I’m really excited to see what he does in Miami, wishing him well.”

The Chiefs parted methods with the very best deep-ball receiver of this age, as Hill leads the NFL in 20-yard, 30-yard, 40-yard, 50-yard, and 60-yard goals given that going into the league in 2016.

The Chiefs will have a much various search offense without the existence of Hill, especially with the workers they got at pass receiver.
