Tyreek Hill was extremely loud on social media during his former team’s AFC Championship win over the Baltimore Ravens. Once the outcome was confirmed, the Miami Dolphins great congratulated Patrick Mahomes II and Andy Reid on X.

“15 and Andy know how to win games,” Hill remarked, using Mahomes’ jersey number.
Later, he admitted that he is “sick for Lamar [Jackson] though .”

Tyreek Hill Explains Loving Rivalry Between Dolphins & Chiefs

 

Hill has been nothing but respectful to Mahomes and Kansas City since the Wild Card loss at Arrowhead Stadium, but there have been reports of tension between the playmaker and his former teammates following the trade that took him to Miami.

The “Cheetah” explained the new Dolphins-Chiefs rivalry earlier this season, which is more love than angry. He originally clarified the situation on the November 9 episode of his podcast, “It Needed To Be Said.”

“That is one thing about me, guy. “I’ll talk trash, but I’ll also give credit where credit is due,” Hill said at the time, revealing a nice conversation with Chris Jones following the loss in Germany.

“That defense, they fly,” he said. “They get to the ball—even on my first screen throw. When I grabbed that first pass, normally I can make the first guy miss, but I caught it and Willie [Gay] was just shooting quickly.”

Hill went on to say that “the banter that I had with Pat [and] the banter I had with Chris Jones this offseason when we were going back and forth with the trash talk… it’s friendly banter.”

“If I actually had a beef with somebody, you would never know about it,” the wide receiver continued. “I’d like to keep all of that under wraps, behind the radar. That’s between me and you, and I’d like us to handle it as men.”

Having said that, Hill has expressed an interest in intensifying the Chiefs-Dolphins rivalry for the good of the sport.

“I feel like this is football’s new rivalry,” he told reporters on November 5. “So it was a great day to play football in [Germany]. “I had a great time.”

Mahomes had a similar perspective on this friendly competition before of round one of the 2024 playoffs.

“I mean, we’re competitors,” the star quarterback remarked of his current relationship with Hill. “I have that fire, that competitive fire when [I’m] on the football field and he’s the same way — that’s what makes him so great.”

“We’re still buddies in the offseason and everything,” Mahomes said, “but when you play on the field, you want to win. That’s just how things are.

If there was any bad blood between Hill and the Chiefs, it appears to have been resolved as the new year begins. Hill’s recent social media posts reveal that the Super Bowl champion wide receiver is content to see Kansas City prosper without him.

Or, if he does, he wants no one to know about it.
