No Suspension For Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill

The NFL will not suspend Chiefs star Tyreek Hill after its investigation into allegations of child abuse. Here is the league’s statement, in full: 

Over the past four months, we have conducted a comprehensive investigation of allegations regarding Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Throughout this investigation, the NFL’s primary concern has been the well-being of the child. Our understanding is that the child is safe and that the child’s ongoing care is being directed and monitored by the Johnson County District Court and the Johnson County Department for Children and Families.

In conducting our investigation, we have taken great care to ensure that we do not interfere with the county’s proceedings or compromise the privacy or welfare of the child in any way. The information developed in the court proceeding is confidential and has not been shared with us, and the court has sealed all law enforcement records. Local law enforcement authorities have publicly advised that the available evidence does not permit them to determine who caused the child’s injuries.

Similarly, based on the evidence presently available, the NFL cannot conclude that Mr. Hill violated the Personal Conduct Policy. Accordingly, he may attend Kansas City’s training camp and participate in all club activities. He has been and will continue to be subject to conditions set forth by the District Court, Commissioner Goodell, and the Chiefs, which include clinical evaluation and therapeutic intervention. 

If further information becomes available through law enforcement, the pending court proceeding, or other sources, we will promptly consider it and take all appropriate steps at that time. ​

With that, Hill should be a full participant in training camp and on the field for Week 1 of the 2019 season. From a football perspective, it’s a huge win for the Chiefs – last year, Hill nearly reached 1,500 yards receiving, averaged 17.0 yards per grab, and gave opposing defensive coordinators nightmares.

      Well one Peterson is not dead and two Peterson admitted that he did it and 3 there was no evidence that Hill did anything and it in fact look like Crystal did it.

      Not really AP admitted to still beating his kid but without the tree branch and the nfl was cool with it just gotta make sure you can’t connect point a to point b

    Finally! A case where they do their due diligence and the player is not guilty until proven innocent

      • Ironman_4life

        Lol @bencole. On may 22 you called this dude trash and said he should never see the kid again. Take off the flip flops dude.

    • CursedRangers

      It is good to see, but it is so unlike how Goodell has handled these types of cases in the past. Hoping that the league keeps players innocent until proven guilty is something that holds true moving forward. If not, they need to come up with a consistent way of handling these cases. Right now it reeks of favoritism when compared to the Zeke situation

        Everyone tends to forget that Elliot was on video pulling down a womans shirt, that obviously didnt want that to happen, as well as being named in a couple of other issues all at the same time, hence the suspension.

      Are you on crack? They even had an audio clip of him threatening his fiancée and we also like the kid with his arm in a cast. Obviously a key fan this is deplorable oh wait I forgot you’re a Chiefs fan deplorable means absolutely disgusting oh wait I forgot again cheese fan probably don’t know what disgusting means that means what is happened is sick.

    • KCChiefs3485

      For what? Saying words? There is the context to consider as well. Should she be terrified because he would beat her? Should she be terrified of him because he has a lot of dirt on her. Sounds like it was the latter. You could possibly say the former if he didnt spend 6 minutes of the recording talking about how he didnt do anything in 2014 and she lied on him. She didn’t ever dispute that. FYI.

        For breaking his sons arm and threatening his girlfriend on a recording. Or are we gonna wait for him to go all Jovan Belcher? GTFOH

        • KCChiefs3485

          Except that there is a report that states the childs arm was broken as the result of an accident, consistent with what would happen if you extended your arms to brace a fall.

          As far as the threatening part, i covered that in my previous reply.

        • KCChiefs3485

          If she was so sure of something happening, why did she repeatedly refuse to meet with investigators both law enforcement and NFL?

          The answer is easy, as it was stated in the letter his attorney wrote…they have proof that she was making up allegations because she didnt want him to leave on the brink of a NFL payday.

      Ahhhh. Soon your town will replace man hole cover with maintenance hatch cover hang in there bud

    Guaranteed this guy will do something else to get suspended this year. Guaranteed.

    • Ironman_4life

      Guaranteed this guy was on your favorite team you would be on his side. Guaranteed

    Don’t know that hearing the whole recording exonerated him completely, but it certainly casted doubts from what most of the media was trying to portray by editing it.

    • KCChiefs3485

      I think hearing the parts regarding the 2014 incident where he finally denies it and says she lied about it…along with her not disputing she lied about it….lessens the impact of the “you should be terrified of me too b****” part of it. It more than implies that the meaning is related to him having info on her she doesnt want out.

    I have said all along it’s not what you do it’s the logo on the side of your helmet and this just proved it. They had many reasons to suspend him but chose not to meanwhile they had an investigator actually say Ezekiel Elliott did nothing wrong so what did the NFL do wire that investigator to hire another one just to say he felt Elliot was wrong even though there was no evidence and he got a six game suspension. No one can tell me the commissioner does not play favorites based on what team you play for.

    wait so brady gets suspended with no evidence and was a much different situation the NFL is a joke

  6. greg7274

    Who decides what comments arent allowed to post?
    If an innocuous joke about all the panty-twisting that’s gone on over this story… is too edgy for some busy body mod… then maybe there’s no point in even opening the comments on the app?
    I mean, if all the comments aren’t here, why bother?
    Less clicks… less money… seems like a sound business model.

    • greg7274

      this one makes it… (eye roll)
      but where’s the other?… hmm?? so “bizarre”…

    Two important parts of the leagues response that people need to understand:

    “based on the evidence presently available, the NFL cannot conclude that Mr. Hill violated the Personal Conduct Policy.”

    “If further information becomes available through law enforcement, the pending court proceeding, or other sources, we will promptly consider it and take all appropriate steps at that time.”

    Sooooo, what we have isn’t enough to suspend him but the case is not closed and if something becomes available to us to think otherwise we’ll act upon it and he could then be suspended for this.
