Yes, the Chiefs’ loss is the Miami Dolphins’ gain.
However, they still have quarterback Patrick Mahomes who always gives them a shot a winning thanks to his mobility.
Likewise, Travis Kelce remains one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the NFL.
Hill’s absence will change the dynamic of Kansas City’s offense.
However, there’s no need for the Chiefs to press the panic button, as FOX Sports’ Bucky Brooks revealed.
Andy Reid doesn’t view the loss of Hill as a big deal because the offense and scheme has always worked regardless of the perimeter players. With the @chiefs and @Eagles , the QB trumps everything in a system that “creates” stars. Like it or not, he’s off to find the next “star” https://t.co/HcuwYe6y1B

Brooks said, “Andy Reid doesn’t view the loss of Hill as a big deal because the offense and scheme has always worked regardless of the perimeter players. With the @Chiefs and @Eagles, the QB trumps everything in a system that ‘creates’ stars. Like it or not, he’s off to find that next ‘star.'”
No one will argue about the fact that quarterback remains the most important position on an NFL team.
Get it right and a team’s winning probability improves.
Luckily, the Chiefs have one of the best in Mahomes whom they’ve given a whopping ten-year, $450 million contract extension.
As for the next star that Reid referred to, they might have several candidates.
Who Will Take Over For Hill?
Aside from Kelce, Mecole Hardman might be the player that will benefit the most from Hill’s departure.
JuJu Smith-Schuster gives them a potent option, but he doesn’t have the attention-catching speed of Hill.
If none of those options pan out, the team could trade for a wide receiver using the five picks they acquired from Miami.
There’s also the draft route wherein they can use one of their 12 selections for 2022 to acquire Hill’s replacement.
