Chiefs, NFL likely to take action on Tyreek Hill this week | Pro Football Talk

Three days later, the Chiefs haven’t cut him. But they’ve made it clear that he won’t be with the team, at least for “the foreseeable future.” It’s expected that the team and the league will take some sort of additional action this week. Although the NFL typically does not invoke the Commissioner Exempt list in the offseason, the best outcome for now could be to put Hill on paid leave (there’s no pay to be earn) until the renewed criminal investigation ends, and until the NFL makes a decision on any type of league-imposed punishment.

2019 NFL draft: Which players were picked too high? Too low? | Yahoo! Sports

Overdrafted: Mecole Hardman, WR, Georgia

Round 2, Pick 24 (No. 56) - Kansas City Chiefs

Did the Chiefs reach to grab Hardman as a potential replacement for Tyreek Hill? Hardman was a five-star recruit in the 2016 class, but was recruited as an athlete. He began his career as a DB before transitioning into a speed receiver at Georgia. His college totals look like this: 60 catches, 961 yards and 11 touchdowns. UGA used him on a lot of jet sweeps and quick throws and sent him deep as a kick returner. Hardman has top-flight speed, but I’m a little skeptical that will translate to for a guy who may not run the crispest routes. KC is going to have to scheme things up to get him the ball in space. The upside is certainly there, but it may take Hardman a while to produce the way Chiefs fans are hoping. (Cooper)

New Chiefs WR Mecole Hardman on homophobic tweets: ‘That’s not who I am today’ | Kansas City Star

Hardman, now 21, was 13 years old when he began sending the tweets.

“That’s a long time ago,” Hardman said. “That’s probably immature of me at the time to tweet things like that. That’s my fault for doing that. I came a long way from that. That’s not who I am today.

“It’s a really immature decision on my part to even tweet anything like that. I’ve just got to live with that decision that I made and just move forward from it.”
