What does the new wide receiver change mean for the Kansas City Chiefs?

Updated: Jun 6

The Kansas City Chiefs made a shocking move this off season by trading one of their most valuable players in the person of the Cheetah, Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins.

The All-Pro wide receiver who's arguably the fastest player in the NFL was surprisingly traded to the Miami Dolphins for some draft picks and this stems down to the fact that the Chiefs weren't willing to offer him his long-awaited contract extension. The 28 years

old have made All-Pro in all the seasons he has played but particularly was in All-Pro first team in 2016, 2018 and 2020. Tyreek Hills in his career so far has 479 career receptions for 6,630 yards and 56 touchdowns in the 91 games played. He started 73 of those games and also has 719 rushing with 6 touchdowns.


What effect does the Tyreek Hill trade have on the Kansas City Chiefs?.


The Kansas City Chiefs have lost one of the men that made their second Super Bowl after a 50 years drought possible. Although the Chiefs brought in replacements like JuJu-Smith Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to replace Tyreek Hill, they might completely offer the offensive threat the Cheetah poses when on the field but they provide variable offensive options to the Chief's offence. With both players in their prime, the Chiefs might be the winner of this trade and they also have their future sorted with the draft picks they got from the Dolphins. The Chiefs might have lost their fear factor with the departure of Tyreek Hill whose presence terrorizes the opponent's defence and with him a majority of times, being marked by the opponent's best defensive player, he allows other players to thrive. Players like Travis Kelce being paid lesser attention tend to have a better game. The Chief's new additions have a big shoe to fill in.
