Before off-field issues put the career of Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill in limbo, talks on a long-term deal had begun. Forgotten in the events of the past four months is the fact that those talks may have hit a snag, unrelated to the off-field issues.

Here’s what Jay Glazer wrote in a mailbag for TheAthletic.com, several weeks after he called the shot of the offseason by predicting that Odell Beckham could be traded: “[T]here were questions in Kansas City about whether they could re-sign Tyreek Hill. I heard some rumblings at the start of free agency that his name was being thrown about in trade talks, but at the time thought it had to do with his contract more than anything else.”

Tyreek Hill speaks out after avoiding punishment from NFL Tyreek Hill thanked fans and his family, and promised to be the "best father" he can be.

As the controversy over Hill continued over the last few months, the Chiefs wisely made as few public comments about it as they could. But if the structure of Hill ’s eventual contract contains the kinds of provisions Corry has laid out, it would speak volumes about the risk the Chiefs perceive in keeping

Is Tyreek Hill 's career over ? What Tim Hill -directed film combines live action with CGI? How many people on the sidewalks of San Francisco can one run over before anyone would take any action to prevent one from doing that?

It’s possible that the Chiefs had caught wind of what may be in the pipeline from a legal standpoint and explored cutting and running, but it’s hard to imagine coach Andy Reid deliberately sandbagging another team about a situation that, at the time, could have jeopardized Hill’s 2019 season and possibly beyond. So it’s possible that Hill simply wants more than the Chiefs are able or willing to pay, given that they soon will be both breaking the bank and blowing open the vault for Patrick Mahomes.

Contract talks are expected to resume soon regarding Hill. If there’s an impasse, a trade becomes one of the options, either in before the 2019 deadline (less likely) or in early 2020 (more likely, if the Chiefs decide to take that path).

Phil Mickelson after missed cut: ‘I’m playing so bad I don’t know what to say’

Phil Mickelson after missed cut: ‘I’m playing so bad I don’t know what to say’ After opening the British Open with a 5-over-par 76, Mickelson posted a 74 in Friday’s second round to miss his third cut in a row , his fourth in his last five starts and his seventh overall since winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February, his 44 th PGA Tour victory. "I'm playing so bad that I don't know really what to say," said Mickelson, a five-time major champion and a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. "I thought after winning Pebble I was going to have a phenomenal year and the last four months have been surprisingly difficult.

Tyreek Hill (born March 1, 1994) is an American football player for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL). He attended Garden City Community College, Oklahoma State University, and University of West Alabama.

News came on Friday the Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill is not the subject of an active criminal investigation. If anything, the portion of the report indicating that Hill has admitted to spanking the child with his hands and with a belt will make more susceptible, not less susceptible, to a suspension.

The wildcard in all of this is rookie receiver Mecole Hardman. It was assumed when the Chiefs traded up to get Hardman in round two that he had become the Tyreek Hill short-term contingency plan. What if Hardman was actually the long-term contingency plan?

If Hills seeks (and he arguably deserves) $20 million per year, the Chiefs have Hardman under contract for four years at a total payout of less than $5 million. And coach Andy Reid already has made it clear that he believes Hardman could have the same impact as Hill has had.

He’s got that same explosive power,” Reid said of Hardman in May, regarding comparisons to Hill and DeSean Jackson, whom Reid coached in Philadelphia (and also drafted in round two). “Now, DeSean was probably a little bit further along then Tyreek was at the position — [Hardman] is probably closer to where Tyreek was coming out as a wide receiver. DeSean was a phenomenal route runner coming out. You’ve seen the growth with Tyreek, and I think you’ll see it with this kid. But he catches well, he’s got great, secure, hands, and he can run like a son of a gun.”

British Open: Tommy Fleetwood is up to challenge of chasing Shane Lowry

British Open: Tommy Fleetwood is up to challenge of chasing Shane Lowry A bogey free 5-under 66 has given Fleetwood the chance of winning his first major trophy. The 28-year-old is 12 under par and needs to come from four shots behind the Irishman to win the 148th Open Championship at Royal Portrush. He can become the 15th English Champion Golfer of the Year if the stars align in the final round. Justin Rose has an outside chance. He's seven shots off the lead at 9 under. Lee Westwood is another shot back. Danny Willett is 7 under. No one is surprised Fleetwood is in the last group at Royal Portrush on Open Sunday.

If Hardman can deliver on that potential, it gives the Chiefs leverage in their talks with Hill, and choices in the event the Chiefs decide that it makes sense to do with Hill in 2020 the same thing they did with Ford in 2019: Apply the franchise tag, and then trade the player.

That approach would give the Chiefs a chance to evaluate Hardman for a full year in practices and games, with Hill possibly becoming the Alex Smith in this scenario — and Hardman becoming (if he can check all the boxes) the Mahomes.
