The cheetah might be changing his colors.

Tyreek Hill, one of the fastest and best wide receivers in the NFL, and the Kansas City Chiefs are at an impasse in contract negotiations, and the franchise has given Hill permission to seek a trade, according to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Media.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter adds that the Jets and Dolphins are both engaged in “serious talks” with the Chiefs to acquire Hill and are the two finalists for the receiver.

As far as Hill’s replacement, Pelissero reports that they are hosting free agent wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling. No deal is “imminent,” he says, but the former Packers receiver is a speedster like Hill.

Whomever trades for Hill will also be on the hook for a blockbuster contract extension. Davante Adams is a relatively reasonable comparison, and Adams just signed for five years and $140 million, including over $65 million guaranteed, with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Tyreek Hill is on the trade block.

Hill, 28, caught 111 balls for over 1,200 yards and nine touchdowns last season with the Chiefs.

Hill has had some trouble off the field. In 2014, while at Oklahoma State, Hill was arrested for punching his pregnant girlfriend and choking her. He was charged with domestic assault and battery by strangulation and dismissed by the university. He ultimately pled guilty and received three years’ probation.

In 2019, Hill was investigated for child abuse after his then 3-year-old son suffered a broken arm. Shortly after the news broke, audio leaked of Hill’s fiancée Crystal Espinal saying that their son had said, “Daddy did it.” However, Hill did not ultimately wind up facing charges or NFL discipline in connection with the investigation.
