Tyreek Hill to Join Team for Offseason Workouts

 49 replies

Tyreek Hill is planning to join the Kansas City Chiefs today as they begin the off-season workout program, as reported by Ian Rapoport. While not an indicator of either guilt or innocence, its hard to imagine the Chiefs would have him joining the team for official activities if they had any indication that the ongoing investigation had turned up any information suggesting Hill was involved in child abuse.

Like everything else that has happened since the KC Star broke the story, we are left to assume that no news is good news. Where there is smoke there is fire, and I haven’t seen any smoke from Hill, the Chiefs, or authorities. Meanwhile the reporter who originally broke the story regarding Hill’s investigation is unfortunately out of town, providing a convenient excuse to continue not updating Chiefs fans on the progress of the story she rushed into print exactly one month ago today.

Flame away Chiefs fans. Time’s yours.

Tyreek Hill, who is being investigated by local authorities for an incident at his home

Serious question here. Did I miss something? Last I knew, authorities were looking into an incident that happened at his home. I’ve seen nothing official that says that Hill himself is being investigated. Am I just missing something, or do we just have another case of reporters misleading the public?

Allow me to put it this way; even if you have read the initial report, you haven’t missed any news that has any substance to it.

I was surprised to see this ESPN alert. Of course he’s going to be at team activities. While this is a “good” story, the fact that it’s a story makes me nervous.

The “alert” did its job, then.

that original Star story seems more and more like blowing up smoke to get some clicks.

I’d urge patience here. No need to pontificate on things we can only speculate about.

Oh, you should never, never doubt what nobody is sure about.

It’s hard to blame Brooke for not being there, because she just got married. Come on now.

No one is blaming Brooke for getting married. She is getting blame for being an unprofessional reporter. She has, on several occasions now, put her name on stories that were either wildly overblown, or just flat false. The only reason her absence was brought up, is that she is unavailable to comment on why Tyreek is with the team during OTA’s despite having allegedly broken his sons arm.

Yeah I get why people are upset with her. I am too. I know this is an unpopular take here, but I’m not a fan of this type of phrasing. It’s fairly misleading that she’s hiding from Chiefs kingdom. It’s the same type of wording we are mad at her for. Let’s be better than that.

Several occasions? Do tell? I mean, I’ve read that same sentiment before about her, but I’ve never seen a list of examples. So would appreciate if some more well informed person(s) would inform me.

Why wouldn’t he show up? he hasn’t been charged for anything and considering how long this has been going on (in modern times ages). I’m still not sure if Hill is in the chiefs long term plans. Yeah he is dynamic on the field, but the amount of $ he will demand is alot for a WR. Recent headlines though may have hurt the maximum value for return if the chiefs were to trade him.

sportingchiefs

My thinking behind the process was that if something was going on, the Chiefs might ask him to stay home until everything sorts itself out to prevent conflict of interest, etc.

I don’t think so. Everyone has stated they’re waiting for police action. What would be the point of holding Tyreek out? If anything it would just serve as fuel to the fire, coupled with one if your main guys not getting reps and bonding time with team.

After everyone said they’re waiting for cops due diligence, I don’t see how they could take any action other than having him report without looking like they have egg on their face or know bad news.

BleedingRedAndGold

But are the police even the ones handling the investigation?

ChiefArrowhead

I honestly have no clue if it’s police or child protection or who. I guess instead of police I should have said authorities.

I just think there’s so much uncertainty and over exaggerations made that no one knows what’s what.

Armychiefj

Speaking in generalities and not about Hill’s case specifically, its almost certainly both. These are two parallel but different processes going on. A CPS investigation is intended to figure out what the family needs are to keep the children safe and hopefully keep the family together in the long term (even if the children needed to be removed from the home immediately). The police investigation is about determining if a crime took place and whom should be charged.

Berserker

But that’s all assumptions.

To simply state that there’s an investigation by “local authorities” without bothering to specify which authorities, at best that’s irresponsible and lazy journalism.

That was exactly my question after I read the post. Which “local authorities?” The police? Child Services? The Chiefs? The Star’s investigative crack squad?

Presumably the Chiefs are well informed of his situation. At this point it seems implausible that they would allow Reek to participate in OTA’s if it appeared likely he was involved in a child abuse incident.

Technically he’s not even being investigated (at least no news has broke that he is). An indecent at his home, that he may or may not be involved in, is being investigated.

BleedingRedAndGold

^^^ This all day, and why hasn’t it been greened already?

Yeah, I agree that the Chiefs probably shouldn’t have him in their long term plans, for purely football reasons.

One reason is that he depends on his speed, a lot. And speed tends to fade fast with age. Maybe Tyreek’s a physical freak who will keep all his speed for the next five, six years. But, that’s a risky chance to take for the Chiefs.

And then like you said, he’s going to get paid a ton. And if a team is going to make a WR into a franchise player, then it should probably be a team that does NOT already have both an elite QB and a genius offensive coach. Hill should be worth more to a team that really needs his help to compensate for lacks at QB and/or OC.
