So let me get this straight…you turn down 20m a year for 30m a year when you have domestic problems and a wife with Munchausen by proxy…you leave a highly stable team with a highly stable support environment……………………for Miami???
…….anyone old enough to remember what happened when Mike Tyson left his highly supportive trainer?….I do……..

As much as some may hate, love and the wait and see opinions, this viewpoint pretty much sums it up..

Maybe said below

But I doubt Veach would have restructered Thuney knowing this was going to happen

nearly 29 million in cap available now

Nothing wrong with that, though. I’d hope we are planning to keep Thuney forever.

I think they see Thuney as contingency to Brown deciding he wants a ton of money, TBH.

The Chiefs knew for weeks (at least) that Hill was gone.

Tyreek might have known even longer. It could’ve been the reason he pulled up in that Pro Bowl race trying not to get a stupid injury costing him millions…

the more I think about it, the more I agree with Berserker (say what?!?!?) in that I feel better about the Chiefs now (with the cap space and the extra draft picks) than I did before the deal went down …

Chiefs still have Mahomes, Kelce, Juju, a stellar offensive line, 30M+ in cap space, and a ton of draft picks. You are wrong if you think this automatically takes us out of SB contention. We’re still 5 months from camp. Relax.

I heard he turned down 20 million per year from Chiefs. It’s hard for me to believe he left for the money but he did.
It’s like Jerry Rice leaving Joe and that never happened.

03/23/2022 5:39 pm

I can see it. Because I’d bet he feels like he sorta missed out on his last contract, because that was lower than it should’ve been due to his domestic problems.

Anyway, having performed like he has, and kept his nose clean after a very difficult time, and coming off a team-friendly contract…I can’t blame him for feeling like his time has absolutely come to cash in, because I’d feel that way in his place.

8+M a year? 32M over four years? You’d pass that up to stay someplace? No, I don’t think so.
2M, maybe. At that point, it’s in the noise. But 8M? Let’s be real

Veach must have known re-signing Tyreek was a problem, but we let Pringle walk anyway. Now we have Dr. Hands, a JuJu and some guy trying to save his career? How is our receiver doing that we drafted last year? Oh he’s gone. Yep, things are all rainbows and unicorns in the kingdom.

Then blow out the lines, bud. Do all your bitching and moaning so we can get on with figuring out how to best move forward and jump back into the SB mix.

03/23/2022 5:01 pm

Juju is an upgrade over Pringle. Possession/YAC guy.

If we can get a competent starter to play the X-WR spot, then we could very well have a more versatile and better overall WR corps than we had last year.

I liked Pringle. A lot. But he wasn’t the answer with Hill to decoy. Without him? Really not the answer.

Zero hard feelings to Tyreek.

I’ll continue to cheer for him to have success (except when he plays the Chiefs)

He needs to keep playing well for a long time to have a shot at becoming another Hall of Famer for the Chiefs.

Tyrone
03/23/2022 3:48 pm

Sad. It’s always sad when a player unwanted to see play their whole career for the Chiefs and possibly become a hall of famer for the one team, go.

But I would have been sick if we gave a WR 120 million over 4 years.

Lots of picks. I wish the first was a little higher, or some of the others were a little higher, but maybe that’s greedy.

Need to make the most of these picks now. More Creeds, fewer Clydes.

They weren’t making it with Hill either. This team is swiss cheese right now, so this is the means to a greater end. Speed has a shelf life, like Wayward has pointed out. I can’t help but think KC got out at the right time.

Agreed, do you get Seth’s “Chief in the North” newsletters? The last one, just a couple days ago, might’ve been the most pessimistic I’ve ever seen him be, talking about team needs and construction. I wonder how he’s feeling about the team now.

Jones was good, but he had a down year didn’t he? Wonder if he’s wearing down. Might rather bring back McKinnon. Hell, I hope they bring back McKinnon whether or not they sign anybody else.

well, tyreek May have gotten what he wanted but I hope he realizes he does not have Mahomes throwing to him anymore and I doubt if Tua Will be able to get the ball to him as many times as Mahomes did. don’t want to hear him bitching when his numbers go down either.

see my point? it’s about TEAMWORK just as much as it is about individual players … why is it so hard for YOU to get THAT?

The Chiefs lost to the Bengals because Mahomes had the worst half-game of his career.

Now, think about that. Mahomes played bad, everybody else might’ve been playing good*, and the whole TEAM lost. So, this is a prime example FOR the QB being by far the most important player of all.

*(for all we know, since it’s tough to tell whether the rest of the offense is playing any good when the QB is playing bad, since the QB is so much more important than anybody else)
