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 denies wrongdoing in secretly-recorded conversation

Tyreek Hill denies wrongdoing in secretly-recorded conversation Chiefs fans may come away with a different outlook on the Tyreek Hill investigation after they hear an 11-minute audio recording. The Johnson Country District Attorney's criminal investigation into child abuse involving Hill and his fiancee, Crystal Espinal, ended with no charges filed. KMBZ sister station 610 Sports obtained and aired the full audio of a conversation between Hill and Espinal, which was appears to have been recorded without Hill's knowledge while the two were on vacation in Dubai. The couple was talking about corporal punishment.

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).

NFL does not suspend Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill

NFL does not suspend Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill We now know the NFL's decision on Hill.

With Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill they are. Two weeks into the season, the Chiefs keep creating long touchdowns. He's been on the field for over 80 percent of the Chiefs ' offensive snaps and has 14 offensive touches in two games. That puts him on pace for 112 touches this season, 27 more than

The Kansas City Chiefs ’ Tyreek Hill is the most explosive player in the NFL, and it took him just two seasons to get a large portion of the football-watching world to buy into that notion. Specifically, Hill was asked about Mahomes’ ability to scramble outside the pocket and look to make plays all over the

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.”

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.

Chiefs' Tyreek Hill leaves practice with quad contusion.
Tyreek Hill leaving the practice field in a cart was a scary sight at Chiefs training camp on Tuesday. But just for a few moments. After a hard collision with cornerback Bashaud Breeland at the catch point, Hill remained on the ground before making his way to the injury tent. From there, he rode in a cart to the practice facility for further evaluation. Hill had suffered a right quadriceps contusion, the team announced after practice. Tuesday marked the first day back in practice for Breeland, after suffering a lacerated thumb on Saturday. “My eyes weren’t on it when it happened,” Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said.
