Police are still investigating two incidents of suspected child abuse at Hill’s home last month. It’s worth mentioning that Hill has not been charged.
- Jay Glazer of the Athletic heard some rumblings at the start of free agency that Hill was being discussed in trade talks, but he figured it was related to his contract situation at the time.
- Glazer believes the matter regarding multiple incidents at Hill’s home will take some time to be fully resolved.
- Ian Rapoport of NFL Media previously reported that the Chiefs have begun negotiations with Hill on what will end up being a record-setting deal when complete.
