The All-Pro wide receiver joined the Dolphins via trade with the Kansas City Chiefs.
In return, the Chiefs got five picks out of the transaction.
Meanwhile, Hill also signed a four-year, $120 million extension with the Dolphins, making him the highest-paid wide receiver in the league.
The West Alabama alum showed his excitement in joining the Dolphins from the plane that brought him to Miami.
In this video, he said, “Dolphin nation, I am so ready to be a part of Fins Up, man. Your boy, Cheetah, is so excited to meet all of you guys.”
However, he also mentioned that he is most excited to meet fellow wide receiver Jaylen Waddle whom he affectionately called “little penguin.”
Waddle turned out to be what the Dolphins expected after finishing his rookie season with 1,015 yards and six touchdowns.
But while Waddle and Hill will be on the same side of the field, the Super Bowl LIV champion will still challenge his teammate to a race.

Hill said, “I’m going to talk to him. We’re going to chop it up, we’re even going to get a few workouts in. Maybe even a race, man. Because hey, wherever I go, the Cheetah, he’s always got to prove he’s the fastest on the team no matter what.”
Will Cheetah Or Penguin Win?
Seeing Waddle and Hill against each other would be an entertaining race.
However, the Dolphins hope that none of them gets injured in the process.
While they may laugh about the outcome after the sprint, opposing teams won’t laugh when they try to cover both receivers.
If Waddle is already fast, imagine adding someone who might be the fastest player in the league.
Defensive backs will have nightmares in trying to slow down Hill and Waddle.
