The NFL has made a ruling in the controversial case of Kansas City Chiefs star Tyreek Hill and some fans won’t be happy about it.
The league has decided that Hill will not be disciplined or fined for the child-abuse investigation or his comments on the secret recording that were made public.
It is therefore believes, as some sources informed Yahoo Sports, that the Chiefs — who suspended him from team activities the past three months as the matter reached a conclusion — will allow him to join his teammates for the start of training camp on July 26 in St. Joseph, Missouri.
In a statement released Friday morning, the NFL said, “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.”
It seems like the evidence Hill and his attorneys provided league investigators during an eight-hour meeting on June 26 was significant enough to discard the looming suspension above Hill’s head. The Chiefs have also seen the evidence.
It wasn’t however the first time Hill and his then fiancee Crystal Espinal were involved in a domestic abuse case. Hill pleaded guilty to punching and kicking Espinal during a 2014 incident- a decision that allowed him to avoid jail time and keep his NFL dream alive.
We can say that Hill has more than one life in the NFL it seems…
Hill was a key part of a Chiefs offense that carried Kansas City to the AFC Championship Game last season. He earned first-team All-Pro honors as a receiver after recording career highs of 87 receptions, 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns.
