Chiefs, Tyreek Hill agree to contract extension


KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Kansas City Chiefs Friday morning announce the team has signed wide receiver Tyreek Hill to a contract extension.

Ian Rappaport with the NFL Network says the Chiefs and Hill agreed to terms on a 3-year, $54 million extention that, sources say, puts Hill among the highest paid wide receivers in the league.

“We’re pleased we were able to reach an agreement with Tyreek to keep him in a Chiefs uniform for the foreseeable future,” Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach said in a news release on the team's website. “He understands our expectations of him as a member of this team and community. This extension is contingent upon the conditions Tyreek agreed to adhere to upon his return to the team in July. Tyreek is an elite player in this league and has played a major role in our team’s success, and we’re pleased that he’ll continue to make an impact for us.”

Hill says he's appreciative of the team and Chiefs fans for supporting him.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue my playing career here in Kansas City,” Hill said in the news release. “Kansas City is my home, and I appreciate the love and support from Clark Hunt, Coach Reid and Brett Veach along with my coaches and teammates. To Chiefs Kingdom, you’re the best fans in the world.”
