Hill, but they acquired rookie Garrett Wilson in the first round of the April draft. The former Ohio State standout caught two touchdowns in New York’s roaring win over the Browns in Week 2. The Jets also received some serious effort from fellow strikeouts Corey Davis and Elijah Moore. The trio’s performance should increase with the return of Zach Wilson to the roster after he missed the first three weeks of the season while recovering from a knee injury.

The Hills Dolphins lost to the Bengals 27:15 last Thursday night. The Jets will head into Sunday’s game looking to build on the momentum gained from last Sunday’s 24-20 victory in Pittsburgh as New York closed a 10-point gap in four quarters.
