Former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill has decided to press pause on his podcast during the NFL season.
For the first time in several months, Tyreek Hill has decided that nothing more needs to be said. The former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver reportedly made the decision to put away the microphone and other podcast equipment for another day with the NFL season coming up.
Hill released the first few episodes of his new podcast, It Needed To Be Said, earlier this offseason, after the Chiefs traded him to the Miami Dolphins in a blockbuster deal that netted the franchise five draft picks in return. According to reporter Barry Jackson, Hill stated that he’s hitting the pause button (pun intended) on the podcast until February to “focus on football.”
For years, Hill was a model teammate in Kansas City with a Hall of Fame-worthy trajectory on the field and a quiet demeanor off of the field, especially after he was falsely accused of abuse by his former partner. However, once the star wideout was traded to Miami, a switch was flipped and he was suddenly very interested in sharing his side of the story of his tenure with the Chiefs.
With the release of a few podcast episodes, Hill suddenly began to burn bridges with some members of Chiefs Kingdom for the sake of making controversial statements that would draw listeners into his new venture. While he also praised his former teammates and spoke highly of his time in K.C., he also questioned his usage and made odd comparisons with his current quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Patrick Mahomes. In response, Mahomes said he was “surprised” by the comments.
The podcast had an offseason run of 10 episodes and featured guests like Jake Paul, Byron Pringle, and more.
