Dolphins star Tyreek Hill shockingly says he will retire after running out of current contract

Tyreek Hill is one of the most exciting players in the NFL, but if you want to see him play, you better do it soon because he might not be around for very long. The Dolphins receiver, who is coming off the best season of his career, is already thinking about retirement and it looks like he’s planning to quit much sooner than expected.

During an interview on the Totally Offensive podcast this week, Hill was asked how much longer he plans to play and he gave a very surprising answer. The 29-year-old point guard, who just completed his seventh season, only plans to play three more years.

“I’m going for 10,” Hill said. “I’m going to finish this contract with the Dolphins and then I’m going to quit.”

If Hill ends up playing 10 seasons, that means he will quit after the 2025 season.

There’s no guarantee Hill will stick to this timeline, but if he does, it’s certainly shocking news for an electrifying player like Hill, who is always at the top of his game. During the 2022 season, Hill caught 119 passes for 1,710 yards. Not only were both of those numbers career highs, but they also ranked second in the NFL.

If you’re wondering how serious Hill is about retirement, he seems to be quite determined, and the most telling sign is that he already knows what he wants to do with his life after football.

“So I really want to get into the game space,” Hill said. “I really want to get huge in this and that’s kind of what I’m doing right now. I’m using my platform to build a gaming team, which isn’t launched yet. It should be launched by now. the end of this month. I’m just going to sign different content creators, different athletes. I’ve just been working on this, talking to different sponsors.

Hill also mentioned that he might want to get into the “business side” of football and might even consider becoming a coach.

“I want to do so many things in my life,” Hill said.

During the lengthy interview, Hill also touched on several other topics. Along with talking about retirement, Hill also revealed what led him to ask for a trade from the Chiefs in 2022. And if Kansas City fans are looking for someone to blame for the trade demand, that person should probably be Christian. Kirk.

After Kansas City’s loss to the Bengals in the AFC title game, Hill got a call from his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, who asked if the receiver was interested in getting a new contract this offseason.

Hill’s response?

“Let’s see what happens in the offseason and we’ll take matters into our own hands,” the receiver said.

After Kirk signed a four-year, $72 million deal with the Jaguars, Hill was determined to get a new deal that topped Kirk’s.

“Christian Kirk got a crazy deal,” Hill said. “He signed a contract and he outdid me and…I’m not going to let Christian Kirk have a higher contract than me. I’m not. I’m just not.”

The Chiefs were unwilling to pay his asking price, which led to his trade request. In the end, Hill was shipped to Miamiwhere he signed a four-year, $120 million extension.

The Dolphins are actually set to face the Chiefs this year, and Hill is already looking forward to that game. The game is set to be played in Kansas City, and if all goes to plan for the catcher, he will withdraw his patented peace sign against his former team.

“I hate to say it, I hate throwing the peace sign at y’all,” Hill said. “I hate to do this, but guess what? I’m going to be your worst enemy that day.”

Although he won’t be supporting the Chiefs when they face the Dolphins, Hill still seems to like the team that drafted him. The catcher said he watched Kansas City’s Super Bowl victory from Japan and was supportive of former teammates like Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.

“I was in Tokyo watching the Super Bowl, so I was watching and I was just happy for my guys,” Hill said. “Even though I wasn’t part of it, I still feel like I’m part of it. [Mahomes] and Kelce win. Watching [Andy Reid] getting another Super Bowl ring adding to his amazing head coaching career…it felt good to see the boys win.”

Hill didn’t get a Super Bowl ring this year, but he made the playoffs with the Dolphins, meaning he’s now made the playoffs seven times in his seven-year career, including 2019. , when he won a Super Bowl with the Chiefs.
