For a second straight year, the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl despite the absence of Tyreek Hill, traded to Miami before the start of the 2022 season. While his former teammates celebrated another title, Hill assured everyone the world that he was doing very well in Miami.
“We’re living our best lives in Miami,” Hill wrote on X. “Don’t worry either, our time is coming.”
Both parties have continued to prosper since they split. As the Chiefs continued to win, Hill continued to rack up numbers and All-Pro nods. Hill’s 238 receptions and 3,443 receiving yards since joining the Dolphins are more than any other player in that span. He also caught 20 touchdowns for the Dolphins, including a league-best 13 last season.
Miami has enjoyed modest success as a team since Hill’s arrival. The Dolphins made the playoffs each of the last two years, but were eliminated quickly after losing to Buffalo and Kansas City, respectively. Last January, Hill had five catches for 62 yards and a score in Miami’s Super Wild Card Weekend loss to the eventual Super Bowl champions.
They may have gone their separate ways, but Hill and the Chiefs will always be linked. Hill, after all, made the key third-down catch that sparked Kansas City’s come-from-behind victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. His contributions throughout the 2019 season helped the Chiefs win the franchise’s first Vince Lombardi Trophy in 50 years.
Hill now hopes to make a similar impact with the Dolphins, who haven’t won a Lombardi Trophy since January 1974.
