The Kansas City Chiefs haunted the AFC over the last four seasons.
Throughout that stretch, they’ve been to four conference championship games and two Super Bowls.
They won Super Bowl LIV during a postseason wherein they had multiple come-from-behind victories.
Unfortunately, their run has ended when the Chiefs traded Hill to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for five draft picks.
Kansas City now owns the 29th and 50th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, as well as the Dolphins’ original fourth-rounder in the same year.
Also added to the Chiefs’ haul are fourth and sixth-round picks in 2023.
Hill also signed a four-year, $120 million contract with the Dolphins, making him the highest-paid wide receiver in history.
His $30 million annual average value surpasses Davante Adams‘ $28 million with the Las Vegas Raiders.
With Hill now in the AFC East, his former teammate in Kelce will even take a bigger role in the Chiefs’ offense.
However, Kelce showed no animosity towards Hill when he responded to the wide receiver’s appreciation tweet for the Chiefs and the city.

Kelce simply replied “Brothers for life!!” to Hill, who said in his message, “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!”
New-Look Chiefs Offense
Mahomes and Kelce will still be the top draws of the Chiefs’ offense.
However, they will have to replace the big-play threat that Hill provided.
Luckily, they have 12 picks in the upcoming draft which they can use to select Hill’s replacement.
Likewise, they can use those picks to trade for a wide receiver or move up the board to draft the successor of “Cheetah.”NEXT: Chiefs Have A Nice Consolation After Tyreek Hill Trade
