Now-former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill posted a letter to Kansas City, thanking the people for their support. The Chiefs traded the seventh-year receiver to the Miami Dolphins early Wednesday afternoon.

TODAY STARTS A NEW BEGINNING. I’M VERY EXCITED TO BE JOINING THE MIAMI DOLPHINS AND GET TO WORK. HOWEVER IT’S HARD THINKING ABOUT THE MEMORIES, PEOPLE AND FANS THAT MADE MY TIME IN KANSAS CITY SO GREAT.

TO MY FAMILY AND ESPECIALLY MY KIDS, THANK YOU FOR BEING MY BIGGEST SUPPORTERS. DADDY LOVES YOU!

I’M GRATEFUL TO THOSE WHO JOINED ME IN GIVING BACK TO THE KANSAS CITY COMMUNITY THROUGH THE TYREEK HILL FAMILY FOUNDATION. FROM COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS, YOUTH FOOTBALL CAMPS, FUNDING THE FIRST YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH NAVIGATOR AT MARILLAC, DONATING SUPPLIES TO THE HOMELESS AND VISITS WITH KIDS IN THE HOSPITAL, WE COULDN’T HAVE MADE THE IMPACT WITHOUT ALL OF YOU.

THANK YOU TO THE CHIEFS ORGANIZATION FOR BELIEVING IN ME. I’LL NEVER FORGET GETTING THE CALL IN 2016 THAT MY DREAM TO PLAY IN THE NFL WAS COMING TRUE. I WORKED HARD EVERY DAY TO SHOW MY APPRECIATION FOR YOU TAKING A CHANCE ON ME. TO COACH REID, COACH BIENIEMY AND COACH LEWIS, THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE TAUGHT ME NOT ONLY ABOUT FOOTBALL BUT ABOUT LIFE.

THANK YOU TO PAT, KELCE, DEMARCUS, AND DIETER ALONG WITH ALL MY TEAMMATES. I’M PROUD TO HAVE TAKEN THE FIELD WITH EACH OF YOU. YOU ARE WHAT MADE EACH DAY WORTH IT. WE ARE BROTHERS FOR LIFE!

TO THE FANS, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT. PLAYING FOR YOU HAS BEEN ONE OF THE GREATEST THINGS I HAVE DONE IN MY LIFE. YOUR ENERGY, PASSION AND LOYALTY FOR THE TEAM IS INDESCRIBABLE. IT WAS AN HONOR TO PLAY IN FRONT OF YOU.

KANSAS CITY WILL ALWAYS HOLD A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART!

CHEETAH OUT!
